Westward ho! This forecast shouldn’t be too late in the evening for Washingtonians.
At 554PM, PT, Olympia was reporting a temperature of 71 degrees with mostly sunny skies. There was a brisk west wind off the Pacific that was helping keep temperatures around Puget Sound cool. A lobe of upper level low pressure is swinging through the Strait of Juan de Fuca, helping to encourage the blustery conditions, and even some sand storm reports inland in Washington.
The wave will rotate quickly into Alberta overnight tonight, which will help put a lid on the gusty conditions. A weak ridge will build back into the Pacific Northwest tomorrow afternoon. There will be some clouds and maybe a bit of fog, but temperatures will warm up in the evening, and be significantly warmer with a light southeasterly flow on Friday.

Depends on who you ask, but it looks like it will warm up a little bit (or quite a bit) by the end of the week. Olympia jas a nice dry window at the south end of the whirling mass northeast of Puget Sound.
