Well here we go. The last weekend of summer is upon us. Fortunately nature seems to be working with the proper playbook for this scenario. That means we have sunshine in the forecast for both days over the weekend.
Tonight's lows will be in the upper 50s and highs on Saturday will be in the upper 70s with some areas of morning clouds. Tailgating at Husky Stadium should be quite enjoyable.
Sunday's high temperatures will range into the mid 80s and it might feel a bit muggy a times. Again, tailgating should be just about perfect. Fall officially arrives Monday afternoon at around 2:30 p.m.. That being said, Monday still looks mostly sunny with high temperatures in the 70s.
However autumn will make a statement fairly quickly. The rain will be back as early as Tuesday night and it will linger through the rest of the week. Not only that, the temperatures will drop off into the mid 60s. Once again nature seems to have the playbook down pat.
Eastern Washington's high temperatures will range from the mid to upper 80s with plenty of sunshine from Pullman to Wenatchee and from Yakima to Spokane.
Finally, in the Cascades the freezing level will be about 12,000 feet which means afternoon pass Temperatures will be close to 70°.
All in all it is tough to ask for a better way to wrap up summer. That is not to say that there won't be any more sunny days, but the trend is definitely going to be in the other direction.
Have a terrific weekend!
Go Dawgs & Go Hawks.
