WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Heat alert extended

The National Weather Service has just added two days to the Heat Advisory alert – originally set to expire tomorrow night, now in effect through Friday night. The NWS says temperatures will cool a bit on Thursday but then rise again Friday. Today’s official high at Sea-Tac was 90, so this year has tied the record for most 90-or-warmer days in a year, 12 … so far.

    Man, sub-65 or above 90 seems to be all we can get this year.

    I’ve worked  on top of aircraft on the tarmac with air temp of 120 and marched in 30 below with wind chill so a few days of this ain’t gonna kill me. We don’t really have bad weather, just crummy.

    Using the airport as the measuring point way overstates high temps for Seattle proper. It definitely wasn’t 90 in the city yesterday, especially not west Seattle.

      I think that the weather station in Seattle city proper (near UW) showed 89 yesterday, so it’s not far off. :/

    All of the weather resources I check do not show those high temperatures for Thursday and Friday for Seattle.

    It’s been smelling slightly smoky on and off to me, especially last night.  Anyone know if that’s from the Wenatchee fires?  Those are closest, anyways.

    I smelled smoke last night as well. I came inside and checked the smoke maps at  https://fire.airnow.gov/ and saw that we had in fact tipped into being a yellow zone amongst a sea of green zones. It appeared it was drifting into Highland Park Sunrise Heights area from the Southeast. It didn’t seem to be correlated to any individual fire from what I could see. All green down to the opposite side of Mt. Rainier tonight. That link is the best resource that I know of for air quality conditions/forecasts, both local and nationwide.

Sorry, comment time is over.
