We're turning mostly cloudy and cooler across the Pacific Northwest today. An area low off the coast of B.C. is causing the flow over the region to become SW, resulting in moisture and instability to push north into the region.
Highs will range from the upper 70s to lower 90s.
Although the rain and cooler temperatures will bring a little relief to firefighters today, fire danger remains high in areas east of the Cascades.
Stormy weather including brief downpours, gusty winds, hail and thunderstorms with frequent lightning could lead to new fire starts. Red flag warnings remain in effect through Wednesday with continued stormy weather.
Showers will linger into Thursday morning, and then a return to summer sunshine and heat Thursday afternoon through the weekend.
Make it a Great Tuesday!
