On the first day of spring quarter, Western Washington University students Emma Raivio and Jess Kirsch relaxed in a hammock underneath the boardwalk at sunny Boulevard Park in Bellingham Tuesday, March 29, 2016. Kirsch called the hammock their “portable couch.”
More of the same kind of weather could be in store this week - sunny skies are forecast through the weekend, with high temperatures in the low to mid-60s. Overnight lows will be in the mid-40s.
Josh Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle, said forecasters have favorable extended climate models for the week of spring break, starting Friday, April 1, and for a week to 10 days after that.
