SEATTLE (AP) - The National Weather Service says both Seattle and Olympia, Washington, set high temperature records on Friday while the Portland, Oregon, suburb of Troutdale tied the record high for the date.

Olympia’s high was 63 degrees, breaking the old record for Feb. 13 of 58 degrees, set in 1996. In Seattle, the temperature at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport hit 60, breaking the old record of 59, also set in 1996. Sea-Tac records have been kept since the mid 1940s.

Weather Service meteorologist Jay Albrecht says Seattle should see lots of sunshine in the next few days, possibly extending into the middle of the coming week.

Troutdale tied the previous high of 61 degrees, set in 1976. Records there have been kept since 1948.
