If you're thinking that this stretch of weather is unusual, you would be correct. Can you believe it's actually been 48 years since Seattle has had back to back days at 70 degrees or above AFTER October 15th? Oh yeah, we are living history! And yes, I did say BACK TO BACK days. Today will be day two of record breaking highs! The records for today will likely be broken are as follows:
Bellingham; 68 degrees back in 2003 ,Olympia; 72 degrees back in 2002, Quillayute 71 degrees back in 1974, and even Seattle may come close to a record of 74 degrees set back in 1989.
This nice stretch of weather is courtesy of a stubborn ridge of high pressure keeping all rain makers away from us. That ridge does gradually break down over the weekend allowing rain chance to return by Monday evening, turning wet and breezy by Tuesday. So long story short, make the best use of this amazing and historic stretch of weather before it leaves us next week!
