MORE WEATHER DETAILS:

SEATTLE (AP) - Dry weather is forecast for the Fourth of July across Washington with a risk of wildfires in Eastern Washington.
    
The National Weather Service says morning clouds Thursday should give way to clear skies in the afternoon in Western Washington with high temperatures in the 70s. That pattern is expected through the weekend.
    
Forecasters say Eastern Washington will be sunny with highs in the 80s and 90s. Heat, low humidity and possible winds led the Weather Service to issue a red flag warning for wildfires. The warning is in effect from noon Wednesday to 10 p.m. Thursday in an area that includes Wenatchee, Yakima, Tri-Cities, Moses Lake and Walla Walla.
    
Forecasters expect sunny skies with highs in the 80s and 90s through the weekend in Eastern Washington.
