“Hope you didn’t get too used to the cool down the last few days – heat returns next week.”
“Although it is uncomfortable for a lot of us, hot weather in the latter half of July and the first part of August is not unusual. In fact, our all-time record hot days have occurred in the last two weeks of July. We hit 100 degrees at Sea-Tac on July 20, 1994. Our all-time record at Sea-Tac was on July 29, 2009 with a sweltering 103 degrees,” by Rich Marriott, KING 5 TV News, Seattle.
