Clouds and cooler temps expected through the week

The threat of thundershowers diminished overnight, and we woke to mainly cloudy and quieter.  Lows will bottom out in the 50s throughout the Sound, which is typical. Afternoon clearing should make for a pretty nice looking day, and highs will top out in the upper 60s and low 70s.

We'll see similar conditions for the first few days of the work week, but a cool down is coming as the week goes on.  Strong onshore flow will make for stubborn cloud cover by mid-week, and we'll have a difficult time clearing out in the afternoons.  We may even see a few light showers, especially Wednesday.  Highs will struggle to make it to the 70-degree mark, which is definitely cool for late August (average highs are in the middle 70s).

Even cooler weather is in the forecast as we slide toward the weekend.  An upper trough of low pressure seems to want to sink over the top of the Northwest by Friday and Saturday.  This will cool temperatures even further, and we may have trouble getting out of the middle SIXTIES by the weekend.  The trough will also bring a renewed threat for showers, especially by Sunday.

Have a good day,

Shannon
