Drier weather will move into the Seattle area for most of the week.

Following showers early in the week, the disturbance will eventually push into the Southwest and inner Mountain West, leading to a dry out for the region, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Erik Pindrock said.

The transition to dry weather will begin on Tuesday with highs in the upper 60s and periods of clouds and sunshine.

Temperatures will break the 70 F mark on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday will be rather cloudy, but Thursday will feature times of clouds and sun.

Pindrock said another system could threaten the area with a shower on Friday, but "nothing that's going to be real heavy." Friday will see highs remain in the low 70s.

For Memorial Day weekend, temperatures will sit in the upper 60s throughout the weekend with the chance for a shower on Sunday.
