Washington summer tradition continuesJune 23rd, 2012 by Matthew Leach
The weather cooperated (at least for the most part) for the Rock and Roll marathon that took place in Seattle today. Despite periods of rain, it was overall cool and pleasant running weather. Of course, to most it probably felt more like a November run than a late June one.
Most of my family is in Utah right now where it could very well reach 100 degrees tomorrow. And while that might sound nice to some around here, in the outskirts of the Salt Lake City area they are currently battling wild fires and there are warnings posted for potentially new fires springing up due to high winds and very dry conditions. So I guess no matter where you go, there will always be some troubling weather event to be concerned about.
Our burden for the time being will be much less dramatic than the blazing fires to our southeast. In fact, it will be the exact opposite. Today’s high temperature was about 11 degrees below normal at a ”frigid” 59 degrees. Will there be any relief for tomorrow? Things are definitely looking up as clouds are already clearing as we speak. We’ll see some residual showers tonight which will give way to clearing into tomorrow morning. So our Sunday should be generally partly sunny with showers from time to time. Highs will rise to the mid 60s.
Monday will be very similar, but Tuesday through Thursday looks like our terrific trio of nice weather days this coming week. Skies will be partly sunny with highs in the upper 60s Tuesday to mid and upper 70s Thursday (which is kind of like a carbon copy of this past week!)
Then…wouldn’t you know it…clouds thicken and showers enter the picture once again for our Friday and into the weekend. Still no signs of incredible warmth to envelope the region anytime too soon, but I’ll keep my eyes on the long range Have a great weekend,
