Weather with Cliff Mass
Typical June weekend? Clouds, burning off late in the day
Don't expect to see much sunshine on Friday, as clouds and a weak front move through western Washington. In fact, brief episodes of drizzle are possible.
But, the sun could peak through at the end of the day, says Cliff Mass, professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington. And that reflects a typical June pattern, he says.
Saturday and Sunday will likely start with clouds, too, but that should burn off earlier in the afternoon on those days, he says.
And if you're hoping for a return to sunny skies in time for June graduation parties, Mass has bad news. Cooler temperatures and occasional showers are coming next week.
