Cheer up: Sun to return by the weekend
The good news, weather-wise, is that by the weekend, these next few days may be just a soggy memory.
“We had several heavy shower bands move through yesterday, and it’s possible we’ll get a few more before this is over” said Mike McFarland of the National Weather Service.
These aren’t torrential rains, but they’re enough to make highways slick and complicate our commutes.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport had .32 of an inch of rain in the 24-hour period ending at 5 a.m. today. Southwest Washington had heavier rain, up to 1.8 inches at a Forest Service weather station near Elma, Grays Harbor County, and a inch in Shelton and Yelm.
The forecast for Sea-Tac calls for showers today and a high of 69, with heavier rain tonight and Tuesday.
Showers are expected to continue through Wednesday, but sun is back in the forecast for Thursday through Sunday, with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
