62 at Sand Point, and more sunshine on the way
Did someone say early spring?
The temperature hit 62 at Weather Service offices in Seattle’s Sand Point neighborhood Friday afternoon as the Puget Sound area got its warmest day of the year so far, said meteorologist Dennis D’Amico.
Seattle-Tacoma International, where the city’s official readings are taken, topped out at a more conservative 58 degrees, but also achieved it high for the year.
And the sunshine is expected to stick around, with no rain in the forecast until a chance of showers returns Tuesday night.
Forecast highs at the airport are 55 on Saturday, 54 on Sunday, 57 on Monday and 50 on Tuesday. Sea-Tac’s normal high temperature in early February is 49.
