90s here we come: Record-breaking heat in the forecast for Puget Sound

Welcome to the first full day of summer! Hard to believe we are already nearing the end of June. The forecast looks promising and potentially record-breaking!

The outlook is great as we roll through the rest of the work week and into the weekend. A ridge of high pressure continues to build offshore, and that’s going to give us plenty of sun over the next several days.

Temperatures running warmer each day from the upper 60s to low 70s on Wednesday, climbing  to the 70s and 80s Thursday and Friday, with 90s by the weekend! Grab the sunblock and sunglasses. Stay hydrated all!

Sundays record high is 88 degrees, and we're forecast to reach the low 90s.
