A break from the rain this morning, but showers will continue this afternoon
After all the rain and lightning overnight, the Seattle area will dry out for a few hours, according to the National Weather Service.
“We’re kind of in a little break here in the metro area, but there’s another batch coming down from the north. The amount of rain this afternoon is not going to cause any problems,” said meterologist Dana Felton.
Felton said that light showers will continue tomorrow. A stretch of warm weather will kick off Sunday, with temperatures in the Seattle building into the low-80s by the middle of next week.
At Sea-Tac, 1.73 inches of rain fell between 5 a.m Thursday and 5 a.m. Friday – breaking the record of 1.5 inches, Felton said.
KING5 is reporting that a street buckled in Burien at South 96th Street and Eighth Avenue South. The street sank about six feet and the hole was about 30 feet long and 12 feet wide.
Tomorrow, we’re looking at just a 30 percent chance of showers and then some sun later in the day and a high of 73 degrees.
Sunday looks even better: mostly sunny and a high of 76.
