On Saturday, the long-running streak of warm days is expected to come to an end with a predicted high of 64 degrees and a 40 percent chance of  light rain, according to Andy Haner, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle.

Friday’s predicted high of 71 degrees is expected to be the last of 71 consecutive days with a high temperature at or above 70 degrees, he said.

“In a typical year we will get one stretch of 25 consecutive days with high temperatures at or above 70 degrees,” Haner said. “In second place, the stretch was only for 62 days, so we have exceeded that record by a long shot — nine days.”

Also ending on Friday will be the warm overnight temperatures that has made sleeping difficult for many, he said.

The overnight low temperature Friday is expected to reach 57 degrees, breaking the seven-day stretch of overnight lows that remained at 60 degrees or above.

There’s a 30 percent chance of showers for some Puget Sound areas on Friday and a 40 percent chance of rain on Saturday, Haner said.

]ut the rain, which is expected to be light, measuring 3/100th of an inch at best, will skip some areas, he said.

On Sunday, a new warming trend could begin, and while there could be a few clouds in the morning, once those clear, it’s likely to be a “glorious September day” with moderate breezes and a high of 74 degrees, he said.

Haner said that while it could look a slightly hazy and smokey on Friday, a marine layer of air moved in from the west overnight, clearing much of the lingering wildfire haze.

Air quality in some areas west and north of Seattle, such as Whidbey Island, Anacortes, Marysville and Bremerton, reported having good air quality on Friday morning.
