November through March bring the most rain to the Emerald City. Even then, the coldest month stays in the low 30s. Most storms are not torrential and the city is known for the slow drizzle and light rain. A waterproof jacket and umbrella should do the trick.
Though the stereotypes of Seattle portray it as permanently drizzly and overcast, on average, the city actually receives less annual precipitation than many other American cities, including much of the East Coast. That said, you should expect to encounter some rain, especially during the winter, but this helps keep temperatures moderate year-round. Mild, breezy summers are the perfect time to visit.
