Washington ending year with drier weather


SEATTLE (AP) — After recent rain and snow storms, forecasters say Washington will end the year with drier weather.

About the only rain Friday is forecast on the coast.

The National Weather Service expects only scattered rain showers in most of the state or light snow in northeast Washington on Saturday. Sunday should be a dry day with sun at times.

Cloudy skies return Monday with a chance of showers, but forecasters say the new year should start with relatively uneventful weather.
