SEATTLE - Beautiful conditions across Western Washington again today! Highs slightly above normal for SeaTac Wednesday, landing at 75. The average temperature for this time of year is 72 and will jump up a degree tomorrow.
As we roll into the weekend the extreme heat comes our way! Models are forecasting upper 90s to low 100s for Puget Sound--yes triple digits! This is why the Q13 Fox Weather Team is issuing Weather Alert Days for Saturday, Sunday, and extending into Monday.
And if you are curious about extreme heat records… here are some of the hottest days on record for SeaTac since 1960! And as far as the hottest temperature we've seen at SeaTac in June is 96! So, hitting 100+ will be a new record for the month!
The heat is not limited to Washington, we'll also see records shattered across much of the Northwest. Check out Sunday's forecast for these select cities, including Portland, Oregon!
An Excessive Heat Watch and Warning also being issued for Friday through early next week for record-shattering highs in the upper 90s to 100+ across the state.
