The “chance” of rain that the National Weather Service said could keep Seattle from reaching a record dry spell has now become “likely.”
Rain showers could last a few hours late Sunday night and early Monday morning, according to meteorologist Dana Felton.
In order to set a new dry-spell record, Seattle would have to make it past Tuesday without measurable rain. The record for Seattle, set in 1951, is 51 days without measurable rain. If this summer doesn’t break the record, it’s at least already taken silver in the dry spell category.
Felton said the Seattle area should be back to sunny skies and warm weather by the middle of next week, though. He expects Wednesday temperatures to be the mid-60s and Thursday and Friday temperatures to be in the mid-70s. The extended forecast past that, which is much less definite, is for more dry, warm weather, he said.
