Eastern Washington: Sunny and hot. Highs far eastern counties in the mid 80's, with low to mid 90's elsewhere. 

DISCUSSION:

High pressure will continue to push into the state producing sunshine and very warm temperatures this weekend. Expect highs in the 80's and 90's across western Washington.

One of the features that will help produce the hot temperatures is an offshore wind flow. That will be the weather story on Saturday and most of Sunday. This kind of pattern usually means record breaking temperatures. The record for Saturday is 92 and we'll be close to that. Sunday's record is 88, so we're likely to break that one!

As the high moves to the east late Sunday, our offshore winds will switch back to onshore. That will cool high temperatures to near 80 on Monday.

Onshore winds really kick in on Tuesday and Wednesday. We should see some morning clouds and temperatures back into the upper 60's to low 70's. Temps will pop back up into the mid to upper 70's by next Thursday and Friday.

Enjoy this first weekend of summer!
