Seattle-area weather may not be perfect for Seafair weekend, but it (hopefully) shouldn’t hamper your plans to watch the Blue Angels.
Saturday saw temperatures nearing 76 degrees, with sporadic showers.
Sunday is the more problematic day. We should have rain in the morning with some clearing in the afternoon. There is a 40% chance of rain in the morning, tapering off in the afternoon. Temperatures will be in the mid-70s.
The National Weather Service in Seattle forecasts pleasant conditions for the rest of Sunday afternoon.
Warm conditions are expected through Sunday resulting in a moderate level of HeatRisk across the Puget Sound lowlands. Be sure to hydrate properly if participating in outdoor events. #wawx pic.twitter.com/clWobo30rz

One of the events that could be impacted by the weather is the Blue Angels airshow. Because of their precise formations, cloudy conditions can force officials to delay or cancel flights so keep an eye on the Seafair website.

Officials at Seafair told KIRO Newsradio that weather issues are not even on their radar.
Beautiful evening but #Seafair weekend could have some weather complications: clouds and even a chance for rain showers?
