PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA
205 PM PDT THU JUL 30 2015

...MORE HOT WEATHER RECORDS ARE FALLING IN SEATTLE TODAY...

SEATAC AIRPORT REACHED 91 DEGREES JUST BEFORE 2 PM TODAY...AND
IT IS THE 9TH DAY SO FAR THIS MONTH OF 90 DEGREES OR WARMER WEATHER.
THIS JULY HAS HAD THE MOST 90+ DEGREE DAYS IN ANY MONTH. THE OLD
RECORD WAS 7 DAYS...SET IN JULY 1958.

TODAY IS THE 10TH DAY THIS YEAR WITH A HIGH OF 90 DEGREES OR MORE.
THAT IS ALSO A RECORD FOR THE MOST 90 DEGREE PLUS DAYS IN A YEAR.
THE OLD RECORD WAS 9 SET IN 1958.

THE FORECAST HIGH TEMPERATURE FOR SEATTLE ON FRIDAY IS IN THE LOWER
90S...SO WE WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY ADD ANOTHER DAY TO THE RECORD.

SEATTLE IS ON THE VERGE OF SETTING THE RECORD FOR THE ALL-TIME
WARMEST MONTH. THIS INCLUDES THE FEDERAL BUILDING RECORDS WHICH GO
BACK TO THE 1890S. THE WARMEST MONTH ON RECORD FOR SEATTLE IS AUGUST
1967 WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 71.1 DEGREES. THROUGH THE 29TH
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR JULY 2015 IS 70.7 DEGREES. SEATTLE NEEDS
TO RECORD AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF AT LEAST 76.5 DEGREES THE NEXT
TWO DAYS TO BREAK THE RECORD.

SEATTLE ALSO HAS A CHANCE TO BREAK THE RECORD FOR THE WARMEST
AVERAGE MONTHLY LOW TEMPERATURE. THE CURRENT RECORD IS 59.9 DEGREES
SET IN AUGUST 2013. THROUGH THE 29TH THE AVERAGE LOW TEMPERATURE FOR
JULY 2015 IS 59.7 DEGREES.

IT WILL NOT BE A RECORD FOR THE WARMEST AVERAGE MONTHLY HIGH
TEMPERATURE. THE RECORD IS 83.7 DEGREES SET IN AUGUST 1967. THROUGH
THE 29TH THE AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURE FOR JULY 2015 IS 81.8 DEGREES.
EVEN WITH A COUPLE OF HOT DAYS AHEAD...THE AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURE
FOR THE MONTH WILL ONLY INCREASE .8 TO 1 DEGREE. JULY 2015 WILL END
UP BEING THE SECOND WARMEST MONTH ON RECORD IN TERMS OF AVERAGE HIGH
TEMPERATURE.
