We set a record high for the day in Seattle Wednesday afternoon at a toasty 93 degrees. The old record of 87 was set in 2009.

Olympia also set a new record high at 89; Bellingham tied the record at 83.

Record-breaking heat will be possible again on Thursday.

Although the zone of very warmest air will jump over the Cascades Thursday, temperatures are only likely to cool slightly as highs will remain in the mid- to upper-80s.

On Sunday, we will see big changes, with increasing showers and cooler temperatures.

“I believe that's most likely later in the afternoon or evening - and yes, that includes the Seahawks game Sunday evening with kickoff at 5:30 p.m.,” said KING 5 Meteorologist Jim Guy.

Highs Sunday will drop back to the low 70s. Cooler, showery air will linger over the area Monday for showers and sun breaks and highs only in the mid to upper 60s.

Also Sunday, we could see a few isolated thunderstorms over the Cascades.
