For the first time this year, Washington State tops the Perfect Weather Index Friday. A great start for an early holiday weekend in the Pacific Northwest with widespread 9s and 10s. Seattle and Bellingham, Washington both with 10s tomorrow as well as Bend and Klamath Falls, Oregon. Overall, Washington beats out Oregon mainly due to some lingering cool air along the Idaho border of Oregon. Maine clearly on the bottom with rain and cool temperatures.

Worst: 1. Maine 2. Vermont 3. New Hampshire 4. Wyoming 5. Massachusetts
