Generally dry until Thursday

It will be generally dry through Wednesday. There are a few showers near the convergence zone, mainly north of Seattle and over the mountains.

It will be fairly mild with lows near 43 and highs near 52. Thursday will be stormy, but it won't be as strong as Saturday’s storm. There will be lots of rain with more than a ½ inch around the metro and more than 2 inches in the mountains and beaches. The winds will pick up with gusts near 35 mph later in the day and some gusts above 40 mph, mainly around the beach and north of Seattle.

The strongest part of the storm appears to be after 5 p.m. until about midnight as we head into Friday. Friday and Saturday look dry and Sunday will be damp and breezy. Walter. 11/5/13
