After being hammered by frequent showers throughout March, Seattle will see a brief lull in the weather for the first few days in April before showers return late in the week.

"It was a really wet month with a total of 9.44 inches of rain," Meteorologist Andy Mussoline said.

For March, 3.72 inches of rain is normal for the month, he said.

"That's 254 percent of normal," he said. "They just keep getting clobbered with rain this month."

Temperatures will remain in the high 50s and low 60s throughout the week.

As the week moves forward, rain is set to return to the area Thursday and into the early weekend.

"The worst of it is going to be on Friday afternoon and into early Saturday morning," Mussoline said.
