Some general info about the Seattle weather in October...well...someone once said, "If you don't like the weather in Seattle, just wait a few minutes...it'll change."

The usual weather for the Festival is  commonly clear, occasionally warm, and typically pretty darned nice.

It may be helpful in your planning to check below for Today's Weather for Seattle, Washington, as your visit to the Festa Italiana Seattle gets near, along with checking other weather forecasts on television and radio and in newspapers (and we all know that the best guess can sometimes be just making your own "best guess" based on whatever you find works for you).
