The National Weather Service issued a Special Weather Statement today with good news and not-so good news.
Tomorrow, according to forecasters, could start off a little rainy but skies are expected to clear and temperatures rise into the 60s. This unseasonably warm weather is expected to be short-lived though.
“There is a good chance Monday will be the only dry day this week as several fronts move through the area [western Washington] Tuesday through the end of the week,” according to forecasters.
The first front arrives Tuesday bringing more rain and blustery weather. That front will be followed by another expected to arrive Wednesday bringing more of the same. Other weather
systems are expected to follow later in the week.
While the Pacific Northwest is accustomed to rain, especially during April, forecasters note, “The rain yesterday pushed the monthly rain total at Sea-Tac past the 50 percent mark for the normal for the entire month (1.37 inches through the 7th versus the entire monthly normal of 2.71 inches). There is a good chance by next weekend most places in Western Washington will have already surpassed their April monthly normals for rainfall.”
