All right, pals, let’s go to the Pacific Northwest and see if we can’t stir up some weather.
At 953PM, PT, Yakima was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 72 degrees. Winds were brisk through the Yakima Valley, but that was simply the bluster of undulating terrain and not a sign of any significant weather to come.
A sharp, short waved ridge is moving through the Pacific Northwest over the next couple of days, and it will keep Yakima in the sun and warmth. An upper level trough will inch into the region late on Friday and may take a bit of the edge off the heat late in the day, but won’t significantly impact the weather otherwise.

More hot weather in Washington, but the fire danger is waning. Here is the national satellite, because the local imagery is just a map of Washington.
