Generally speaking, the coast in the PNW, west of the Cascades, is soggy. I dated someone in Snohomish for a while, and one summer they had 122 days in a row of solid overcast and varying degrees of rain. Was really nice to come back to the dry side.
Might want to factor that in your plans, and realize that if you get to Seattle or Portland and is gray and raining, it's normal. East of the Cascades we average 300-330 days of sunshine a year.

That hasn't happened in the 18 years I've lived here... Winter yes, but not summer. We have definitely seen winters with that many consecutive cloudy/rainy days, but in the summer (counting summer as early July to mid/late September) it is rare to get more than 2-3 days of consecutive rain, and also rare to get a total of more than 10 rainy days in that 2 month period.

But the other 10 months out of the year, yeah soggy is a pretty accurate description...

Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

Just one of the many beautiful winter days I have spent at the coast over the years.

You just never know.
