SEATTLE — Seattle has sizzled like (almost) no other June day in the past 72 years since records have been kept at Sea-Tac Airport.

Just after 4 p.m., the temperature reached 96 degrees, tying the all-time hottest June day on record there. The only other times it’s been this warm in June was on June 30, 1995 and June 9, 1955.

It also shattered the daily record high of 88 degrees, set in 2006.

Seattle averages a 95 degree or warmer day about every other year.

But Seattle was not alone, Olympia also tied its hottest June date on record with a reading of 98 degrees, last done on June 18, 1982. Everett hit 87, Arlington hit 90, Renton hit 95, Gig Harbor hit 94,and Vancouver (WA) hit 101!

But much cooler air was on the way as the ridge of high pressure and its ensuing thermal trough have moved east of the Cascades and ocean breezes were making their way into the Western Washington interior. The temperature dropped from 75 to 64 in just 20 minutes at the Coast Guard base in Port Angeles. The coast was socked in with fog and in the mid 60s.

Expect rapid cooling later this evening with low clouds moving in overnight. Monday will feature a solid dose of clouds in the morning and highs “only” in the low 70s.
