Seattle area’s weekend weather: Rain, showers, wind — rinse and repeat

A complicated pattern of weather systems swirling off the coast will have Western Washington stuck in a well-known fall refrain through the weekend and much of next week.

Rain, then showers, then rinse and repeat.

The winds expected Thursday afternoon aren’t expected to be significant in the Seattle area, but could pack a bigger punch along the coast, where a wind advisory has been issued, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.

In Seattle, wind gusts of 35 to 40 miles per hour are expected, according to meteorologist Matthew Cullen. Those could knock down some branches and bring limited power outages, but they won’t form a “major windstorm by any stretch,” he said.

“Every 18 to 24 hours we’re going to have another organized line of steady rain, then showers in between, and then the next round of rain comes in,” he said.

So basically, he said, it’s November.
