AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for July 9 to July 15, 2016

Unsettled This Weekend; Becoming Warmer Later Next Week

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

As a low pressure area moves across the state, there will be a chance of showers this weekend, except only a slight chance in central Washington. Conditions over the next few days should be periodically breezy and temperatures are likely to be delightful and fairly moderate. Another weak system is possible for early next week, although it may be less impactful than this weekend's system. The main effect would be delaying the upcoming warm up until later in the period. The weather is expected to be hotter and mainly sunny later next week, but not exceptionally hot for early to mid July.
