Record Temperatures Hit Yakima
The Yakima Valley was hot this past weekend. Saturday’s temperature reached 99 degrees, almost beating the record 100-degree temperature for the day set in 1960. Plenty of people visited area lakes and rivers to cool off, and big crowds were reported at Clear Lake and Rimrock. Sunday’s temperature was 104, breaking the record of 100 set in 1985.
Today it will be another hot day in the valley, with temps forecasted to be 100 degrees. With the rising temps, local and state officials say the beginning of the wildfire season is underway.
