Seattle sets twin records for warmest February, winter on record

In what will go down as one of the best -- or worst -- winters on record, depending on what you want out of a Seattle winter, now there will be some meteorological trophies to go along with the memories.

Seattle has set its record for all-time warmest February since official measurements began at Sea-Tac Airport. The average temperature (high temperature plus low temperature, divided by two) was 48.8 degrees narrowly edging 1977's record at 48.7. (And I mean narrowly. Had Saturday just been one degree cooler, it would have been a tied record instead.)

My son Keoni Bananola Lamar is 8yr old. The video is when he was 6yrs. He started doing flips on a trampoline in his grandma back yard when he was 5yr. From the first time he got on the trampoline I knew he was fearless.

As my friend and I were headed back from an adventurous day of hiking up Summit Peak and Summit Lake in the Carbon river area of the park, we came into a little clearing just in time to see a beautiful sunset on Mount Rainier and the lenticular cloud that had just formed just above it.
