National Weather Service Seattle WA
921 AM PDT Thu Jul 20 2017

Current warnings/watches...none.

.DISCUSSION...
A weak weather system will move eastward over the area today,
bringing cooler, more moist, and wet conditions. Showers so far have
been light, though in the far nor Cascades there has been a quarter
to nearly a half an inch of rain. Weak weather systems will brush
the area to the north Friday night and Saturday for a slight chance
of showers at the coast and the far north. This will be a pattern of
morning clouds with afternoon sun. Early next week will warm up as a
upper ridge builds over the area before the next chance of showers
mid week.

 Forecast for 20 foot wind speed (valleys and ridge tops) are 10
 minute averages reflecting RAWS winds.
