Today’s stormy weather is expected to continue through the night but then let up for a rain-free Labor Day weekend.
After a possible thunderstorm tonight with winds as high as 22 mph, the National Weather Service projects, Friday will be cloudy with a high near 72.
The NWS says it will be sunny Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 70s — 79 and 78 degrees, respectively. Monday will be a little cooler, around 74, and cloudy, the forecast says.
The evenings are expected to be dry, too. Friday night should be partly cloudy with a low around 57 degrees; Saturday night should be mostly clear with a low around 59; and Sunday and Monday night will be mostly cloudy with lows around 59 degrees, the weather service says.

The Lady Washington, the state’s official ship, is viewed from the Aurora Bridge as it arrives Monday in Lake Union, en route to the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland, where it will be docked for Labor Day-weekend activities.
The ship, based in Aberdeen, will be available for tours from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday while moored at Marina Park (25 Lake Shore Plaza, Kirkland). The ship accommodates 60 to 100 visitors an hour, and complimentary half-hour tours.
There also will be two free sailings. The first is an educational sail from 9 a.m. to noon, where children can learn about life at sea and basic navigation skills. A second sail, from 6 to 8 p.m., will allow visitors to participate in ship operations, from raising the sails to taking the helm. Mock battles and Lake Washington tours also will be offered at the Woodmark this weekend.
