Current records are 79 degrees on Sunday, 80 degrees on Monday and 76 degrees on Tuesday.

Into the weekend, temperatures will warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s with sunny skies and calm conditions.

As of Thursday, Sunday’s and Monday’s high temperatures are forecasted to be 80, with 78 on Tuesday.

“We could see record high temps on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday! Light offshore flow will develop into Monday, which could mean some areas of haze may move back in. That’s something we will continue to watch,” KIRO 7 Meteorologist Nick Allard said Thursday. “It looks like we’ll see sunshine at least through next Wednesday.”

This year’s summer came with scorching temperatures that raised wildfire risk and broke record highs on some days.

On July 27 in Olympia, the 1998 high of 96 degrees was broken by one degree for a record high of 97.

On July 31, Seattle set records for most consecutive days of high temperatures. On that day, the temperature rose to 91 degrees by early afternoon, the record sixth straight day the mercury rose above 90.
