The potential for spotty showers will linger throughout the week in Seattle.
After sunny and warmer weather kicks off the week in Seattle, cooler temperatures and wet weather moves in by Tuesday.
"Cooler weather is expected by Tuesday as a weak front pushes into the area from the West," said Accuweather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards. "There will also be a few showers and more clouds than recent days," he said.
Temperatures on Tuesday will only reach the upper 60s.
"There could be a pop-up shower Wednesday afternoon, but many areas will remain dry," Edwards said.
Highs will be right around normal in the low 70s. Overnight lows will stay in the mid-50s through Wednesday.
While Thursday and Friday will be partly sunny, the chance for a passing shower or two will continue into both days as high temperatures remain right around 70 F.
