A windy Friday is in the works, just days after Western Washington finally broke into the 60s.
Tuesday’s flirtation with warmth was short lived. The region woke up to rain Wednesday.
More rain is coming Thursday (April 6) and Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
On Friday, the region will feel the effects of a storm passing mostly to the west of Washington.
Sustained speeds of 25-35 mph and gusts up to 50 mph are forecast for the coast and Puget Sound late Friday morning through Friday night.
The Weather Service reminds residents that trees are more likely to fall, power can fail and evening commutes can be difficult during windstorms.
Bring your umbrella to the Daffodil Parade on Saturday: The chance of precipitation is 90 percent, according to the Weather Service.
Parade times: Tacoma, 10:15 a.m.; Puyallup, 12:45 p.m.; Sumner, 2:30 p.m.; Orting 5 p.m.
Saturday’s high will be 52.
It’ll be a mixed bag on Sunday and Monday with a chance of showers and a remote possibility of seeing the sun.
The sun’s return becomes more certain Tuesday.
