We know the question on your mind, Seattleites — when’s it going to get warm again?

Thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, we know what temperatures and precipitation trends to expect in our city for March, April, and May. While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for what spring will bring.

A map of the United States shows that temperatures are 60 to 70 percent likely to be warmer than usual in the Pacific Northwest. There is no place on the map where temperatures are expected to be lower than average.

Based on this map, it definitely looks like you’ll be able to put your sweater away a little more quickly this year.

🌡 Temperature

Think warm. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Climate Prediction Center, we have a 60-70% chance of temperatures being higher than normal.

🌧 Precipitation

Expect slightly less precipitation. Seattle has a 33-40% chance of seeing below normal rainfall amounts this spring.

🗓 By the month: March

March should finally be when we start to see a little more warmth, with high temps averaging ~52° and lows of ~42°. It may still be a bit chilly, but definitely toastier than February’s 46°/35° averages. The other big news here is that Sun., March 12 (also the beginning of daylight saving time) will be our first sunset of the year after 7 p.m. Pop some bubbly, you made it.

🗓 By the month: April

It’s probably safe to put those big puffers away now, but leave the sweaters out. Average high temps in April could land at ~57° with lows of ~45°.

🗓 By the month: May

Miss that Vitamin D? Spring is in full force as our average high temperature will likely move up to 63° and our low should tag along at 50°. Sunsets are securely stationed after 8 p.m. at this point. All things to look forward to.
