Record High Temperatures In February

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- It hardly feels like winter anymore, all over our area we've seen oddly warm temperatures for this time of year. 

According to the National Weather Service Yakima hit a record high temperature of 67 degrees on Saturday. 

They looked at the daily average temperatures from the first 13 days of February, dating back to the 1960's; this February is looking to be one of the warmest Februarys the National Weather Service has on record. 

With this beautiful weather we checked in with a local golf course to see how business is turning out for them. 

“This year we opened about two weeks earlier than we did last year because of the weather. This weather brings the golfers out so it's perfect for us,” Westwood West manager Ron Luttrell told KNDO.

In Kennewick temperatures this February averaged around 45 degrees and in Walla Walla they averaged 49 degrees.

The National Weather Service told us they haven't seen temperatures this high since 1961. Yakima's highs on Saturday broke the previous record set in 1982.
