in Seattle Puget Sound is about to experience yet another round of late summer heat, with forecasters saying that by mid-week, temperatures will once more reach toward the 90s. According to long-range forecasts, temperatures could continue to rise through at least early September.

The National Weather Service predicts that Monday and Tuesday will be quite similar to Sunday, with afternoon highs in the Seattle area of approximately 80 degrees and largely sunny skies. The next heat wave is expected to start on Wednesday and likely peak on Thursday, when Seattle might equal or surpass its all-time mark for 90-degree days in a calendar year.

For anyone who are sensitive to heat or who lack access to proper cooling or water, the midweek heatwave poses a moderate risk of heat-related illness, and some areas of central Puget Sound and the Cascade foothills may fall into the high-risk category.

The National Weather Service’s late-week forecast still had “considerable uncertainty,” but early indications point to a minor cooling next Friday and Saturday. Extended predictions, however, indicate that there is a 63 percent possibility that temperatures will remain above average until the end of August.

In the upcoming days, Patch will have more information about what to anticipate next week.
