Seattle forecasted to see 70 degrees for first time this year

The warmest weather in over half a year is on the way to Seattle this week.

Excerpt from KING TV-5 News:

The warmest weather in over six months is on the way to Seattle and western Washington this week. Confidence is increasing that we will see temperatures in the 60s and 70s for highs for several consecutive days beginning Tuesday.


Pacific NW was one of the only places in the world to endure a ‘cold’ March. Here’s why

Excerpt from The Olympian:

If you think the Pacific Northwest got an unfair dose of cold weather for March, you’re absolutely right. What you may not realize is that it was a colder month than most of the rest of the world experienced.

March 2023 was the second-hottest March worldwide since records began in 1880, according to NASA. Worldwide temperatures measured 2.2 degrees above NASA’s baseline average for the month, with nearly every mainland area seeing above-average temperatures.

But not in the Pacific Northwest.

The West Coast of the United States, the Pacific Northwest and parts of Canada were among the few places on Earth that experienced below-average temperatures in March — the other locations were Iceland and the southern tip of South America.
