Temperatures Sunday will be notably warmer than today, and Monday and Tuesday will both be very hot across most of the region.
Make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, avoid or limit outdoor activities (especially during the hottest time of day), and check up on your neighbors or family members who may be more sensitive to the heat.

FIRE DANGER - WASHINGTON STATE: Additional counties shifting into "High Fire Danger".
We would not be surprised to see a significant bump on moderate counties into high in this coming week. Things are getting hot again.
Lewis County Sheriff's Office shared Sunday: As we are waking up this morning to the tragic news from the Kent Police Department; where one of their officers was killed this morning. We here at the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office are sending thoughts and prayers to the officer’s family, friends, Kent PD, and to the community.
We are with you!

Ethan Siegel answers: Which Movies Get The Science Of Time Travel Right?
“I’m admittedly a fan of time-travel movies (however they explain it). What movie makes the best case for using this plot device accurately?”
Time travel has been a staple of fiction for centuries, as the notion of either traveling forward in time to explore the future or back in time to right a past wrong have been a part of humanity’s imaginings for perhaps always. But we have explicit laws and rules for traveling through time, and how our motion through space affects it. In General Relativity, the possibilities of wormholes and closed-timelike-curves arises, opening up a whole new set of avenues for success. From Bill & Ted’s excellent adventure to Idiocracy, from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to Interstellar, and from Back to the Future to Groundhog Day, the science of time travel is one of the most fascinating ones out there.
Which movies get it right, and which ones get it egregiously wrong? Find out what my evaluations are on this edition of Ask Ethan!
