After a bit of a heatwave, cooler weather and some showers are in the forecast for the rest of the week in the Puget Sound lowlands, says the National Weather Service in Seattle.
Temperatures will be in the lower 70s during daytime hours, and some rain or drizzle is forecast for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Lows will be in the upper 50s.
The sun is likely to peak out at times in the afternoons, the Weather Service said.
Warmer temperatures and sunnier weather will return over the weekend, and hot weather is expected again by Monday or Tuesday.
