It’s time to get out the sunscreen and summer clothes.

Well, it's complicated.

The forecast for our long holiday weekend starts wet, then dries out, then gets downright motley as we move into prime barbecue territory.

The weekend curse is back, according to KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

After a week of unseasonably warm and dry weather, reaching up into the 80s more than once, temperatures are set to drop about 10 degrees on Friday, and step down another 10 or so over the weekend.

“First things first,” said KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass. “For Mother’s Day, it looks good.”

Mass predicts sunny skies and temperatures of at least 70 “and maybe even into the low 70s” for Sunday.

But before then, there’s some rain to get through.

It seems the curse of the wet weekend is upon us again.

This week's unseasonably hot transition from April to May is giving way to much cooler temps and heavy rain on Saturday and Sunday, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

It comes on the heels of a gloriously sunny and hot work week.

Don’t put your parkas away just yet. 

It’s classic April weather this weekend with lots of showers but plenty of sunbreaks, too, according to KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass. 

Saturday, in particular, is going to be nice, says Mass, who teaches atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington.

If you’re planning any outdoor fun this weekend, Sunday’s your best bet, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

The famous Puget Sound convergence zone has been dumping rain in the greater Seattle area, with some places in the foothills of the cascades getting as much as 4 inches in the space of just six hours on Thursday afternoon. Mass, who teaches atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington, says there will be a break from that today, but not for too long.

Get out your shades and sunscreen: this weekend promises to be mild and very sunny, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

“It’s gonna be quite good,” said Mass, professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington.

This weekend's rain caused parts of western Washington to see the wettest March on record as was predicted by KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass

"My lawn has turned into a carpet of moss and my deck is now green," Mass said on Sunday.

Friday's steady rain is contributing to what may become a record-breaking March for total rainfall in many places in the Northwest.

KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass says a wet front is coming through western Washington.

Spring has officially arrived, but warmer temperatures have not. Those warmer days lie ahead, but first we’ll have to get through a cool and wet weekend, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

Just when you thought spring had arrived in the Pacific Northwest, winds and wet weather are sweeping in.

We're in for another wet weekend, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass — but not without sun breaks.

After a record-breaking week of strong rain, Friday will bring a bit of reprieve. But the rain will return this weekend, even in the mountains, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

Still, there is good news: come next week, we’ll start transitioning into spring.

Soak in Friday’s sun and spring-like temperatures while you can, because they won’t stick around this weekend, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.

Mass says snow is once again in the forecast for parts of western Washington.
