Western Washington forecast

Sunshine and warm temperatures today and Friday. Much cooler and wetter weather this weekend.

Puget Sound Forecast:  Partly to mostly sunny . Highs rebounding back into the mid 70s to near 80. North wind 5 to 15 mph.

DISCUSSION:

We're expecting this stretch of summer-like weather to continue the rest of the workweek, with highs in the mid 70s to near 80, and abundant sunshine.

Keep in mind it will be much cooler along the coast, with temps falling back into the 60s by Thursday.

On Saturday, a weather system will move along the coast spreading increasing clouds into the state early in the day, and rain spreading in during the afternoon hours. We could see a round of thunderstorms in the mountains and eastern Washington. High temperatures will drop back to the upper 60s to low 70s. 

The system moves right on through, and showers should wrap up early Sunday. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 60s. 

Right now, it looks like we will be well away from any weather systems the first part of next week for partly sunny skies and highs rebounding to the upper 60s to low 70s.
