Weather Authority Forecast

Today's Forecast

Weather Authority Forecast for Wednesday, July 30th @ 6:00 a.m.

Good morning,

After a record breaking day around the region, today will be another hot one; it's possible we could also set another record in some spots too. Expect daytime highs in the upper 90s (Yakima Valley) to 100°-105° (Columbia Basin), with mostly sunny skies and calm winds. 

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory that is not expected to expire until tonight at 9:00 p.m. A Fire Weather Watch goes into effect today at 1:00 p.m., for areas near the Blue Mountains and central and northeastern Oregon, due to the potential for thunderstorms in those areas. 

High pressure is firmly established over us and will keep us mostly dry and quite warm. There is a slight chance for thunderstorms on Friday as Monsoonal moisture from the south continues to make its way north.

Stay safe out there and have a great evening!
- Zac
