Right now, weather in Seattle is a bit fickle. All signs indicate spring – flowers are blooming everywhere and green buds grace tree limbs. But we’ve had back-to-back days of 60-degree weather and snow within the past week. Seattleites are used to unpredictable weather, so at this point of seasonal limbo, we’re mostly grateful for a few extra hours of sunlight. When I go out in Seattle this time of year, I make sure I’m ready for anything Mother Nature wants to throw my way. It’s not uncommon to find me with a hat or hood, sunglasses and a waterproof layer in my possession until I’m positive that spring has committed to stay. It’s definitely dryer during these spring months and skies aren’t quite so gray, but the key to Seattle success in the spring is to be prepared for sudden weather swings.
