Last month the #Raingry hashtag started trending on Seattle social media feeds, but we're way past that point by now. Amazing October-to-April rain totals continue to tally up (as of this morning, we are at 44.69" at Sea-Tac Airport for that timeframe, much more in nearly 7 months than the normal twelve month total of 37.49"), and with more precipitation on deck this afternoon, the relentless spring rain goes on.
We started out mainly dry on Tuesday, with early lows in the 40s, The leading edge of the next disturbance is just offshore, and the rain will make a comeback to the beaches by mid to late morning. Eventually Puget Sound also returns to the rainy action, with wet commuting for most of the urban core by the evening drive back home. Highs will top out mainly in the 50s--cool again, as we should routinely hover near 60 degrees this time of year.
Wednesday still looks showery and gusty as a strong fetch of moisture continues to pump precipitation into the west coast (Oregon will be dealing with the brunt of this), and we'll hang on to lingering showers or thundershowers into Thursday, too.
Much like last week, we're still looking to Friday as being one of the brightest of the bunch this week, with partly cloudy skies and highs near 60 to wrap up the work week.
The dry spell lasts into the first half of the weekend, but the rain moves in again late Saturday into Sunday, finishing off the month the same way we've spent most of it: wet!
Have a great day,
