    After a period of cool, wet conditions, Seattle will be gripped by record warmth and a lot of sunshine this week.

    As of Thursday evening, Seattle reached an unofficial high of 85 F, shattering the record of 81 F set in 1998.

    While it will remain warm on Friday, the record high of 87 F set in 1945 will not be challenged. The high is expected to be in the mid-70s.

    Spotty showers and more clouds will return for the weekend as a storm over the Pacific approaches, and the limited sunshine will hold temperatures down. Highs will be in the low 60s on Saturday and Sunday.
