We now return you to your regularly-scheduled sunshine...
The weekend rain (or drizzles, depending on where you were) was a nice change of pace for those eager to get back to some semblance of Seattle normal, but it's all gone now, and searing summer of 2015 is getting back under way.
There will still be some lingering clouds to count it partly cloudy overnight with lows in the upper 50s. For official record-keeping purposes, there might be a few clouds around Tuesday morning but they'll quickly become an afterthought as sunshine will rule the day. Highs will climb into the low 80s.
We boost the temperatures further for Wednesday and through the weekend as high pressure resumes its spot along the West Coast and we go right back to the same weather pattern we've had for weeks this summer: Sunny and hot.
Highs Wednesday will reach the mid-upper 80s, with upper 80s common on Thursday and Friday -- and the way this summer has gone, I wouldn’t be surprised if one or both of those days touches 90 again in Seattle. The next 90 degree day in Seattle will tie the record for most in a year. Seems not if but when with August still to go...
There are a few signs we might cool a little for the weekend to the mid 80s -- but it's not a consensus among the forecast models. Honestly, this summer has yet to follow the typical Seattle playbook so I wouldn't be surprised to see mid-upper 80s keep right on going.
The good news is, as has been the case for much of the summer, you can find cooler weather if you need to by heading to the coast or Olympic Peninsula. The coast should stay in the upper 60s to mid 70s, with mid 70s to low 80s along the Olympic Peninsula and far North Sound.
Long range models don't find a big break in the next 10-14 days. August is apparently not going to let June and July hog all the sunshine this year...
