.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will build over the region through Sunday.
A weak weather system will brush the area late Monday. No significant
weather systems are likely to reach the area through next week.


.SHORT TERM...The weather will be more summery through next week for
the inland portion of Western Washington with a two day warm up that
peaks in the lower to mid 80s on Monday. The coast wont get all that
warm and there will be some night and morning marine cloudiness out
there. A weak system will move through the area around Monday
afternoon or evening, so Tuesday will be a little cooler over the
inland portion of Western Washington and the morning clouds on the
coast will be thicker and should spread inland a bit further. There
is no real significant weather likely to occur, just typical early
summer weather with seasonable temps.

.LONG TERM...Models agree that light west or southwest flow aloft
will prevail through the end of the week. There will be weak to
moderate onshore seabreezes, and some marine clouds are possible on
the coast at times. Mostly this will be a period of fair weather,
with highs generally in the 70s to lower 80s and lows in the 50s to
lower 60s, but mainly mid to upper 60s on the coast.


.AVIATION...The air mass is drying and mainly skies will have only
scattered clouds, although the coast will have areas of night and
morning clouds.
