A pesky upper level low continues to spin over us, alternating showers and sunbreaks during the day and showers and starbreaks during the overnight. We'll see little change in this pattern for the next several days to go--pretty typical early April fare! The only thing atypical is that it's still pretty chilly out there, considering it's spring.
Afternoon highs should be in the middle 50s, on average, this time of year, but we've struggled to get too far past the middle 40s around the Sound for the last several days.
We should finally start to remedy this over the weekend, with fewer showers and more blue sky as the weekend goes on. This will allow for a slow warming trend.
A more noticeable jump in temps should show up by Monday and Tuesday, as clearer skies take over thanks to the west coast's rain going south to soak California's Mt. Shasta and San Francisco Bay Area instead. The brighter weather should allow us to creep back into the middle 50s where we belong.
If the pattern holds, we may even head back toward 60 by the middle of next week--a nice change of pace from the chill!
Have a great night,
