Some on social media are commenting that today felt more like autumn than summer! Clouds prevailed for much of today for the Central Sound. Highs are well below-average, primarily ranging in the 60s. While Seattle was stuck beneath the clouds, the North/South Sound and the Olympic Peninsula enjoyed an abundance of blue skies.
Onshore winds contributed to our gray and cozy conditions today. Our winds shift to the north on Sunday, a wind direction that is famous for clearing our skies and warming up our temperatures this time of year. That northerly flow will allow highs to boost to the 70s for most spots tomorrow. Honestly, tomorrow will be perfect by summer standards around here. The mid 70s are very tolerable and pleasant for most folks. Warm sunshine will make for great conditions for getting outside. Enjoy!
Monday, sunshine continues. Temperatures could warm by a few degrees, nudging closer to 80 degrees in Seattle.
Tuesday and Wednesday, gray skies in the morning will clear for afternoon sunshine. Highs stay comfortable in the mid 70s for most.
Thursday, mostly cloudy skies are expected. Friday, one model is suggesting spotty showers, but I'm not sold on that outcome quite yet.
Increasing sunshine and a nice warm-up then look likely by next weekend.
Soak up our glorious sunshine this week!
