Looking Better for the Memorial Day Weekend
Well, the forecast is looking up for Memorial Day, so it looks increasingly that you will be able to enjoy that picnic, trip, parade, or other outdoor activity. Not perfect, no heat wave, but good enough, and considerably better than the outlook a few days ago.
But there is a real lesson in this--we have to be within 3-4 days to have some confidence in the forecast. Right now it looks like there will be considerable showers on Friday, with a convergence over the north Sound and lots of showers on the western side of the Cascades.
Saturday will star out with some showers, but by 3 PM, the region will be mainly dry.
Sunday looks good...dry and temperatures well in the 60s. That is the day to plan to main outdoor fun. Clouds increasing later in the day and perhaps showers reaching the coast late in the afternoon.
Monday will have some showers.
