Summer vacation's clock might be ticking down toward its end but while signs everywhere trumpet "Back to School", in the weather realm it's more like "Back to Normal."
A rather pleasant stretch of weather is expected to continue for the next several days, with variances in the duration of morning clouds the only real tweak to each day's forecast.
Tonight will be mostly clear early but some morning clouds will be around by dawn with lows in the mid 50s.
The marine clouds will be around early Friday but should burn off even quicker than today -- call it mid to late morning. There will be some unstable air around to bring some cloud buildups over the mountains and a few showers are possible up there, but the lowlands now look to stay dry. Highs will rise a bit to the mid 70s.
The weekend is still looking very Seattle summer-esque-- mostly sunny and warm, but not too hot with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. It's the second-to-last weekend of summer vacation, but considering what the long range models are hinting, you might want to get you last summer fling done now.
No worries as we get into next week- - we hold steady with sunshine and near 80 for Monday then perhaps bump up into the low-mid 80s for the middle of next week. But long range models are at least toying with the idea of cooler weather toward the end of the week and the super long range models -- while admittedly way out there still in the time frame -- are hinting at perhaps a chance of showers as we get into the latter half of Labor Day Weekend. It's still early, but we'll keep an eye on it.
