SEATTLE (AP) -- The National Weather Service says Washington is in for one of the hottest stretches of summer this week.

Forecasters say high temperatures will be in the 80s in Western Washington and 90s in Eastern Washington.

Forecasters say a high pressure system causing the warm sunny weather is likely to last through next weekend.

The long stretch of hot dry weather will increase the wildfire danger.
