Summer in Seattle starts July 5, right?

That’s the adage, at least. For the rest of this week, the Seattle area can expect highs in the low 70s with some rain midweek.

So while you won’t be shivering in the coming days, you likely won’t find yourself relaxing on a hot, dry Seattle beach, either.

Wednesday will be cloudier than Tuesday, said Matthew Cullen, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Temperatures will remain around the same as Tuesday, with the forecast high in the low 70s. A slight chance of showers is expected Thursday during the day and night.

On Friday and Saturday, skies are expected to mostly be sunny with clouds.

“We’re hitting our stride with a little bit drier, a little bit more consistent pattern for the next seven days,” Cullen said.
