After a blazing heat wave, Seattle's temperatures will dip with showers and clouds to follow into early this week.

"An onshore flow and a few dips in the jetstream will keep Seattle unsettled with near to slightly below-normal temperatures over the coming days," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.

By midweek, temperatures will drop even more to the upper 60s.
