WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: The fog, the smoke, and the holiday

Weather notes – and some cool photos from this morning that came in too late for our daily preview:

The fog and full moon made for some breathtaking scenes – thanks to everyone who sent photos! The forecast suggests we might see more fog in spots tomorrow morning.

Something else you might see tomorrow and beyond: Smoke. The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency warns that a plume of smoke from California wildfires is headed this way,. Tomorrow it will be overhead and likely to have minimal impact, but if it lingers through the weekend, we could have air-quality challenges. On the bright side, the weather is expected to be warm through Labor Day!

Temperatures may get into the 80s tomorrow and Tuesday, and highs are forecast as “near 80” for the days inbetween.

Tomorrow morning’s moonset is 7:48 am.

    Nobody likes you and your warm labor day weather Ms. Record!  ;-). I really am looking forward to solid 70 degree weather soon though.  (Heh not 70s, 70! 68 is fine too). Hope it happens.

      Personally, my preference would be 75 daily. Spent too many years in Las Vegas (where I hear they’ve had bonus 110-degree days this summer, bleh)…

        I’m with WSB.  We hail from Salt Lake City where, when we left, there were consistent 104 days in the summer… this was 15 years ago.

    Fantastic photos!  Thanks to the submitters for passing them along and WSB for sharing.

    We’ve been hearing the fog horn & seeing all the clouds/fog – it’s quite amazing.

    Wonderful photos – thanks for sharing. The ferry and ship fog horns were heard loud and clear 1 mile up the hill from the ferry dock.

    I miss the days when 75 was “super hot”, I’m not made for this weather! Lol Beautiful pictures! 💚

    Sunny, 65 -70 degrees, a nice breeze – perfection.  But chilly and foggy is nice, too, and snow is awesome. Anything above 75 – not so much.  This summer has been wonderful for the most part.

Sorry, comment time is over.
