Climate :

Washington's climate varies greatly from west to east. The west is mild and humid, while east of the Cascades a cooler dry climate prevails. The average annual temperature ranges from 51 degrees on the Pacific coast to 40 degrees in the northeast. The climate in western Washington is mild because of the warm currents coming off of the North Pacific. This area has frequent cloud cover, considerable fog, and long-lasting drizzles. Summer is much sunnier, yet still mild. Average high temperatures here approach 70 degrees. The western side of the Olympic Peninsula receives up to 160 inches of precipitation annually, making it the wettest area of the 48 continental states. Weeks or even months may pass without a clear day. Portions of the Puget Sound area, on the eastern side of the Olympic Mountains, are less wet, although still humid. The western slopes of the Cascade Range receive some of the heaviest annual snowfall in the country (over 200 inches annually).
