Commuters in the mist: foggy prelude to a sunny week

In this view north from the South Holgate Street overpass, traffic at left heads south out of downtown Seattle in thick fog during Monday morning's early commute. On a clear day, the city skyline would be visible. The fog is expected to burn off midday, with temperatures in the high 70s. (Ellen M. Banner / The Seattle Times)

Summer may be in its final weeks, but forecasters say it will make itself felt with above-normal temperatures this week.

The National Weather Service expects the highest temperatures — 15 to 20 degrees above average on Wednesday and Thursday.

Highs are forecast in the 80s in Western Washington and 90s in Eastern Washington.

Clouds are expected to return to Western Washington by Friday to cool things off to the 70s by the weekend.
