SEATTLE (AP) — The National Weather Service says the heat wave continues in Eastern Washington with triple-digit highs forecast again Tuesday, but the heat is starting to ease in Western Washington.
Record high temperatures were recorded Monday across the state: 89 at Sea-Tac Airport, 88 at Olympia, 96 at Pullman, 105 at Ephrata, and 107 at Moses Lake.
A heat advisory is in effect until 10 p.m. Tuesday for most of Eastern Washington, with some relief on Wednesday when highs are expected only in the 80s and 90s. Highs in Western Washington are forecast in the 80s Tuesday and Wednesday.
The hot, dry weather is forecast to continue through the Fourth of July and into the weekend, with temperatures returning to near-normal.
