Cooler weather and rain showers will be the resounding theme for Seattle this weekend.

The city set a new record for the wettest February-to-April time frame on Thursday. A total of 19.29 inches had fallen to that point, breaking the 1972 record of 18.97 inches for the same time period.

With temperatures trending slightly below normal, the air will feel cooler around the city as highs reach the low to mid-50s.

However, the relief from the rain won't last as rain returns to the area on Sunday. Those headed to the last of the games between the Mariners and Rangers at Safeco Field should be a rain jacket for travel to the venue.

Heading into the new week, sunshine will return to the city by Tuesday as temperatures warm into the upper 60s.
