A final push of cold, dry air is expected on Saturday morning, especially for areas east of the Cascades. However, a ridge of high pressure will build into Washington thereafter, and allow for moderating temperatures, especially in the mountains. The warm up may be slower in the lowlands, as conditions become increasingly stable.

Dry weather should continue early next week, before a few weak disturbances renew the threat for light rain in western areas beginning around mid week. Otherwise, temperatures should approach and eventually surpass normal levels later next week.
