Good Evening!

It was sunny and hot again in our area, but we ended up with highs running about 5 degrees cooler than yesterday.  Our afternoon highs topped out in the low to mid 90s.

Red Flag Warning: Until 9 PM Friday

- High Fire Danger

- W 10-15 Gusts 20-35 (locally 40 mph in Kittitas Valley)

- No Outdoor Burning

- Fires Spread Rapidly

A dry cool front in British Columbia will swing through the area Friday with another round of cooler air and breezy winds spilling through the Cascades gaps.  Fire danger will remain high through Saturday.  Weekend temperatures upper 80s-mid 90s. 

Strong westerly winds through the Columbia River Gorge is pushing the smoke from the Substation Fire (The Dalles) into the foothills where it is being trapped by the Blues.  As a result air quality is moderate to unhealthy from Pendleton, OR to Dayton WA.   Skies will continue to be a bit hazy or a little smoky as well.

Long range models continue to show another heat wave starting next Monday and lasting through Water Follies Weekend with highs 100-107. 

Stay safe & cool and have a great evening!
