Temperatures reached 62 degrees in Seattle on Friday.
Did someone say early spring?
The temperature hit 62 degrees at National Weather Service offices in Seattle’s Sand Point neighborhood Friday afternoon as the Puget Sound area got its warmest day of the year so far, said meteorologist Dennis D’Amico.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where the city’s official readings are taken, topped out at a more conservative 58 degrees, but also achieved its high for the year.
And the sunshine is expected to stick around, with no rain in the forecast until a chance of showers returns Tuesday night.
