You might have been beginning to question if summertime in Seattle will be over.
Thanks to what is most likely the season’s greatest high-pressure ridge camped over the Puget Sound area, temperatures are anticipated to climb into the mid- and upper 80s starting Thursday, said meteorologist Dana Felton of the National Weather Condition Service in Seattle.
Thursday is anticipated to strike about 83 degrees, which is 10 degrees above our normal temperature for this time of year, and Friday will be warmer, Felton said.
Saturday will likely be a little cooler, perhaps by 5 degrees, he stated, but it will be hot. Then, things might heat up once again as an easterly wind carries the baking heat of the interior to the coast.
By Tuesday, temperature levels are anticipated to reach 88 degrees, which would be a record for that date, Felton said. Wednesday’s high of 89 degrees would connect the everyday record, Felton stated.
This is bad news for wildfires, Felton stated.
But maybe good news for folks who wanted to soak up a bit more sunlight prior to we settle into the cold, wet, dark of our rainy season.
