[Editor’s note: Continued dry with no rain in the forecast.]
From KING-5 News:
The temperature hit 90 degrees around 3 p.m. at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). That makes for the 12th 90-degree day this year.
The record for the most 90-degree days in a year in Seattle was originally set in 2015, with 12, according to KING 5 Meteorologist Chris Nunley.
The Seattle area had a record six straight days of 90-plus degrees at the end of July. That was the longest stretch of days at that temperature in the 77 years records have been kept.
A daily high record was broken in Olympia and Shelton. In Olympia, the high was 91 degrees and the record was 90 in 1987. In Shelton, the high was 94 degrees when the record was 89 degrees in 2003.
