Weak weather systems moving through the Pacific Northwest will bring cloudy conditions and possible drizzle and light showers through Wednesday.

Some metro locations could have sprinkles or drizzle early Tuesday, followed by chances for light rain in the afternoon. High temperatures will be cool for the final day of June, with highs only expected to reach 69 degrees.

Early morning satellite images show heavy clouds into the Seattle area, and plenty of clouds with possible rain for Portland.

The National Weather Service says Wednesday also comes with chances for drizzle and then showers under mostly cloudy skies. Marine clouds will continue to rotate through southwest Washington and northwest Oregon. Temperatures will be 10-15 degrees below average with highs topping out around 67.

Onshore flow weakens Thursday shifting remaining chances for morning drizzle to the north of the metro area. Portland should start to see some drying out by lunchtime. The afternoon is expected to be partly sunny with highs moving back up into the mid 70s. The forecasted high for the airport is 74.

An extended look into the July 4th holiday weekend shows mostly sunny skies and seasonal temps in the 70s.
