(4/29) Rain to end Friday and start the weekend

While it’s been a nice day for many around the Sound Friday, some light showers have popped up here and there, especially south of Puget Sound while at the coast, rain is poised to move ashore and then overspread the area this evening and tonight. The rain should begin for the Everett/Seattle/Tacoma corridor around 9-11 p.m. but a few showers are possible ahead of the rain.

Rain will continue through Saturday morning but taper off later in the day. With some afternoon sunshine, we could see an isolated thunderstorm develop mainly south and west of Puget Sound. Otherwise, some spotty showers of rain later in the day are possible. In the mountains, a couple inches of snow can be expected above 4,000 feet so Stevens and Snoqualmie passes at and below that elevation shouldn’t have significant travel problems. Highs tomorrow will be in the 50s in the lowlands.

A weak ridge of high pressure gives us a drier day Sunday though some morning fog is possible. Highs will be in the lower 60s in Seattle – about where we ought to be to start May. Seattle’s average high for Sunday is 63 degrees. Clouds will be on the increase once again by Sunday evening ahead of more rain.

Expect some rain at times for Monday but tapering showers through Tuesday. Wednesday will be drier and warmer with highs in the upper 60s before a return to some rain showers and sunbreaks by next Thursday and Friday.
