For rain fans, I was going to say, "too bad you can't bottle up this weather" but I guess technically, you can. I mean, essentially you could turn your water bottle into a glorified rain gauge :)
For sun fans, it's just "get me to Thursday."
The current weather system blowing through today is bringing what still looks like what will be the last bout of rainfall in the lowlands and snow in the mountains this month. For the lowlands, it's just rainy and breezy but a decent dose of snow is coming to the mountains. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect above 3,500 feet through midnight tonight for 1-2 feet of new snow around Stevens Pass to Mount Baker, and 3-6 inches of snow around Snoqualmie Pass.
Rain will continue overnight with gusty winds but speeds staying under any levels to cause impacts. Lows be in the low-mid 40s.
The stormy weather and higher than usual tides could cause some minor tidal flooding through Wednesday. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. Tuesday for Grays Harbor county coast and from 5-10 a.m. Wednesday for interior lowland areas adjacent to Puget Sound, Hood Canal, Admiralty Inlet & Northern Inland waters, according to the National Weather Service.
There will be some lingering rain Wednesday morning then changing to showers and decreasing through the day with highs in the low 50s.
Then, rain chances are mostly done for a while. Expect some areas of fog then partly sunny skies Thursday with highs around 50.
A very weak system may bring a few sprinkles Thursday night, but moreso just an increase in clouds. Friday and Saturday return to sunshine after morning fog with highs around 50. Another very weak system bumps into the ridge on Sunday that likely won't do more than just bring some extra clouds around and remain dry with highs still in the low 50s. Much of next week looks dry and sunny after fog with highs in the low 50s.
So despite the rain today, sunshine looks to hold a majority stake on the rest of the month, unless you've got one of those fancy rain bottles hanging around :)
