An approaching cold front will move through the region Saturday into Sunday bringing increased winds and a chance of rain particularly in Northwest Washington and higher elevations of the Cascades. Post frontal passage, temperatures will cool but the geographic area will remain relatively dry. Significant fire potential remains at normal levels through the forecast period.
