Springtime sun is finally here, and it’s going to get warmer

There is no rain in the forecast until Monday, and the weekend is expected to be downright balmy.

When was the last time this happened? The weather, we mean: Sunny and warm the entire week!

The National Weather Service is forecasting blue skies and, eventually, highs in the 70s through the weekend. There is no rain in the forecast until Monday.

Says the weather service in its forecast discussion: “The weekend will see temps peak — in fact, the record high for the 17th of April at Sea-Tac Airport is 80 degrees set in 2016. We have a forecast of 76 for Saturday at the airport and naturally there’s some guidance that is a bit warmer than the current forecast — so that record has a chance of being broken.”
