The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued an Excessive
Heat Warning, which is in effect from 2 PM Tuesday to 9 PM PDT
Friday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no longer in effect.

* TEMPERATURE...Unusually hot weather is forecast to begin Tuesday
and continue through Friday, with widespread record highs on
Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday should be the hottest day in
this stretch for most spots, and high temperatures will
probably be within 5 degrees of the all-time record high.

Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 80s to lower 90s warming to
the 90s to near 105 on Thursday. Friday will be a bit cooler, but
highs will still be in the upper 80s and 90s.

* TIMING...Tuesday afternoon through early Friday evening.

* IMPACTS...Heat illnesses are possible with temperatures this
hot. People engaged in outdoor activities should have access
to plenty of beverages as well as places to get out of the
direct sunlight.


An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
unusually hot weather will occur, creating a dangerous situation
in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay
out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young
children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles
under any circumstances. This is especially true during hot
weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes.
