Yakima, Washington

Today we head off to the valleys of the Pacific Northwest! Specifically, Yakima Valley, where over 3/4 of the hops grown in the US are located. Who knew?!

At 853pm PST, the temperature at Yakima, WA was 7 degrees under fair skies. High pressure is sitting over the Pacific Northwest/Northern Rockies, and really isn’t budging much over the next few days. One area of low pressure attempts to make a run at the region, but gets deflected southward by the dome of high pressure. This lack of activity has lead to an Air Stagnation Advisory for the region all the way through Monday. So unfortunately, while it’ll be fairly dry for the next couple of days, it still won’t be very pleasant outside, especially with morning lows dipping into the single digits.

Here we see a very active western US and also the system spewing ice all over the Central US. Most of what is moving over the Pac NW though is mainly high-level clouds, so Yakima will be spared through the weekend.
