SEATTLE —

Forecasters say the second-driest start to May on record in Seattle will end in time for rain on Mother's Day.

National Weather Service meteorologist Dana Felton says Saturday will likely be the final dry day in a stretch that began April 30. He says 11 dry days at the beginning of May is the second-longest since 1946 when it didn't rain until May 24.

Oddly, the dry spell follows the second-wettest April on record in Seattle.

The rain returns late Saturday to Western Washington as a front moves through. Eastern Washington will likely see showers and a chance of thunderstorms.

High temperatures will cool off from the 80s Friday in Western Washington to the more-normal 60s next week. In Eastern Washington, high temperatures are expected to remain in the 80s.
