Western Washington could hit 90 degrees this weekend

Try to stay cool this weekend! Some areas of Western Washington could reach 90 degrees.

Get ready for more hot, sunny, and dry weather across Washington.

Sea-Tac Airport hit 89 degrees Thursday, making it the warmest (or hottest) day so far this year, but today could beat that! We should be around 76 degrees this time of year, but we're tracking high temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Several spots in Eastern Washington will reach triple digits!

With high pressure dominating the forecast, mid-to-upper 80s continue Monday and Tuesday. A trough approaches midweek bringing onshore flow and a few clouds. Temps mid-to-late week will be closer to 80 degrees.
