Following autumn-like weather in recent days, Saturday will be a pleasant and warmer day for Washington, as the jet stream retreats northward. Some clouds may still filter through the region, as rain potentially clips the Bellingham area. However, another front should cross the state on Sunday and Sunday night, bringing some western rain, especially to northern areas, along with eastern wind and blowing dust. Next week, drier and slightly cooler weather is expected through mid week. Eastern areas are likely to warm again around mid to late next week, although a storm could approach Washington late in the period.

  • Pleasant on Saturday, and warmer in the east on Sunday.
  • Slightly cooler early next week, and then warming in the east by mid week.
