Storm clouds over SW Shoreline Saturday

We had several downpours move through the area Saturday, as forecasted. There were even some thunderstorms but they missed Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. Shoreline ranged from 0.28 inches of rain near Richmond Beach to around 0.18 inches of rain towards I-5 at my weather station.

This week the wildfire smoke haze returns, and along with it more above normal heat. Temperatures are expected to range in the low-mid 80's most of the week with lows near either side of 60°F.

Tuesday is the exception with a high temperature expected to possibly reach the low 90's once again. The smokey, warm and otherwise sunny weather at this time is expected to last through next weekend.

Here are the temperature graphs for high and low temperatures for August so far. Only August 2nd, 3rd, and 4th were cool enough to fit in the realm of average temperature for this time of year.

P.S. Can you see the jet flying through the clouds?
