• FORECAST: Warmest of week Thursday

    By: Nick Allard

    • Near record warmth Thursday
    • Cooling at the coast as onshore flow cranks up
    • Cool and showery weekend
    Happy Thursday!  The wind flow will be more offshore for Puget Sound and that will bring a few degrees of warming compared to yesterday. Reaching the 82-degree record high in Seattle will probably be too tall a task, but it is possible.  The warmest locations in the low to mid 80s will be in the south Sound near the mountains, the south interior like Olympia and Centralia and around Shelton.
    The coast will stay in the 60s and low-70s with onshore flow moving in, which by the way will move in for the rest of us -- also to the 60s -- Friday.
    Friday, we'll wake up to plenty of clouds and we'll manage only the mid 60s for highs to end the work week.  Still, this will be about five degrees warmer than normal.
    Some showers move in south of Seattle Friday evening and by Saturday, areas of rain will be around all of Western Washington.  It'll be blustery too on Saturday with highs only in the mid to upper 50s.
    Sunday won't be quite as wet but certainly not rain free with highs in the 50s.
    We'll have a slow drying trend Monday and Tuesday and we could have another prolonged warm up later next week.
