…at least since records have been kept in the Seattle area. We’re either at 101 or 102, according to official observations. Time to pop a cold beverage and party? Or just pant?
While the record is kept at Sea-Tac, here are some amateur station readings in our area at 4 p.m.:
103.8 degrees on Phinney Ridge
101.1 degrees on Crown Hill
105.1 degrees in Freelard
and 96.4 degrees in Greenwood
So there, it is cooler in Greenwood…
