The National Weather Service says a weak front moving across Washington is bringing some light rain to Western Washington and a chance of showers Friday and Saturday in Western and Eastern Washington.
That being said, forecasters expect dry skies and seasonal temperatures to return next week.
After a long stretch of hot, dry conditions, University of Washington Atmospheric Sciences Professor Cliff Mass says the front is the first sign of a seasonal shift to autumn weather.
Mass blogs that precipitation typically increases in the second or third week of August. There’s plenty of summer left, but a shift in the Northwest weather pattern is evident.

A rather clear morning in October can make for some spectacular sunrises and Seattle Times photographer Mike Siegel was out early today to snap this beautiful one.
But by 10 a.m., the skies were Autumn gray and this afternoon we could have some rain. Looking at the forecast for tomorrow, there could be sun and there’s little chance of rain. That then means another chance for a beautiful sunrise. Keep your eyes peeled, but don’t do it while you’re driving.
The days are getting shorter, of course: Sunrise today: 7:45 a.m.; Sunset tonight: 5:59 p.m. Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, Nov. 6, at 2 a.m.
We’re sure you noticed how cold it was this morning. The temperature dipped to 37 degrees. That shouldn’t be the case tomorrow morning with a low in the 40s. And you’ve probably noticed that the highs aren’t getting out of the 50s either. Thank your lucky stars, though. In Yakima, the temperature overnight dropped to 27 degrees.
