The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a special weather statement. Hot temperatures near 90°F are expected on Sunday and Monday throughout the greater Puget Sound region. Monday is expected to be the hottest day possibly reaching into the mid 90's.

The other big story has been the brief showers Saturday morning around 7-8am. On Saturday we had a slight marine on-shore flow, and combined with the near saturated atmosphere from mountain thunderstorms, it created a weak convergence zone that formed over the King / Snohomish County line.

Most rain gauges in the area didn't record anything measurable but some locations recorded up to 0.02 inches of rain. Did you notice it was a little cooler Saturday too? Our high temperature was the first sub 90°F high since last Monday, reaching just 85°F.

Here's the daily high and low temperatures for July so far:

For those seeking cooler temperatures, places near the Puget Sound beaches seem to offer a 3-5 degree relief in temperature. Also, starting Tuesday we are looking to slowly begin our cool down to near normal temperatures.

We are looking at a forecast of mid 80's Tuesday, upper 70's Wednesday, and then a pattern of morning clouds / sprinkles and afternoon sun with highs in the mid-upper 70's through next weekend and possibly beyond.
