SEATTLE (AP/CBS Seattle) — It’s a local saying that couldn’t be any more true this year: “Summer starts after the Fourth of July in Seattle.”
After one more band of rain showers moves through Western Washington Monday night and Tuesday morning, forecasters say clouds should give way on Wednesday in time for mostly clear skies for fireworks.
The National Weather Service says sunshine and normal high temperatures in the 70s should last through the weekend and the long-range forecast is for more of the same into mid-July.
If you’re weekend starts on Tuesday night, make sure you get out the sunscreen for the rest of the weekend!
