Unseasonably dry weather continues to hang around

SEATTLE -- A weak front well north of us in central British Columbia is helping to pull in the marine layer clouds inland today-- at least for the morning. This is nature's air conditioning keeping us from getting too hot. The dominant feature in the weather is the ridge of high pressure that's keeping our June unseasonably dry. Today will be day 9 without measurable precipitation and there really isn't any expected for the forseeable future.

TODAY has morning clouds with nice afternoon sunshine. The exception will be the coast where they'll be in the clouds and possible drizzle all day long. High temperatures a touch cooler than yesterday for most of the region. Expect 65-75 for just about everyone along the I-5 corridor. Tonight overnight lows in the 50s.

TOMORROW still has morning clouds and nice afternoon sunshine. We'll still see temperatures around 70 degrees west of the Cascades. Cooler and more clouds for the Coast.

THE REST OF THE WEEK looks quite nice. Continued dry weather expected through the weekend. There is a slight chance of a few afternoon showers Sunday north of Seattle. High temperatures mostly in the 70-75 range.
