AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for July 30 to August 5, 2016

Hot in the East on Saturday; Becoming Cooler Early Next Week

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

Relative to this past week's oppressive temperatures, Saturday should be a cooler day in western areas, as marine air floods into the region. Although the winds of change will also impact eastern Washington, the majority of the associated cooling is likely to be delayed until Sunday, as temperatures slowly trend down toward normal. A weak low may bring some showers to western and northern areas early next week, but the main impact is expected to be cooler and breezy weather. Warmer conditions are favored later next week, although the specific pattern is uncertain, since Washington looks to remain in disputed territory between hot and comfortable weather.
