Another day with unseasonably hot, above average temperatures near or at triple digits! Today though we see a few extra clouds overhead with scattered thunderstorms in the mix for the afternoon and this evening. Tomorrow look for another partly cloudy day with "cooler", if you can call it that, temperatures around 90 degrees.

Look for our string of 90-degree days to continue through the remainder of the work week. Before 80s and party sunny skies this weekend.

Record High Temperatures Sunday:

Lewiston 106 degrees (previous record 104 in 1985), Moses Lake 105 (103 in 1968), Wenatchee 103 (tied 103 in 1968), Pullman 97 (96 in 1985), Colville 101 (99 in 1968).

A Heat Advisory for the Lower Columbia Basin, Kittitas/Yakima Valley and Blue Mountains of Washington until 8pm Monday. Temperatures could range from 97 to 105 degrees today, with little or no relief overnight. The National Weather Service reminds folks that sun exposure can lead to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. They recommend strenuous activites be done early in the morning or later in the evening; know the signs of heat exhaustion; wear loose clothing, drink plenty of water; remember to take rest breaks, find shade. Know that heat stroke is an emergency, call 911.
