More Rainy Weather on Tap

Sunny and dry on some days, cool and damp on others. When all is said and done, this April is likely to wind up in the “not half bad” category.

The only problem? We’ve still got plenty of the bad half left.

Another Dry Easter?

Another Dry Easter?

Could we make it three in a row?

Mother Nature has been kind to Seattle the past two Easters, keeping the city dry and pleasant after a dour stretch from 2005-2011 that saw rain dampen the holiday every year. While really warm weather looks to be out of the cards this time around—Seattle soared to 70 degrees on Easter in 2012, and 69 last year—there’s a decent chance we’ll be able to keep the rain at bay on Sunday, potentially giving us three consecutive dry Easters for the first time since the mid-1990s.

Wet and Cooler Through Thursday

It’s the beginning of the end.

Our nearly week-long stretch of pleasant weather, which saw high temperatures jump from the upper 50s to within a hair of 70—Sea-Tac hit 69 degrees yesterday—will slowly wind to a close tonight as cooler air begins trickling in.

A Case of the Mondays

It’s generally everyone’s most despised day of the week, but this spring, Monday is making the case for a little more love.

Because it’s the only day capable of reaching the 60s.

Showery Weekend Ahead; Warm on Monday

What’s a little light rain after a month of endless downpours?

Showers are moving into the region this afternoon as a cold front stumbles ashore, moistening the skies over Seattle after a much-appreciated break from the rain. Unlike the deluges of March, however, this system won’t offer much in the way of precipitation, with amounts topping out at a quarter-inch or less the rest of today.
