SEATTLE — Forecasters say the weather is turning hotter in Washington with temperatures this weekend in the 80s to lower 90s in Western Washington and 90s to triple digits in Eastern Washington.

The Weather Service says the temperatures in Western Washington will be moderated by morning clouds, especially on the coast.

Mostly clear skies are forecast in Eastern Washington into early next week, and the dry weather is increasing the risk of wildfires.
