If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass said he is is staring at a virtual 10.
"The weather will be as close to perfect as you can imagine," Mass said Friday. "No precipitation for anybody. Full sun for virtually everyone."
The temperature on Friday will hit the middle to upper 70s, Mass said. Saturday will get warmer still with the heat pushing into the low 80s for Western Washington. Sunday will be more of the same.
While warm, the weather isn't in full-hot mode, Mass said. The high pressure system off-shore will remain stable through the early part of the week with light winds picking up around 3 p.m.
Northwest weather will return from it's vacation late in the week with some rain and clouds.
Mass said what we are seeing is a strong El Nino effect that will continue through winter.
