ADVISORY: The B-Town Weather RockÂ® May Melt
The patented B-Town Blog Weather RockÂ® is already showing serious signs of melting due to the recent heat wave that’s come in,Â so please be aware of the dangers of the following throughout the hot weekend ahead (yay.):
- Pets in cars
- Elderly neighbors or family members
- Magical, large boulders used to predict weather
From the National Weather Service comes this “Advisory”:
…Hot weather across western Washington into the weekend…
A strong ridge of high pressure will build over the Pacific northwest today and persist through at least Saturday. Temperatures on Thursday will be noticeably warmer across western Washington under sunny skies. Offshore flow will strengthen on Friday with much hotter temperatures expected through Saturday.
Some spots may exceed the record high temperatures over the next few days.
Temperatures Thursday are expected to range from the upper 70s and 80s at the coast with widespread 80s across the interior. On Friday and Saturday interior areas north of Seattle will continue in the 80s with temperatures rising mainly into the low and mid 90s around the Puget Sound region… foothills…and southwest interior.
A switch to onshore flow will first occur Saturday afternoon along the coast resulting in cooler high temperatures. Temperatures will begin to moderate across the interior on Sunday as onshore flow increases.
Be careful of the heat in the coming days and check up on the elderly. Stay hydrated and avoid vigorous activity during the heat of the day. Never leave pets in a parked car.
The record temps to beat at SeaTac Airport are (go mercury!):
- THURS. 8/14: 88 (set in 2005)
- FRI. 8/15: 92 (set in 1967)
- SAT. 8/16: 98 (set in 1967)Â
So…enjoy another fine summer weekend, but be careful out there.
