Expect hot temperatures this weekend into next week. The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Watch for Kitsap, Pierce, King and Snohomish Counties but temperatures locally will be hot as well. High temperatures are expected to be in the upper 80 to low 90s Friday, Saturday and Sunday and possibly through midweek. Overnight lows may not fall much.
Officials warn that the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids…stay in an air-conditioned room…stay out of the sun…and check up on relatives and neighbors.
