Temperatures will be on the rise in Seattle through Monday as a ridge of high pressure builds overhead and the typical cool flow of air from the Pacific Ocean is cut off.
While a high of 77 F is more typical this time of year, temperatures will rise into the middle 80s on Sunday before once again cracking the 90-degree mark on Monday.
