June finished off very warm in Yakima, with the high temperature peaking at 100 degrees on Wednesday, and cooling off a bit to 96 degrees on Thursday. Cooling off to the mid 90s. Yikes. The nice thing about this part of the country is that things usually do cool off nicely overnight thanks to low dew points and clear skies. Not this time. Heat struggled to radiate, and lows didn’t stray too far from 70. Oppressive. The National Weather Service had the top forecast for the day m but everyone had forecast lows in the low to mid 60s, meaning there weren’t any all stars in Yakima.
Actuals: Wednesday – High 100, Low 72
Thursday – High 96, Low 69
