Forecasters predict a high of 59 degrees and partly sunny skies on Monday. Then it gets better: Tuesday, sunny, high of 70 degrees; Wednesday, sunny, high of 79 degrees; Thursday, sunny, high of 79 degrees; and Friday, partly sunny, high of 73 degrees.

The warm weather is unusual for Seattle. In the last 70 years, the National Weather Service at Sea-Tac Airport has recorded high temperatures of at least 80 degrees 11 times in April. The last time was 10 years ago.

On average, Seattle doesn't get an 80-degree day until late May.

There's no A/C in our apartment building (dates from 1912), it's poorly insulated so it's stuffy and drafty and any cooling in the summer or warmth in the winter that we manage to pay for leaks out immediately, and I get migraines when it's hot and bright. Joy.  I guess I can always walk to the giant bright shiny air-conditioned tourist trap library.
