Forecast: A change is underway back to seasonable weather for the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park areas. A Pacific stormfront is approaching the coast, threatening to bring a rainy start to our Tuesday morning. A series of Pacific fronts is expected to brush through the area through the end of the week and into next weekend.

Steady rain Tuesday morning could bring us a quarter to a half inch of rainfall, giving our lawns and plants a much needed watering. After the stormfront passes the steady rain is expected to turn into showers Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday evening through next Monday the forecast is almost identical with showers expected each day and night. High temperatures in the low to mid 60's, with lows in the mid 40's to low 50's. This is much cooler weather than we got used to during the first half of May.

Speaking of temperatures, here's how we did for the last seven days:

As forecasted we were slightly above normal from Tuesday through Thursday last week. Friday and Saturday ended up being the two warm days in the heat wave, with high temperatures just on either side of 80°F at the Richmond Beach station. Away from the water we saw a couple temperatures into around 81-83°F.

This heatwave did break some daily high temperature records for Seattle; however, we've had warmer heat waves earlier in the spring many times in previous years. This type of event is actually fairly typical during this time of year, it just hasn't happened on these exact two days since 1945.
