It may be a clear fall night, but brace for a chilly fall morning Thursday.
KING 5 Futurecast models show early morning temperatures dropping in the 40s around most of Western Washington, with areas of the South Sound and Southwest Interior dropping into the 30s.
"Places like Tacoma, Olympia and northwest of Olympia near Shelton will drop into the upper 30s, but they'll rebound nicely into the 60s tomorrow afternoon with mostly sunny conditions," said KING 5 Meteorologist Jim Guy. "We also may have to deal with some patchy fog as well."

With a sunny and clear outlook for Thursday, most of those low temps will quickly warm up back into the low to mid 60s later in the day. But Guy warns, "enjoy the dry weather and sun because it won't last long."
A front moving in off the Pacific will increase our chances for rain on Friday.

"Here comes the weekend, and let me tell you, it's gonna get wet," said Guy. "A number of fronts will be coming through. It will be rainy and breezy Saturday and Sunday with temperatures in the low 60s."
The rain will continue through the first of next week, likely prompting officials to keep a close eye on rising rivers off the Olympics and north Cascades.
