Seattle weather: Clouds, showers and cool temperatures this weekend

The next week will be cooler in Seattle with a mix of clouds, sunshine and showers at times.

May has been a mixed bag for Seattle with chilly days and toasty days, but the week will end with cooler than average temperatures.

Sea-Tac has only .30 inches of rain in the bucket for the month. The average for May is 1.88 inches. Late-spring rain can help delay fire season, so root for some more precipitation to end the month.
