Another hot stretch of weather, including the return of 90-degree temperatures, is shaping up for Seattle.

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.

Sizzling sunshine will send temperatures soaring each day.

Residents should take the necessary precautions to stay cool through this hot spell. Be sure to drink plenty of water, wear light clothing and avoid strenuous activities during the midday and afternoon hours (the hottest time of the day).

Remember to never leave a child or animal locked in a vehicle, even for a short amount of time.

The good news is that an end to the heat is in sight. While not producing a substantial amount of rain, a new Pacific storm system will bring temperatures back to normal by midweek.
