SEATTLE -- A Heat Advisory has been issued by Seattle National Weather Service, running through 9:00 p.m. tonight.

Record temperatures will get into the mid-to-upper 80s to the low-to-mid 90s. We could even hit 100 in places like Kent or Auburn. This is 20 or more degrees above normal. The average temperature for today is 71 degrees.

Take water with you if you're heading out to Seattle's Pride Parade today or many of the outdoor activities going on around the Puget Sound region.

Take care to watch babies and kids as well as the elderly in this heat. NEVER leave a child or pet in the car. It is dangerous and can potentially be deadly. And if your pets are outside, make sure they have enough water and check on them to make sure they're not getting overheated.

Monday we will drop back to 80 and Tuesday will be 72. Enjoy the heat and keep cool.

  • Practice water and fire safety.
  • Don’t leave pets or kids in parked cars.
  • Hydrate and lots of sunscreen but most of all have a great Summer Weekend.
