Today was the 23rd day above 80 degrees this year so far in Seattle. Wednesday will be the 24th day above 80 degrees. The average for the entire year is 24 days. So that means all the 80s we get for the rest of Summer and Fall will just be gravy to this sweet summer. Last year we didn’t even get 20. The forecast calls for near 80 degree weather through the weekend. It’ll drop into the 70s but still be near 80. The mountains will start to see some thunderstorms this weekend so I’ll watch if any might drift into the lowlands. Walter. 8/6/13
