But when did I move out of Washington state???

Now, please, before any of you mid-westerners or southerners begin to scoff or laugh at me, remember that almost none of our homes have central air conditioning. Most people only have window fans, but more and more each year I am seeing people buying window unit AC's. They are nice, but not as effective as central air with this kind of heat.

Okay--complaining done! Have a wonderful Monday everyone!

Puget Sound Weather Outlook

The Heat is ON this week!

Updated Monday 6:45 a.m.

After a glorious weekend, the heat will crank up several notches around the region over the next couple of days. A thermal trough (warm, dry pocket of air at the earth's surface) will nose up the west coast today, forcing temperatures to climb into the middle 80s around Puget Sound for your Monday afternoon. This hot trough surges right into Puget Sound on Tuesday, making for highs in the upper 80s and low 90s.

A weak disturbance will traipse across the Northwest by mid-week, bringing both some high clouds and a rush of low morning marine clouds into the Sound. This will serve to shave back some of the heat, with highs dropping into the 70s and lower 80s Wednesday and Thursday.

The thermal trough roars back with a vengeance late this week, setting us up for what could be the warmest streak of the season. Highs will climb into the low 90s on Friday, middle 90s by Saturday, and upper 90s on Sunday. Some spots around the Sound could hit the century mark. Not only will it be scorching during the day, but overnight lows will stay mighty warm as well, probably making for one of those rare spells where us Western Washingtonians wish we had air conditioning!

That's too hot not to have air condtioning! I'd definitely be sweltering. Hope you can find plenty of ways to keep cool :)
