Big cool-down on the way

SEATTLE -- We're starting out today with some light rain, but it should taper off.

This afternoon will be partly sunny, but cooler than yesterday, topping out near normal - mid 60s. There is still a chance of an isolated shower this afternoon, but I think it'll be pretty good for the May 17 Parade in Ballard.  Ya sure, ya betcha!

Saturday looks showery and cooler, with highs only around 60. Sunday could have a morning shower, then it'll be partly sunny, low 60s. Monday looks dry. Then mid-week next week, expect showers and cooler temps -- topping out only in the upper 50s to near 60.
