November rains return but with less vengeance

Our dry spell is over -- the forecast is gloomy for the next several days

So long, cold, dry days. Hello, cold, wet days.
Rain is scheduled to return this afternoon with scattered showers continuing through the weekend.
Don't expect the torrential rains that hit the region last week, causing flooding in Everett and other local communities, said Jeff Michalski, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Seattle.
"We had a few pleasant days, but we are going back to normal," he said.
Thursday night and Saturday afternoon are expected to be the wettest days. But none of the days is expected to have more rain than just a few tenths of an inch.
People should also expect stiff winds between 20 and 30 mph, although that shouldn't cause too many problems, he said.
The rain will be a good thing for the skiing public. Several inches of fresh snow is expected to blanket Stevens Pass over the next several days, Michalski said.
Dry weather could return as early as Monday, he said.
Judi Little was taking a walk Tuesday in downtown Everett and enjoying the dry and sunny day. She was happy the clear skies lasted as long as they did.
"If we get four sunny days in a row, that's a miracle," said Little, who lives in Everett. "Especially in the fall and winter time."
Brittney Atterbury of Marysville, who was walking near Everett Community College, prefers cold weather to wet. With cold weather, people can always bundle up in warm clothes, she said.
"I think it's pretty chilly, but it's not bad," Atterbury said.
