There seems to be a magical number when it comes to temperatures in the Northwest. It's the number that elicits nods of approval from most, (but not all) native north westerners. The number is 75 and it is literally, as the fairy tale says, "Not too hot, not too cold, it's just right.
So here we go. Wednesday will start out with a few areas of low clouds followed by sunshine for the rest of the day and high temperatures near 75°.
Of course this is Western Washington and not everybody gets the same thing, so there will be some nuances. Areas north of Seattle and will probably be in the low 70s and to the west on the coast, highs will be in the mid-60s.
The common theme, regardless of where you live, is the opportunity to get sunshine, especially in the afternoon.
After tomorrow we continue to climb the temperature ladder with highs reaching the upper 70s by the end of the week.
It does look a bit cooler over the weekend but still nothing that will rule out the chance of at least some daily sunshine.
In the mountains the freezing level will rise to nearly 11,000 feet and afternoon pass temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s.
East of the Cascades the sun will also be the dominant feature, and as usual, it will be warmer than Western Washington with highs in the low to mid 80s.
Now for those of you who are not on board the 75° thing have patience, the 60s will be back next week.
Have a great night!
