With a late surge of warm air Thursday, Seattle managed to reach 80 degrees again -- the 12th day in a row with highs at 80 or warmer.

It's the second-longest such streak at Sea-Tac Airport, tying a streak in August of 1967 and coming up three days short of the all time record of 15 set in 1977.

So how to celebrate 12 days of 80s? Sing along with me:

On the 12th Day of 80s, my true love gave to me:

12 Drumsticks Melting
11 Piping Hot Prius
10 Barefooted beachgoers leaping
9 Sweaty Snoozers
8 Fans a Twirling
7 Swimmers Swooning
6 Sunbathers a Laying
5 Floatie Rings
4 Scalding Nerds
3 French Vanilla Frappuchinos
2 Dove Ice Cream Bars

...and a parking spot at Alki Beach

The streak ends Friday and it'll be a while before we reach 80 again. Maybe even cool enough to find that elusive spot on Alki!
