Monday was another day of record high January temperatures in Western Washington.

The National Weather Service says it was the third consecutive day for some record highs in the area.

On Monday, Sea-Tac Airport hit 61 degrees, three degrees higher than the old record for the date, 58 degrees, set in 2003. Airport records have been kept since the mid-1940s. On Sunday, the airport hit a record 63, five degrees higher than the old record.

Other record highs on Monday were 63 in Olympia, 63 at the Weather Service station at Sandpoint in Seattle, 60 in Bellingham and 57 in Hoquiam on the coast.

The Weather Service forecast for Seattle calls for a 30 percent chance of rain on Tuesday with a high in the low 50s.
