The past few weeks have brought temperatures at or below normal over western Washington, and above normal precipitation (see graph of temperature). This has radically reduced the fire danger threat over the west and knocked it way back east of the Cascades. But today and tomorrow summer will be back, REALLY back.
Warmer air has moved over our region and offshore flow...the key for heat in western Washington and Oregon..has returned. Don't believe that?--look at the winds aloft from the Seattle profiler this morning (see graphic). It is going to burn today, with many places away from the water getting into the upper 80s. Some places will break their daily records.
Probcast..the UW prediction website..which is almost perfect in such warming events is going upper 80s! Try it out yourself at http://www.probcast.com/ See graphic from it below.
A nice evening to enjoy a stroll in a park. Or enjoy a tropical drink on the deck.
Tomorrow will be equally as good (warm). Full sun. Sunday will be a step down into the 70s...but still very nice. And nothing threatening on Monday and Tuesday.
Perfect painting weather...which is what I will be doing. Unfortunately.
