Seattle weather: Slightly cooler but remaining hot Wednesday

We're tracking another sweltering afternoon across Seattle and Puget Sound, but it won't be nearly as scorching as the last few days. 

Today's temperatures will be almost ten degrees cooler, but the heat may still be dangerous. That's why a Heat Advisory continues in the orange around Western Washington until 5 p.m. In the pink, Excessive Heat Warnings linger until late tonight.

Hot weather remains in Seattle Tuesday.

Drink plenty of water. If you don't have air conditioning at home, head into a building with A/C today to give your system a break. Check on the beloved senior citizens in your life to make sure they're doing okay. Also, remember to never leave people or pets in a car on a hot day – it can be life-threatening to do so.

Dangerous heat continues in Seattle.

Thankfully, it'll be slightly more comfortable for sleeping tonight. I know the heat has made sleeping incredibly difficult for many people without A/C in Western Washington. 

Temperatures remain hot through the remainder of the week, but it won't be as blistering as the last few days. 

Above-average heat persists in Seattle this week.
