Skip to comments.Could Wednesday be Seattle's hottest day ever?

How much sweat does it take to set a new heat-wave record? Sticky Seattleites may find out this week. If temperatures stay at 90 degrees or higher through Saturday, that will add up to six sweltering days in a row. And if Seattle's high reaches 100 degrees today, as forecast, it will tie the city's all-time temperature record. The region's previous record hot spells lasted five days, in August 1981 and July 1941. "We're certainly in the running," said Brad Colman, local meteorologist-in-charge for the National Weather Service.

I lived in San Antonio for 28 years.
It's 90+ every day EVERY SINGLE DAY from early May thru September.
Almost NO ONE has Air-Conditioning in Seattle....I know....Lived there for 5 years in a very nice penthouse with NO AIR!
I guess the liberals in Leftattle will see this as full confirmation of their global warming dogma.
Time to step up the recycling, cut back to half a sheet of TP after a bowel movement, and cut back to starvation rations of hideously over-priced “organic” food.
Yeah, well we are having a high of 80 in Georgia today. In July.
It’s about weather patterns and right now the pattern is hot in Seattle. Like it was when a record was set in 1941 (as the article says). But I imagine we’ll hear about about carbon footprints and man made climate change.
Seattle liberals are a special breed, and by that I mean the short bus kind of special. No one can combine mind-blowing arrogance with mind-blowing ignorance quite like a Seattle liberal. And they’re very racist in that condescending way of theirs - I’ve seen white Seattle liberals treat their black “friends” the same way they treat their dogs and cats.
Screw the Communist NorthWest let them suffer. It 78 in Bluegrass State today - coolest July ever! Not a day over 90 this month and lovin’ every minute of it! Pass the burbon... hold the ice!
Hey Seattle Libs, believe in global warming, get global warming. Perfiect justice
High of 81 here today at Lake of the Ozarks. It’s supposed to be cool all week.
There’s a reason that sane folks don’t live that close to hell...;)
I was born and raised - and still live a lot - in the Seattle area. Usually we get 1-2 days in the low 90s, half a dozen in the upper 80s, and two dozen in the low 80s. We’re not used to this kind of extended mid-90s (or higher) heat. Remember, it’s NEVER been above 100 - ever.
Thankfully, the temps still drop to 60-65 at night so you can cool the house with fans in the windows.
Not only that, but cherry season is over. Sigh. Not that I stuffed myself silly with Raniers or anything like that, but this is my first year in Wash. I almost went nuts seeing all the cherry stands and orchards full of cherries. And now they’re gone.
That would be considered “cool” compared to the inferno this summer has been in South Texas. Record drought on top it. I long for a nice Colorado vacation right now.
'Twas a good year for cherries.
Meanwhile Chicago has coldest July in 64 years. Go figure...
With all those lakes, rivers and Puget Sound at your doorstep....just jump in for the whole week!
<Almost NO ONE has Air-Conditioning in Seattle.
No kidding. When was looking at apartments online prior to a move there, I kept clicking past the apartments w/o air conditioning. Eventually I realized that none of them had it. Few buildings on campus had air, many buses didn’t have air conditioning, making for some very aromatic buses at the end of a warm day.
After a few days of heat, with no air, you just get tired and demoralized (and I’m from DC, I know from heat and humidity). We weren’t even allowed to get a window unit in our complex since it would ‘ruin the aesthetics’ of the building. Wonderful.
Now I’m in Iowa and I turn the air down to 68. People in hotter states can make fun all they want, but I’d rather freeze with air conditioning and wear a sweater inside than be hot like I was in Seattle with no relief.
This year is full of suprises. Next year I will be prepared for cherry season. I already have my pitter.
<Ive seen white Seattle liberals treat their black friends the same way they treat their dogs and cats.
Interesting statement. I did some research in Seattle with black grad students. Every one of them pointed out that Seattlelites talk a good diversity game, but when you look at their personal lives, they don’t have black friends, don’t live in diverse neighborhoods, aren’t in study groups with blacks, etc. For the most part, these students were not the Gates type of racial activist, seeing racism everywhere. They just noted that the talk did not match the walk in Seattle.
Someone already pointed this out, but I’ll say it again—almost no one has A/C here. Our house doesn’t, we’re about 45 miles south of Seattle. I’m from the South, and I know heat, but I also know A/C. These past few days have been miserable.
