...HOT WEATHER WILL CONTINUE OVER WESTERN WASHINGTON THROUGH THE FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND....

STRONG HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST THROUGH THE FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND. THIS WILL KEEP DAILY HIGH TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE NORMAL. FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...THE HOTTEST TEMPERATURES WILL BE OVER THE GREATER PUGET SOUND REGION AND THE SOUTHWEST INTERIOR WITH HIGHS IN THE 80S TO LOWER 90S. THE COAST AND NORTHWEST INTERIOR WILL BE IN THE 70S TO MID 80S.

ON SUNDAY...OFFSHORE FLOW WILL DEVELOP WHICH WILL PUSH HIGH TEMPERATURES INTO THE 80S TO MID 90S THROUGHOUT JUST ABOUT ALL OF WESTERN WASHINGTON. SOME OBSERVING STATIONS COULD BE SOME NEW RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES FOR THE DATE.

TEMPERATURES IN MOST AREAS WILL COOL INTO THE 50S OVERNIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY NIGHT...PROVIDING SOME RELIEF FROM THE DAYTIME HEAT. HOWEVER IN THE PUGET SOUND METRO AREA CORRIDOR INCLUDING SEATTLE...BELLEVUE...TACOMA...AND THE EAST PUGET SOUND LOWLANDS...LOW TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE 60S FOR MUCH OF THE AREA. THE WARMER OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES WILL PROVIDE LESS RELIEF FROM THE HOT DAYS.

HOT WEATHER...ESPECIALLY DURING AN EXTENDED STRETCH LIKE THIS...CAN PLACE EXTRA STRESS ON THE BODY AND POSSIBLY LEAD TO HEAT EXHAUSTION. IT IS EASIER TO BECOME DEHYDRATED. THE INTERIOR OF AUTOMOBILES CAN BECOME VERY HOT...CREATING A DANGER IF CHILDREN OR PETS ARE LEFT UNATTENDED.

TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS...IF YOU WORK OR SPEND TIME OUTSIDE. WHEN POSSIBLE...RESCHEDULE STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES TO EARLY MORNING OR EVENING. KNOW THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF HEAT EXHAUSTION AND HEAT STROKE. WEAR LIGHT WEIGHT AND LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING WHEN POSSIBLE AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. USE SUN BLOCK.
