Temperatures are currently forecast to reach into the 50s today and into the 60s Sunday and Monday. These high temperatures are in contrast to wintery highs in the 30s and 40s over the past months.
National Weather Service forecasters say a sunny weekend is in store for Western Washington. “After the cool start to the day, temperatures will warm into the 50s by the middle of the afternoon.”
Overnight lows will fall again to the mid 30s tonight but will be in the mid 40s in the days following.
An increasing offshore flow along with the warmer temperatures in the higher altitudes will result in Sunday’s high temperature ending up 5 degrees or so higher than today’s.
Temperatures are expected to increase even further Monday, putting it in line as the warmest day of this dry spell as a colder and wet front is expected to be stalled offshore until Tuesday. The high for Monday is currently expected to be in the mid 60s. The record high for the day is 64°, set in 1965, as recorded at Bellingham International Airport.
Tuesday is forecast with cooler and wetter weather. The high temperature is expected to be around 50° with a 90% chance of rain. Rainfall total for Tuesday is expected near a quarter of an inch
