After sun on Tuesday, rainy pattern is due
If you haven’t gotten your dose of precious late November sunshine yet, you’d better get outside Tuesday. A change is coming.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has had measurable precipitation just once in the past five days, the 1.26 inches of rain that fell on Black Friday shoppers trolling for parking spaces outside local malls.
Tuesday is expected to be dry and mostly sunny, with a high of about 49.
But by late Wednesday afternoon, a wet weather system is expected to approach from the south, followed by “a series of Pacific storms” dousing the region for several days, according to the Weather Service.
That translates into a 50 percent chance of rain Wednesday, and rain likely each day Thursday through next Monday.
November is historically the area’s wettest month, and this November has done its part. Through Sunday, Sea-Tac had recorded 6.71 inches of rain for the month, surpassing the 6.57 inches that normally falls during the entire month.
