We're wrapping up a long holiday weekend. The weather was sub-optimal and the clouds were unyielding, but at least it stayed mostly warm and mostly dry. The clouds are going to stay put as the Memorial Day barbecues finish up this evening. It will stay dry and mild through the night (mid 50s).
A very pesky low pressure system which is responsible for the gray weekend is finally on its way out. As its influence on our weather diminishes, sunshine will return with full force by the middle of this week.
The clouds will stick around as the sun rises tomorrow, and you'll be heading back to work or school in mild (mid 50s) temperatures. The low clouds will melt away as the day progresses, and we'll break into partly sunny territory by the afternoon.
The clouds will dissipate in the Cascades as well. However, due to some residual moisture left in the skies, a few showers are possible along the Cascade crest throughout the day. Any precipitation that does form will certainly be rain, as the snow level is way up near 9,000 ft.
Partly sunny skies and showers will be scattered across Eastern Washington Tuesday. It will be warm in the southern portion near Yakima and the Tri-Cities (low 80s).
A warm and sunny pattern takes hold after tomorrow, which will extend into the beginning of next weekend. Wednesday will be the first day to break into the 70s. Thursday has the potential to be the warmest day, with unimpeded sunshine. Clouds will start to filter back into the region on Friday.
Next weekend may contain some clouding, but comfortable temperatures also.
Have a great night!
