Well, so much for weather drama. Dry streak intact (at least for Seattle), the weather has gone back to the same old sunny and pleasant conditions we've seen for the past month.
In the short term, we're still getting nicked from some clouds as very weak troughs swing into British Columbia. It's even brought some showers to the north Coast and northern Olympic Peninsula and to Skagit & Whatcom Counties, but they're expected to stay north of the Puget Sound region. So we'll call tonight partly to mostly cloudy, with lows in the upper 50s.
We'll see some morning clouds Saturday but should burn off to another sunny and warm day with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s -- although still a risk of a few showers toward the Canadian border.
Everyone's dry for Sunday -- morning clouds then mostly sunny with highs in the upper 70s to near 80.
The ridge of high pressure over the inland West will build back up again for Monday and Tuesday, warming the air mass a bit to allow highs to perhaps get into the low-mid 80s, but it won't last long; a marine push will return, and highs will drop back into the 70s for the balance of the week as the morning clouds return.
Still nothing resembling a widespread rainfall out there. And now we're getting into the driest two weeks of the year. Rain streak? Going to last a while longer...
Have a great weekend!
