Drying out starting Monday

Our rather active weather weekend is starting to wrap up with a few dying thundershowers in Lewis County, sinking south into tonight and fading. Lightning activity in these cells across the far south has diminished and while there could be another lightning strike or two in these areas the next few hours, we will be pretty quiet overnight.

There will be a little light rain or drizzle across parts of the area overnight, though by daybreak, coverage of rainfall will be pretty limited. Through the day, we’ll have a mix of clouds and sun for Monday with highs in the 60s. Still cooler than average by five degrees or more. A stray shower cannot be ruled out.

High pressure aloft builds over the area for the remainder of the week starting Tuesday with more sunshine and warming temperatures. Highs could touch 70 in Seattle Tuesday with 70s to near 80 on Wednesday through Friday with lots of sunshine. The summer solstice on Thursday occurs at 1:50 p.m. local time with plenty of sun and Seattle highs around 80.

Clouds will increase over the weekend but Saturday still looks quite nice with highs in the 70s. Highs could drop to the 60s or lower 70s by Sunday with a slight chance of showers.
