Hopefully you enjoyed this week's pleasant weather, since it will soon be a distant memory. Hot and dry weather on Saturday should give way to potentially record-breaking heat by Sunday into early next week. Highs may peak at 105 degrees in the hottest parts of central Washington, while eastern areas around Pullman and Spokane could reach the mid 90s. The interior western region is expected to climb into the 80s to mid 90s on Sunday, while the coast is likely to escape the oppressive heat altogether. Night-time will offer little relief, as eastern areas fall mainly into the 60s for lows. The nature of when and how the heat wave ends is uncertain, but western areas should cool down by the middle of next week, before warming again late in the period. Eastern Washington is likely to remain quite toasty through much of the period, with only a slight temperature decrease possible around Wednesday.
