The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for all of eastern Washington and northeast Oregon on Thursday. Temperatures will be warming up and the pressure will be dropping, which means gusty winds will be rolling through the Columbia Basin.
According to the Northwest Weather Service out of Pendleton, we are going to see some of our daytime highs shift from the 70's to the 50's due to a cold front that's being forecasted for the Columbia Basin region.
I'm not gonna lie, when people said it was hot here I thought they were over exaggerating. They may still be, from what I'm told this heatwave is extremely uncommon for Yakima let alone Washington State.
Sadly for me, I've got a broken air conditioner and a bunch of fans, lucky for you, I've figured out five simple life hacks to stay cool during the Yakima heat...
A few days ago the reports said we were in for some showers, dropping the temps into the lower 60's after enjoying ALMOST 90-degree heat for days last week so I checked the forecast and thankfully my warning to hold off on washing your car, rang true.
