Happy Sunday! We reached a high of 62 degree this afternoon and it turned out to be a beautiful day. Right on point with our normal high temperature this time of year, but we all know it can't last forever. Temperatures take a dive tomorrow and we'll briefly return into the 50s.
Happy Full Moon! The Pink Moon will look a little bigger and brighter tonight. Now, I know it's called the Pink Moon, but it won't be pink in color. It gets its name from a flower that blooms this time of year. Bummer, I know. It's one of two supermoons this year so it'll still be a sight to see!
Happy Sunday! We reached a high of 60 degrees this afternoon with .10" of rain, as of 5 pm. We're still below average for the month, but we received about .61" of rain this weekend. That helps!
Happy Monday! Temperatures will remain very comfortable for us through Wednesday. They've cooled down since the weekend due to a westerly wind and will continue to cool through the week.
Happy Sunday! What a weekend! Temperatures climbed again today and peaked at 79 degrees. It wasn't record breaking, but we were 20 degrees above average.
Happy Thursday! Talk about a picture-perfect day in the PNW! Temperatures peaked in the mid-70s making it the warmest day of the year AND the new record breaking high temperature for the day. The previous record was set back in 1999 at 74 degrees. We topped out at 75 degrees today!
Happy Thursday! We reached a high of 67 degrees this afternoon making it the warmest temperature this year! We'll continue to break that though. High pressure is building and turning up the heat. Temperatures will only be a couple degrees shy of records this week. The record highs are labeled below in pink.
Happy Tuesday! We hit 64 degrees this afternoon! Were you able to enjoy? If not, no worries. This stretch is going to continue throughout the 7-day forecast.
We reached a high of 54 degrees this afternoon under sunny skies. I'm sure you felt that breeze too! It'll stick around in the forecast for the next couple of days then taper off. Lucky for us, the sunshine continues in the forecast along with warmer temperatures.
Happy Monday! I hope you have been able to enjoy the day. Temperatures will gradually drop this evening and the winds will calm down. We just have to be prepared for those chilly morning temperatures in the mid-upper 30s.
