Warmest weekend of year forecast in Washington

SEATTLE (AP) - Forecasters say Washington is in for the warmest weekend of the year so far.

Sunny skies will push the highs into the 80s on both sides of the state.

The National Weather Service says temperatures should ease next week but the dry weather will continue for several more days.

Forecasters, emergency responders, and parks and recreation officials are warning people to take care if they head out onto the water. Boating fatalities increase with warm weather in the spring when waters are still frigid.
