Well, now we know what it's like living in San Diego. The seemingly endless days of warm sunshine were sure nice while they lasted. Now we're back to Seattle reality with a grayer sky and rain on the horizon.
A stronger surge of ocean air has occurred overnight, and with that comes noticeably cooler and cloudier conditions today. The low clouds even produced pockets of light drizzle this morning before breaking apart to afternoon sun.
A cloudy Friday will be a sign of an impending cold front set to bring the first rain in two weeks on Saturday. Cool clouds persistent through much of next week with another rain event on Wednesday.
We've only had about a quarter of an inch of rain this month, well below normal by 1.76" in Seattle. But April just might end with adequate rainfall after all with 1" to 1.5" in the forecast through the end of the month.
