WeatherWatcher: June Heatwave

Winds are from the North and East, skies are sunny, and portable air conditioners have been dug out of storage. All signs point to, yes, we are experiencing another seasonal short-lived heat wave.

High temperatures reported on Tuesday in the Shoreline area:
  • Echo Lake/North City: 84°F
  • Ridgecrest: 80°F
  • Central Market: 78°F
  • Sheridan Beach (Lake Forest Park): 83°F
  • Richmond Beach: 76°F
Wednesday is expected to be the worst of this June heatwave before we go back to our more normal June gloom of morning clouds and afternoon sun. Temperatures across Shoreline and Lake Forest Park are expected to be between 82°F and 87°F.

The closer you are to the Puget Sound, the higher the chance you'll fall into the cooler high temperature range. Generally west of Aurora will stay in the low 80's with places east of Aurora reaching the mid-upper 80's. If you want to experience 90°F you'll have to go south of Northgate or Downtown Seattle.

Cooler air will begin to filter into the area Wednesday evening, which could fire off some thunderstorms over the Cascade mountains for a light show. It doesn't look like we have any threat of those storms in the lowlands but that could change.

The forecast for the rest of the week and all the way through the weekend remains fairly normal for what I would expect in June. Some morning clouds, maybe a drizzle, and afternoon sunshine is expected. Highs are expected to be down in the low to mid 70's with lows in the 50's.
