Yes, that was rain – or at least drizzle – you saw on your windshield this morning, particularly in North King and South Snohomish counties.

But don’t worry about rain spoiling your summer fun.  The sprinkle this morning is the last moisture we should see for a while. A warm, dry weekend is forecast, with high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s — and rising early next week.

Johnny Burg, National Weather Service meteorologist, said this morning’s light rain amounted to just a  trace. The last measurable amount of rain at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport was the 0.14 inches that fell June 27.

Looking a month out, the Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center expects Western Washington to have above-normal temperatures and below-average rainfall.
