AgWeatherNet Weekly Weather Outlook for May 26 to June 1, 2018

Pleasant on Saturday; From Hot to Cooler Next Week

Nic Loyd, Meteorologist, 509-786-9357

The combination of low pressure moving inland to our south and a push of cooler air to the north should provide enough onshore flow to briefly cool the region on Saturday. Despite the westerly breezes, conditions will be mainly dry and pleasant. However, the heat looks to return by Monday, as temperatures are set to climb back into the 80s and 90s.

A weather system trekking mostly to our north is expected to initiate a transition toward cooler and more normal conditions by the middle of next week. Increased winds are likely for early next week, and isolated showers are possible by Tuesday night or Wednesday for far eastern Washington. A more benign but perhaps slightly unsettled pattern may develop later in the period, with some daytime warming and potentially decreasing winds. Overall, a changeable yet mainly dry and periodically breezy interval is anticipated in the coming days.


Key Points:

  • Pleasant and breezy on Saturday, and then hot and dry by Monday.
  • Cooler for mid next week, with breezes and isolated showers.
  • Warmer days and more benign conditions possible by next Friday.
