Spring's rapidly approaching, and we're already starting to see some beautiful days of sunshine. So the question is: where can Washington expect to see the most sunshine?

Seattle and Issaquah get a bad rep for being the rainiest cities in the state, but at least the locals and tourists know that Seattle gets more sunshine than places like Tokyo, Milan, and Paris. Which city in Washington gets the most sunshine? Perhaps we should say, cities, plural, because these are the 10 most sunniest cities in WA.
