Mt Rainier Recreational Forecast Mount Rainier Recreational Forecast
National Weather Service Seattle WA

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure aloft will weaken and shift eastward
today. The first of a series of frontal systems will approach the
region Saturday night with rain spreading inland on Sunday, with

expected by the middle of next week.
