Enjoy today’s sunshine. This could be the warmest, driest day of the week, with sunny skies and a high of about 70 in the Puget Sound area, according to the National Weather Service.
Ten days into June, we’ve only had one day of measurable rain: June 2, when .04 inches fell at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
But showers will creep into the forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The wettest day could be Wednesday, with a 70 percent chance of rain.
For many locals, this June has been a pleasant departure from the usual pattern. Seattle often has to struggle through a cool, damp Junes, waiting for Independence Day to kick off the sunny season.
The good news in the forecast is that we may be drying out by the coming weekend. The forecast in a nutshell: partly sunny with a high near 69 on Friday, mostly cloudy with a high near 70 on Saturday and mostly cloudy, with a chance of showers, and a high near 69 on Sunday.
We’ll keep an eye on that Sunday forecast to let you know whether this will be a good Father’s Day to take dad for an outdoor adventure – or to a movie.
