Do you like it hot? How about 95 in Seattle on the Fourth of July?

That’s what The Weather Channel is calling for in the 10-day forecast issued Thursday.

If the temperature gets even close to that mark, it would be the hottest Independence Day in Seattle history. The current record for the Fourth of July is 91, set in 1972

The Weather Channel forecast calls for high temperatures in the 90s for four of the next 10 days, topping out with the scorcher on Independence Day.

The National Weather Service is also predicting a hot streak, but its forecasters only set specific highs and lows up to seven days out, said meteorologist Johnny Burg.

But he notes that the Climate Prediction Center, another part of NOAA, is forecasting a high likelihood of above-normal temperatures for Western Washington for the next two weeks.

“It’s going to be warmer and drier, but that’s all we can really say at this point,” Burg said.
