AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for July 23 to July 29, 2016

Pleasant on Saturday Morning; Major Heat Wave Possible Later Next Week

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

Saturday morning is going to be refreshingly cool, but the pleasant temperatures will not last long. A steady warming trend should begin on Saturday, and by early next week, highs are likely to be in the 90s and low 100s east of the Cascades. Even hotter weather is possible later next week, including in western areas, where highs may climb into the 90s. For central Washington, daytime temperatures in the 105 to 110 degree range looks entirely plausible, although there is still time for the details to change. Initially, tolerable low temperatures are expected due to mainly clear skies and dry air; but eventually, even the mornings will become rather balmy. Overall, a hot, sunny, and fairly calm period is on the way.

  • Pleasant on Saturday morning, and then steady warming.
