Seattle Pride weekend weather: Temperatures should rise to the high 80s

Nobody’s raining on this Pride Parade

It should be an ultra-sunny and warm Seattle Pride this weekend.

As Western Washington braces for temperatures in the low 90s, Seattle is supposed to get close. After reaching a high of 78 on Friday, the National Weather Service forecasts temperatures climbing to 87 on Saturday and 89 on Sunday with no chance of precipitation. If you’re marching, you might want to bring sunscreen and an extra water bottle.

Still, this is good news for the heat-tolerant—it’s a bummer when it literally rains on the Pride Parade, and Seattle Pride is largely made up of outdoor events. The weekend is full of marches and parades, including the Pride Parade, the Trans Pride March, and the Dyke March. Trans Pride and Family Pride are both in Cal Anderson park. Capitol Hill is full of block parties, plus the PrideFest Capitol Hill Street Fair.

The big Pride Parade and PrideFest at Seattle Center are both on Sunday, when temperatures are supposed to be at their highest. Expect the International Fountain to get crowded.

Seattle is full of Pride events all weekend long, both indoor and outdoor. The Seattle Weekly’s Pride calendar has a brief overview, and The Stranger’s queer calendar is full of both indoor and outdoor ideas.
