Great weekend in store with sunshine

Today’s afternoon featuring mainly sunny skies and highs in the 70s in most spots will be nearly identically repeated on Saturday. Highs will be in the mid 70s across the south Sound and 80s east of the Cascades.

On Sunday, northerly flow will increase a bit and it becomes a little breezy late. This will keep temperatures down into the 60s in most spots – the coolest day of the next week or more.

We’ll warm back to the low to mid 70s on Monday with some breezes around which could cause heightened fire danger in the lowlands.

The warmest days look to be Tuesday and Wednesday with 80s from Seattle south and some 70s elsewhere. No extreme heat for most, and temperatures will come down just a bit later next week. There are some signs that slight chances of light showers could be around sometime in the 8-10 day time frame, but likely little moisture of note. Fire danger will increase.

The prospect is for a warmer and drier June than average.
