Yakima Poised To Set Record High Temperature Today
While the last two winters in the Yakima Valley have been irregularly harsh, this year has been just as unseasonably mild.
Little snowfall and now record-high temperatures on early February. Today's forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies and a daytime high temp of 68 degrees which would shatter the previous high on this date of 58 set in 1995.
The National Weather Service has also issued a wind advisory from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. You can anticipate winds between 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph, peaking peak this afternoon.
The City of Yakima also cautions that if you lose power to report it to Pacific Power by calling 1-877-508-5088. If you witness downed power line, call 911 immediately and then call PP&L's toll-free power outage line.
The official temp is recorded at the Yakima Air Terminal.
