Sunday's drying out, but get ready for a very wet Monday

The great part about the rain falling overnight?  It leaves room for some sunny improvement for the second half of the weekend on Sunday.  After some morning fog, partly sunny skies will take over again by mid-day.  We'll see a few leftover showers behind that passing cold front--particularly near the foothills or in the Puget Sound Convergence Zone (south end of Snohomish County), but overall it should be another decent day for outdoor activities.  Highs will cool off a bit, with most cities near the 60 degree mark by the afternoon.

A stronger storm arrives for Columbus Day on Monday.  The morning commute should remain dry, but the front will spread rain back in to the region by mid-day, and Monday afternoon looks soggy and a bit breezy.  Temperatures will cool back into the 50s as the precipitation returns.

Tuesday and Wednesday look cool and showery.  Highs will struggle to get much above the mid-50s...a cool and damp pair of days for the middle of the week.

Thursday should be a transition day...with higher pressure beginning to build in, it should be mainly dry with high temps closer to average (which is 63 degrees at SeaTac for this time of year).

It's a ways out, but at this point Friday looks like a beauty of a day.  Partly to mostly sunny skies will follow some morning fog, and highs will climb back into the middle 60s in the warmer locales.

Another fall storm should bring the rain back by mid-weekend on Saturday afternoon.
