A hot weekend is on tap for the Olympia area, and it could be a record-setting one, with temperatures expected to come close to tying or breaking a record that has stood since 1961.
Expect daytime highs Friday, Saturday and Sunday to range from the mid-80s to lower 90s, said Johnny Burg with the National Weather Service.
But Sunday’s forecast is for temperatures to climb to 92 degrees, which is within striking distance of 94 degrees, the record set 53 years ago.
Bottom line: it will be warm to hot, depending on your tolerance for such things, so if you either want to beat the heat or greet the heat, here are a few things to consider this weekend.
Flemm also asks that park visitors:
In addition to the Olympia Farmers Market, the Lacey Community Market opens Saturday at Huntamer Park. The park also will host Zumba at 2 p.m. Saturday, which means those who plan to get a Zumba workout, should remember to bring plenty of water, Flemm said.
