The Best Time To Visit Seattle
The best time to visit Seattle is between June-August – the dryest and warmest months. Rainfall is heaviest between January-May and October-December. Wear layers so you can be prepared for any type of weather… and don’t forget to pack your umbrella.
Due to contrary opinion, Seattle does not have the highest rainfall in the nation – it’s just that it can be drizzly and overcast for nine months of the year! What’s nice about the area, is that it is never really hot in the summer or cold in the winter.
