Ref question about this years lightning...We have had an above normal occurrence of weak upper level low pressure areas this spring.   These might be weak but they bring cold air aloft in which coupled with the hotter air at the surface, due to the longer days really drops the stability more than we get with monsoonal moisture. 

High pressure is along the coast.  Today through Wednesday we will have sunny skies with some afternoon clouds over the mountains.  Temperatures will continue run 5 to 10 degrees above normal and winds will be light..

Thursday and early Friday an upper level low pressure trough will move through the Pacific Northwest and Canada (see map below).  This will weaken the off shore high pressure area.   Temperatures will cool back to  near normal on Thursday and Friday with a few clouds in the far end of the state.  Gusty north winds will start late Thursday and continue through Friday.

Saturday through early next week high pressure will rebuild along the coast.  The inland areas of the north state will be clear with above normal temperatures.  The gusty north winds will continue through midday Sunday.
