AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for September 23 to September 29, 2017

Warm and Dry Weather Returns

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

As promised, the recent pattern change may have marked the conclusion of extreme heat for 2017, but it certainly did not signal the permanent arrival of autumn. The all-too-familiar warmer and drier than normal conditions are poised to return next week, as high pressure rebuilds across the region.

Despite calmer and drier weather, cool and crisp morning temperatures will linger this weekend. However, next week looks to be quite warm, as steadily increasing temperatures are likely through much of the period. Aside from some clouds and perhaps a few showers clipping northwestern areas around Monday morning, active weather in the form of rain or wind is generally not expected. Warm spots should be above 80 degrees in the afternoon by the middle of next week. Increasingly unsettled weather is possible by next Friday, but it is too early to say for certain. Overall, delightful weather is anticipated during the next seven days, and we should enjoy this pleasant, albeit circuitous, transition into autumn.
