Fall is in the air in the Emerald City. Looking back at the last 3 months, using the National Weather Service records, the warmest day in Seattle was August 19th, when the temperature topped out at 95F (35C). The second warmest day was way back on June 5th, 93F (33.9C). July did not break into the 90s, but we got close on July 29th with 89F (31.6C). Mean temperatures were near perfect (in our humble opinion): 63.5 (17.5C) June, 66.8 (19.3C) July, and 68.7 (20.3C) August. Days with greater than 0.01 inches of rain: June 10, July 6, and August 3, which means, for the 92 day period, 73 (about 80%) of the days were dry! Does that sound like your idea of Seattle? :-) Overall, it was a much more comfortable summer than 2015 which was blistering!
