Brace for a seesaw Seattle weather week, and don’t give up on spring

Seattle Times reporter

Get ready for a little seesaw action in the next week, while spring shows off its varied outfits: After a rainy, airy and cool Wednesday there are persistent showers on Thursday, on Friday dry and warm Friday, on Saturday partly blue skies and warm .

Then … rain again on Sunday.

The front moving through Puget Sound brings rain, of course, but also low snow and winter driving conditions onto the mountain passes, said Gary Schneider of the National Weather Service in Seattle.

Through Thursday, persistent morning showers will give way to warmer temperatures and clearer skies, and through Friday it will be dry with possible blue sky sightings.

Our next system will move into Wednesday night with lowland showers and mountain snow! A zone of convergence over Snohomish and King Counties probably later tomorrow! #wawx pic.twitter.com/iiTJ5AeI16

Saturday should be the driest and warmest of the week, with a high temperature expected to be 58 in Seattle, a few degrees higher than the normal value of 55 to 56, the weather service said.

But it will be a divided weekend, said meteorologist Dustin Guy.

“Saturday will be the warmest but we have a good system and we will cool off on Sunday as the rain increases on Sunday afternoon and lasts until Monday,” said Guy.

“It’s back and forth,” he said, “but that’s better than consecutive rainy days over and over again.”
