Many people in Washington and Oregon will feel the hot weather that has been broiling much of the rest of the country this weekend.
Seattle could even break a weather record on Sunday when temperatures threaten to go above 90 degrees. The record for August 5 is 89 degrees, set back in 1977.
A lot of people are saying we've waited long enough for warm weather -- the last time Seattle reached 90 degrees was on August 16, 2010, according to KING 5 Meteorologist Lisa Van Cise. Is 90 degrees too hot? Tell us your ideal weather on our Facebook page.
Our warm weekend sunshine is attributed to high pressure and offshore flow, pushing temperatures into the 80s, 90s and even 100s in some areas around Eastern Washington.
Western Washington will mostly stick around the mid to upper 80s for Saturday and Sunday, with Sunday forecasted to be the warmer of the two. Places away from the Puget Sound could flirt with the mid 90s, especially around the foothills of the Cascades and around parts of Hood Canal.

Around Portland and southwest Washington, there will be an excessive heat watch for Saturday. Temperatures in the 90s bring the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Forecasters also are advising people who cool off in lakes and rivers to wear life jackets.
The Puget Sound Clean Air agency has warned that unhealthy smog could build up for communities against the Cascade Mountains, such as Enumclaw on Sunday.
