EVERETT JULY 8: The U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a heat advisory for portions of the northwest and west central Washington until 10 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, July 9.

“Extreme heat will significantly increase the risk of heat-related illnesses for much of the population, especially those who are heat sensitive and those without effective cooling or adequate hydration,” the advisory said.

In an interview with King 5 Jeff Michalski with NWS said that normal temperatures for this time of year range from highs of 75 degrees and lows of 56.

Temperatures will slowly cool throughout the week but will remain above normal in the 80s for much of the lowlands.
