Happy first day of summer. Er...spring.
For only the second time in Seattle history, we've got three days in the 70s in March (1994 the other time) with another daily record high smashed to bits.
But relief is on the way as we finally begin to kill off this pesky east wind that's been blow-torching the region this week.
The wind should begin to ease this evening and eventually switch around to the west, which will be akin to flipping on an air conditioner. Lows tonight will be more bunched together than the past few days that have had Seattle near 60 while the South Sound has been near freezing. Now we should all be in the 40s -- low 40s in the outlying areas; upper 40s around the city.
A few more clouds will be around on Thursday but still a partly sunny day on tap with highs cooling back closer to around 60 degrees. Yep, find the sweatshirts again and put those shorts back in the drawer.
We'll hold dry but increasing clouds Friday morning, with light rain courtesy of a dying cold front moving in Friday evening or early Friday night. Highs will again be around 60.
Light showers hold Friday night with scattered showers continuing Saturday amid mostly cloudy skies as temperatures may not get out of the 50s.
Your best outdoor weekend day is Sunday. A brief ridge of high pressure will call a halt to the showers giving us another partly to mostly sunny day with more seasonable highs in the upper 50s.
Another weather system rolls in late Monday for a renewed chance of light rain with showers holding into Tuesday with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. More showers remain in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday.
