Dry streak ends with soggy fall weekendon October 14, 2012 @ 8:00 pm (Updated: 9:54 pm - 10/14/12 )
The first drops fell overnight Friday and haven't really let up since. Those lucky enough to catch a dry spell had just enough time to snag a pumpkin or clear a storm drain.
KING-5's Lisa Van Cise says the rain and wind are expected to die down overnight and into Monday morning, which could make for a fairly dry commute.
But it won't last long with a new front moving in over the region Monday afternoon. High temperatures will top out in the low 60s.
University of Washington Atmospheric Sciences Professor Cliff Mass wrote in his blog the reason the temperatures haven't felt too chilly is because this latest front moved in from the southwest. We spent most of Sunday in a "subtropical current of warm air."
