6:04 AM: Good morning! It’s Thursday, August 18th, one month until the expected West Seattle Bridge reopening date.
Sunny and hot today, with the high likely to hit 90 again. (That’s where it topped out Wednesday at the official Sea-Tac gauge, which means that 90 or higher today would tie the record, twelve 90-or-higher-degree days in a year.)
