Surface loop shows winds and cooler temperatures coming
We’ll start off our surface loop tonight with the cloud cover because it will really show what’s happening with the winds. Whenever the pressure gradients get close together like this, especially in front of a weather system moving in from the northwest, gives us very windy conditions. We’ll see sustained winds 20-to-25 over the next 24-hours with gusts to 40-miles an hour.
Our precipitation models still show a large front moving through on Sunday, bringing a good chance of lightning and showers. With the high temperatures we’ve had the past few days, that means an increasing risk of fire, so be very careful. Those showers will linger into Monday and Tuesday before things dry back out as we head towards Independence Day next Saturday.
Temperatures show near 100-in the Tri-Cities and mid-90’s for the Columbia Basin and Wenatchee today. Things will cool down considerably tomorrow and Sunday before warming back up into the 90’s again by the 4th of July.
