Today's Forecast

Updated Tuesday 6:35 a.m.

Good Morning and welcome to another sunny and warm day!

We're looking at another round of mid to upper 80s across the region as high pressure continues to dominate the weather maps. In fact, the forecast for the next seven days features nearly identical conditions: Pretty much full sunny days and clear nights across much of the Interior. Coastal communities will have a few more morning clouds -- but they'll burn off through the day. 

Long range models show perhaps a little cooling next week as the marine breezes bump up a bit, but nothing significant is on the horizon.

Enjoy and stay cool!

Weather 5 years ago today, Seattle baked like it never had before (New) 5 years ago today, Seattle baked like it never had before (Video)
Those of you who were around here 5 years ago today were likely trying to find some place -- any place -- for relief from the heat.

July 29, 2009 remains the hottest day ever recorded in modern Seattle history, be it Sea-Tac Airport or the Downtown Federal Building, with a reading of 103 degrees. Some spots, like Boeing Field and the NOAA station at Sand Point, were even hotter, reaching 105 degrees. Everett hit 100, Bellingham hit 96, and Vancouver, WA took the heat prize with a 108 degree reading!

For much of late winter and spring, the message has been the same by NOAA's Climate Prediction Center: Expect a warmer than normal summer.

So far, July is delivering, with several days of 80s and 90s around the Pacific Northwest, and even a few triple digit days east of the Cascades. Seattle is just one spot in the region, but it's a whopping 3.0 degrees above normal so far and through Sunday, is tied for the third-hottest July on record at Sea-Tac Airport (Average temperpature (high+low/2) so far: 68.6° -- record is 69.5° in 2009; 2nd is 68.8°.)

And the forecast for this week brings a return of more warm-to-hot weather to finish off the month and potentially cement the month as 2nd warmest on record.

So what about August? Those same long-range forecasts suggest more of the same. And September. And October. And November. And...see a theme developing?
Weather By the numbers: Wednesday's record rainfall (Video)
After the first three weeks of July began generally sunny and warm-to-hot, things changed in a hurry on July 23rd as a potent storm rolled through Western Washington, bringing a record amount of rainfall to the Puget Sound region.

Here are some of the statistics from the storm:
