The summer-like pattern of warm and dry weather will persist this weekend, as high pressure continues to dominate the weather. Sunny and hot conditions are expected in eastern Washington, while western areas will be mild and mostly sunny by day, with areas of marine stratus, especially at the coast, by night.

Changes commence next week, as cooler air slowly invades the region, although conditions may be quite variable during the period. Right now, it appears that a dry cold front will usher in breezes and slightly cooler air by Tuesday. Thereafter, a stronger upper low should approach the coast around mid to late week. As the air flow becomes southerly, brief warming is possible in the east. By late next week, however, the upper low should move inland, which would cause lowering day-time temperatures statewide, along with increasing clouds and winds, and a good chance of showers.
