Rain showers are meandering through the Puget Sound region this evening as a storm front that passed through today moves away. The consistent cloud cover and intermittent showers, combined with this evening’s early sunset, gave today a strong “Autumn-like” feel. A perfect day to sit inside and watch the cool and wet weather pass by.
The National Weather Service mentioned that the Puget Sound Convergence Zone would be active tonight. The WRF-GFS weather model by the University of Washington, corroborates with the forecast. The computer generated rain map shows an area of strong showers forming near Everett, that moves South into Seattle, and eventually into the Cascade foothills throughout the night.
Looking into the near future, the showers are expected to persist until Tuesday afternoon. The weather will then be mostly dry until Friday and rain will stick around for the weekend as well.
