Seattle temperature eclipses 90 for first time in two years

Staff Reporter Ken Armstrong

Seattle-area temperatures topped 90 for the first time in two years Saturday evening, and the hot weather is likely to hang around until the end of the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

The temperature at Sea-Tac airport reached 93 degrees at 6 p.m., meteorologist Jay Albrecht said.

On Sunday the temperature could climb to 94 or 95, Albrecht said. But come evening a southwesterly breeze is expected to take hold and help drive the temperatures back down. Monday, the high is likely to be in the low or mid-80s, Albrecht said.

The last time it was this hot in the Seattle area was in August 2010, when the temperature shot past 90 degrees on three straight days, going as high as 96.
