Updated Tuesday 4:30 p.m.
So, the forecast right now is fairly simple: There's no clouds, and no 70s in the next six days.
All that's left is sunshine and more heat, as we finish up a record-shattering June and keep right on going into July.
The morning clouds that promised cooling today arrived...and had little to no effect except Seattle dropped under 60 degrees finally (for, like an hour). No matter, we started baking again right when they burned off, reaching the mid 80s again.
Another clear night is in the offing with lows around 60.
I'm afraid I have no better news for those wondering whatever happened to Seattle's 70s in the summer. The rest of this week is continued sunny and hot with highs in the mid-upper 80s, maybe even some low 90s Thursday.
The forecast models promise some very slight cooling Friday through the Fourth of July weekend to the mid-upper 80s off of Thursday's potential 90. Sunshine through and through.
Now you notice in that first line I said no 70s in the next "six" days and not "seven." The long range models have been holding a carrot of hope for cooler weather starting the week after the Fourth of July weekend. So we're going to drop Tuesday down into the 70s. Part of me worries this is Lucy holding the football again, but Seattle can't go two straight weeks 80-plus right?
