Spring weather warming up for sunny weekendon March 27, 2013 @ 8:56 am (Updated: 10:06 am - 3/27/13 )
On an overcast Wednesday, KIRO Radio Seattle's Morning News host Dave Ross impatiently asked KING 5 meteorologist Rich Marriott: "What would it take to get some sunshine this weekend?"
Turns out it won't take much.
"It's very simple to pull that off," says Marriott.
Forecasters say the chance of showers Wednesday and Thursday will give way to clearing skies Friday and a mostly clear weekend.
"You only have to make it to Friday to see that sun," said Marriot. "Then Saturday, Sunday and Monday look for mostly sunny skies and high temperatures pushing into the mid 60s."
The National Weather Service forecasts highs the rest of the week at least in the 60s with 70s expected in some parts of the state.
Sunday is expected to be the warmest day of the weekend, with highs expected near 70.
The last time it reached 70 degrees in March at Sea-Tac Airport was March 29, 2004.
