SEATTLE (AP) — Forecasters say the warm, dry weather continues in Washington, at least a couple more days.
Sunny skies with highs in the 80s are forecast Friday and Saturday in Western Washington. The National Weather Service says clouds move in Sunday with a chance of rain Sunday night.
That could end a dry streak in the Seattle area. The last measurable precipitation at Sea-Tac Airport was July 22. The record dry stretch of 51 days, set in 1951, would be tied on Tuesday if the rain holds off.
The Eastern Washington forecast calls for highs in the 80s through the weekend with a slight chance of thunderstorms on Sunday. A cold front Monday will bring winds up to 30 mph. That means blowing dust and higher wildfire danger.
