AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for July 2 to July 8, 2016

Hot on Saturday; Pleasant Early Next Week

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

As we prepare to commemorate our nation's independence, the weather will be as you may expect around July 4th: warm and mainly dry. However, stifling heat is thankfully not in the cards. Hot temperatures on Saturday should give way to warm but more pleasant conditions by Monday, as a very weak system passes through the region. The only other impacts that are expected from the minor disturbance are breezy conditions and a slight chance of light showers in the west. Later next week, heat seems likely to return to Washington. Although it will remain very warm in general, no record breaking temperatures are in the forecast.

  • Hot on Saturday.
  • Cooler for early next week.
  • Possibly warmer later in the week.
