Seattle is one huge sunburn waiting to happen.
Sunny skies and warm temperatures are expected to grace the area this weekend as throngs of people attend a multitude of outdoor events. The National Weather Service is predicting highs will edge into the mid-80s today and the low 90s tomorrow.
That's great news for the area's annual pigout, the Bite of Seattle, as well as Seafair attractions and a number of other events planned today and tomorrow.
The Bite, which features myriad restaurant samples, from chicken gyros to crawfish spiced Cajun-style, will open at 11 a.m. at the Seattle Center both today and tomorrow.
Seafair is kicking off its three-week run with a series of offerings - a fashion show, an inner-tube race, bicycle and milk-carton races, and district and city festivals.
Tomorrow at 11 a.m., the International District will hold its annual festival. Metro officially opens the International District bus-tunnel station to kick off the event.
It seems about the only thing you won't find in Seattle this weekend is one of its most famous commodities - rain.
