So at this point, we’re sure you’ve noticed that July has been off to a slow start. And while Seattle summer normally starts mid-July, we’re not feeling the heat. Instead, things have been abnormally chilly. In fact, this is the coldest first week of July that Seattle has seen in 15 years. Brrrr.
But that being said, you also may have not noticed. After all, it’s not insanely cold. We’re about 2 degrees below what’s normal for this time of year. So while it’s really not that bad, we’ve definitely had warmer summers. And on that note, it means we might have a chilly summer this year. But an emphasis on might, we don’t want to jinx anything.
With an average high temperature of 69.4° this was the coldest first week of July in Seattle since 2002 ( 68.6° ). Another upper level trough will bring more showers to the area tomorrow with yet another in the endless series of troughs arriving over the weekend. #wawx pic.twitter.com/rMRI0Mv0xj

And if there’s anything we know about living in Seattle, it’s that our weather changes constantly. So we’ll keep our fingers crossed that things will heat up a bit. After all, we’re only 2 weeks in. But we do have to say, we appreciate not needing AC.
