Endless summer is over: Cold, wet coming to Northwest

The Associated Press

Tuesday may be the last day of summer-like weather across the Northwest. The National Weather Service says the change to the fall pattern will occur this week with cooler temperatures and increasing rain.

Many areas saw the summer pattern ending in a blaze of sunshine Monday with some record temperatures. The 78 at Sea-Tac Airport tied the 1952 records. Other records in Washington were 90 at Wenatchee, 88 at Ephrata and 85 at Omak.

Temperatures also were in the 80s in Oregon. But they won’t last.

Forecasters say an onshore flow Wednesday will lower temperatures Thursday with a stronger Pacific system bring rain by Friday and into the weekend.
