Friday will be much cooler than yesterday (a good 12-18 degrees in many cases) with lots of clouds and spotty showers popping up.

Showers will be most prevalent in the Cascades, Coast and Coast Range, but rainfall amounts will be fairly light. 

Saturday brings more frequent showers and very cool weather to the mountains. 

The snow level could dip as low as 4,500 feet, and thunderstorms are possible Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons in the Cascades.

But the weather begins to warm up and dry out Sunday, with the valleys seeing the return of 70-degree temperatures.

Monday looks like the warmest and driest day of the holiday weekend, with highs in the upper 70s and lots of sun.

Dry and warm weather continues for most of next  week.

Have a great weekend.
