Stormy Start to the Weekend for Seattle

A quick-moving storm system will push its way into the Seattle area Friday night into the weekend.

According to Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, most of the rain will fall on the Olympic Peninsula Friday night from Seattle and Bellingham, Wash., to Portland, Ore., later Friday night into Saturday.

Blustery winds will accompany the precipitation, gusting up to 40 or 50 mph near the coast. Temperatures will drop into the low 50s after Friday, with overnight lows in the upper 30s and low 40s.

In higher elevations, the precipitation will fall as snow. In the Cascades, snow levels will drop to 3,000 feet.

By Sunday, leftover moisture from the storm will keep showers around, though they will be more sparse and less intense than the storms that started the weekend.
