STEVE RINGMAN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Pedestrians cross Fourth Avenue in downtown Seattle on a Friday afternoon dark with heavy rain. Wet weather has returned, and though we'll avoid the snow and freezing rain forecast for much of the state this weekend, the Puget Sound area will be wet and windy, according to the National Weather Service. Showers are likely Saturday evening, with a low around 40 degrees. More rain Sunday, with highs in the upper 40s and winds to 20 mph. As for next week, when 46 million Americans are expected to travel for Thanksgiving, we'll see a chance of rain every day with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees. There's a chance of rain and snow showers on the west slopes and mountain passes. Then on Thanksgiving Day, the snow level is expected to be 3,500 feet.

Marianne Hale, of Seattle, left, styles a fifties-themed outfit for model Makaela Bielaski, of Redmond, for the Value Village and Eco Fashion Week fashion show at AXIS Pioneer Square in Seattle, Thursday November 20, 2014. Eco Fashion Week is rooted in Vancouver and this is the first time they have done a fashion show in Seattle. Value Village partnered with Eco Fashion Week to provide the materials for two different runway shows - the 68-pound challenge and the thrift chic fashion collection. For the 68-pound challenge, two designers created runway shows using 68 pounds of discarded textiles, which represents the amount of textiles an average North American throws away each year. The thrift chic collection, which Hale participated in, allows each designer $500 in fashions at Value Village to create a runway show of ten outfits.
