Hi, I am planning a trip to Seattle in November to co-incide with the NFL season. I know Seattle as a reputation for amongst other things, rain, but whats the weather generally like that time of year? I really want to go up the Space Needle and all that type of thing whilst in town ut will the potentially amazing views being hidden by cloud?
Any other Seattle (and vacinity) tips, advice, things to see and places to go would be appreciated.
Seattle lives up to its reputation of being rainy... especially that time of year. I used to live there and thought it was an ok place to be. The weather is mild temperature wise and its not like its a torrential downpour every day.
Expect moderately cold mornings in November. Maybe mid to high 30s F
and the days should be high 40s to mid 50s, with the possibility of a warm streak getting into the low 60s. Expect light rain for most of the time you are there with maybe a sunny day if you're lucky.
In addition to a Seahawks game and the space needle, try to check out Pike's Market, it's a fish market with a bunch of shops around it and a big metal pig... I'll let you check it out for yourself, but it does give a nice glimpse into Seattle's own little style of life.
Thanks for taking the time to reply, its appreciated.
Sounds like its going to be a home from home trip as the weather will replicate that of England at the same time of year!
That's exactly right. Seattle weather is very comparable to Northern Ireland and the southern UK weather wise. Lots of rain and very occasional snow in the winter.
Like I said it's not so bad though. I liked that sort of weather enough to want to move England, which I am planning/hoping to do early next year.
