Heat Wave Tapering Off
It may not seem like it, but there is some relief in store for those of us in Eastern Washington.
The National Weather Service says the heat wave peaked Tuesday with triple-digit highs, but the sweltering heat is starting to ease in Western Washington.
High temperatures recorded Monday across the state included: 89 at Sea-Tac Airport, 88 at Olympia, 96 at Pullman, 105 at Ephrata and 107 at Moses Lake.
On Tuesday, Sea-Tac Airport was a more moderate 83 and Olympia only hit 80 degrees.
East of the Cascades on Tuesday, Pasco hit 107 degrees, Yakima was 106 and Walla Walla recorded 105.
On Wednesday, Eastern Washington should get some relief with forecasts calling for highs in the 80s and 90s. West of the Cascades will also see temps in the 80s on Wednesday.
