A hot and summer-like final weekend of the spring season is on the way, as we prepare to say goodbye to May. Some areas east of the Cascades should soar above 90 degrees under partly sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday. However, significant changes are expected for Sunday night and Monday, as low pressure approaches Washington. Increasing moisture will lead to an elevated chance of showers or isolated thunderstorms through the middle of next week. Later on Monday, breezy winds should usher in cooler conditions and welcome heat relief. Overall, calmer conditions are likely later next week, as slightly warmer and drier weather makes a comeback.
