Seattle on track to beat record for

reaching 75 degrees

24 May 10 - Last year, Seattle was already heading toward the 80s at the end of May, says Scott Sistek of KOMO TV. In 2008, Seattle notched its first 90 on May 17.

So far this year, we've barely eked out a 72, with mainly 60s still dotting the forecast for the foreseeable future.

Just how rare is it that we go so long before reaching 75 degrees?

We're nearing Top 5 territory, says Sistek. Here are the latest 75 degree days throughout Sea-Tac history:

1) 1991: June 9
2) 1955: June 8
3) 2000: June 3
4) 1981: May 28
5) 1964: May 27
6) 1950: May 25
7) 1986: May 25
8) 1948: May 24

So as of today (May 24), we'll be tied for 6th latest. Long-range models show pretty confidently we'll slide into at least fourth place on Friday, and odds look pretty good we'll make it past June 3rd for third place.
