Renton's rain brings Purple Haze to Washington State

The Pacific Northwest region has a reputation for rain and in fall, locals joke that Renton should be named Rainton. The most popular season to visit the city is summer, between June and August, when the days are sunny and temperatures reach 80 degrees. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are much quieter, and while the temperatures are a comfortable 60-70 degrees, the city does experience higher rainfall than most. The low season is winter, when the cold and damp sets in, and snow is a frequent visitor, so pack wisely.
