Even if winter is not officially over, it’s sure going to feel like it this weekend.

With dry weather, sun and highs that are expected to reach into the 60s in some areas of the Puget Sound region and the upper 50s in others, this weekend is going to feel like spring, according to the National Weather Service in Seattle.

“If you want to be outside, it looks like this is going to be a good time,” meteorologist Jeff Michalski said.

First though, we have one more little stretch of wet weather to make it through, he said.

After rain on Thursday, Friday will be “a transition day,” according to Michalski, with some showers in the early hours that are predicted to taper off during the day. Forecasters expect Friday’s high temperature to reach 52 degrees in Seattle.

Saturday is likely to be a few degrees cooler than Sunday, with high temperatures of 55 and 59 degrees, respectively, according to the service’s forecast.

Then, on Monday, Meteorologists expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 60s, the forecast shows.

Normally, the high temperature here this time of year is about 52 degrees, Michalski said.
