Good morning! After three days of record-shattering temperatures in western Washington, we're tracking a cooler and more unsettled pattern ahead.
For today, temperatures will only range in the low to mid 60s. This is above-average, but noticeably cooler compared to what we've had this week! Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies are on deck for the area along with isolated sprinkles.
Friday, clouds thicken up. Our next storm system will be approaching the Pacific Northwest. This will increase the humidity, kick up the winds, spark rain (afternoon showers for the coast and SW interior, evening rain for much of the rest of western Washington) and cool our temperatures further.
Saturday, only isolated showers with partly sunny skies are in the forecast. Clearing skies will brighten up Sunday; it should be nice for getting outdoors! Monday will be more wet and active (mountain snow is a potential as well). Tuesday and Wednesday only offer isolated to scattered showers. Throughout the entire seven day forecast, highs will range in the 50s and 60s. It won't be as warm as what we've experienced so far this week, but it's not as cold as the month of February -- that's for sure!
Hope you watch between 4:30 - 7 and 11 a.m.!
