Western Washington forecast

Sunshine and warm Saturday, but wet weather returns on Sunday. Wet at times next week and much cooler.

PUGET SOUND FORECAST:

High clouds will cross the sky in the evening, otherwise mostly clear skies overnight. Lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Winds north to 10 mph, becoming light. 

DISCUSSION:

Sunshine and warm temperatures are only here one more day. Saturday afternoon may hit some upper 70s to near 80. Clouds will increase late Saturday as a front approaches Washington state.

Rain will move into the coast early Sunday morning, into Bellingham by around midday, and spread southward through Puget Sound during the afternoon. Highs will cool to the 60s. Expect breezy to gusty wind late Sunday night into early Monday as rain increases with a new front approaching early.

A stronger cold front will move through Puget Sound Monday, late morning, changing the steady rain to off-and-on showers. There will be a chance of a few thunderstorms as the front moves through.

Cool, unstable air will move into western Washington Monday night and Tuesday for more showers and a chance of thunderstorms again. Snow levels will fall near 5,000 feet for high mountain snow. Highs in the upper 50s and low 60s both days.

Wednesday, after a few early morning showers, shapes up to stay partly sunny and dry. Thursday another front increases rain and breezy wind in the morning, changing to afternoon showers and continued cool.
