Walter Kelley: This could be the hottest Labor Day on record in Seattle

SEATTLE -- Did you enjoy the slight mist this morning?

Q13 News Meteorologist M.J. McDermott we’ll enjoy a mid-week cool down Wednesday and Thursday. Morning clouds with some afternoon clearing and highs in the mid 70s. There is even the chance for a little rain/drizzle/mist on the coast today.

Air quality is GOOD this morning in Western Washington thanks to the onshore flow.

Central and Eastern Washington still suffering unhealthy air quality due to the Jolly Mountain Fire near Cle Elum.
