Rain, rain, showers, wind and more rain are in the forecast for the next couple days and through the weekend.

Then, next week , a new weather system will move in, bringing — get ready —  rain!

National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Burke said a wind advisory would be in effect along the coast and north interior from midnight Wednesday to 2 p.m. on Thursday. That will affect areas such as Forks, Quileute, Bellingham and Friday Harbor, he said.

Thursday in the Seattle area is expected to be slightly warmer with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s, but still wet with a forecast calling for rain and showers, he said.

Friday looks to be the best day this week, he said, with only “a chance of showers,” but on Saturday “showers are likely.”

Sunday is forecast to be cloudy with a chance for showers, Burke said.

Burke said there is no immediate forecast for more snow, which fell in the Hood Canal area on Wednesday. Some areas reported as much as 4 inches accumulation, he said.
