Mild weather to continue into the weekend, warmer weather expected after

WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — Forecasters with the Seattle office of the National Weather Service said this morning that highs today, Thursday, July 21st, were expected to be in the upper 70s to low 80s across the western Washington interior and the mid 70s on Friday and Saturday and in the mid 60s for areas along the coast. But for the days following, high temperatures are expected to reach the low 90s for some areas.

Above normal temperatures and dry conditions are on tap for the long-term period as confidence continues to increase that a strong upper-level ridge will set up across the West Coast and build into the Pacific Northwest next week. Although uncertainty remains regarding the precise placement, orientation, and strength of the ridge, latest guidance is still indicative of temperatures reaching the 90s for multiple days next week. Most recent guidance continues to hint that Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week for the interior, with temperatures likely reaching well into the low to mid 90s from Seattle southward. Overnight lows will also remain rather warm during this period of hot temperatures, with many urban locations likely only cooling into the mid 60s during the overnight hours. Should this trend continue, will likely need likely need to keep heat headlines in mind for next week.
