The heat was expected to roast the Yakima Valley at the end of the most recent work week. Forecast highs for Yakima on Thursday and Friday were universally in the 90s, but thanks to the spurious winds of the inter-mountain west, that potential was only barely reached. It remained in the 80s on Thursday, and climbed up to 93 on Friday, but with temperatures dropping all the way to the mid 50s on both days of the forecast period, it never seemed as warm as had been feared. Weatherbug had the coolest forecast of all outlets, and won the forecast.
Actuals: Thursday – High 88, Low 55
Friday – High 93, Low 55
