...hot weather will continue over western washington through the
fourth of july weekend....
strong high pressure will remain over the pacific northwest
through the fourth of july weekend. this will keep daily high
temperatures well above normal. for friday and saturday...the
hottest temperatures will be over the greater puget sound region
and the southwest interior with highs in the 80s to lower 90s. the
coast and northwest interior will be in the 70s to mid 80s.
on sunday...offshore flow will develop which will push high
temperatures into the 80s to mid 90s throughout just about all of
western washington. some observing stations could be some new
record high temperatures for the date.
temperatures in most areas will cool into the 50s overnight
friday night and saturday night...providing some relief from the
daytime heat. however in the puget sound metro area corridor
including seattle...bellevue...tacoma...and the east puget sound
lowlands...low temperatures will remain in the 60s for much of
the area. the warmer overnight temperatures will provide less
relief from the hot days.
hot weather...especially during an extended stretch like this...can
place extra stress on the body and possibly lead to heat
exhaustion. it is easier to become dehydrated. the interior of
automobiles can become very hot...creating a danger if children
or pets are left unattended.
take extra precautions...if you work or spend time outside. when
possible...reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water. use sun block.
