While persistent rain showers will remain throughout the area for much of the weekend, a chance for drier weather is in store early next week.
Rain will continue into much of the weekend, with little chance for the city to dry out.
“It will be very wet and damp and there will be frequent showers,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Erik Pindrock said.
Temperatures will stay steady throughout the weekend and into early next week, hovering in the mid-50s, which is around normal for this time of year, he added.
Overnight lows throughout the weekend and early workweek will drop into the low 40s.
After a damp weekend, relief from the rain is expected for this first half of next week from Monday through Wednesday, he said, with the frequent showers breaking off.
“Early next week is when they will get a break,” he said. “There will be nothing more than some spotty showers.”
Seattle has been hit with a little more than 8 inches of rain this month.
“That’s more than double what they would normally get for the month,” Pindrock said. “They’ve had a very wet month.”
As the weather becomes milder, Prindrock said temperatures should remain steady with intervals of clouds and sunshine throughout the days ahead.
