Finally: Northwest weather can spark jealousy

While the Pacific Northwest was bathed in warmth and sunshine today — the fourth nice weekend in a row — much of the East Coast was hammered by torrential rain and frigid winds, even snow.

Puget Sound is expected to reach the low 70s this evening, the warmest day so far this year, but Monday will likely be a little cooler, cloudier and possibly wet by late afternoon. After Wednesday, high temperatures will hover in the upper 50s.

In contrast, the East Coast is bracing for an even worse week as gusty storms continue to disrupt public events. Professional baseball games were canceled today in New York and Washington. Even an Earth Day celebration was canceled at a park in Virginia Beach, Va.
