That was nice of the sun to peek out this morning -- just to give another morsel of proof that it still exists.
And soon, it'll be time to go back into hiding.
Another storm is set to blow through the region, with rain developing around mid-afternoon and making for a soggy evening commute. Highs will be around 50.
While the rain may seem the same, at least the snow levels will be a little lower with this storm. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect from 6 p.m. Monday through 9 a.m. Tuesday for up to 10 inches of snow, including Stevens and Snoqualmie passes.
The rain will briefly lighten up and turn to showers as Tuesday progresses, but emphasis on "brief". Highs stay around 50.
The next storm arrives early Wednesday morning for another soaking day of steady rains and gusty winds with highs around 50.
Back to the "pseudo" break of Thursday -- as in scattered showers as opposed to steady rains. Then back to the steady rains again on Friday. Highs? Still around 50.
Rain still sticks around over the weekend before the pattern finally begins to change next week. It does look like we'll finally begin to dry out, but we'll also start getting a bit cooler. So far it's not THAT cool, snow fans, but should do a better job of getting some new snow in the mountains... and do a better job of proving that yes, indeed, the sun is still up there! Next challenge: Proving the Olympic Mountains are still there!
