Welcome to our iffy weather time of year where it's variable at best. Sometimes hot, sometimes cold, sometimes warm, sometimes cool. Hard to know how to dress for the day when it starts out crisp and brisk and the same day ends sweltering.

Well, as soon as this weekend, Saturday especially, Yakima Valley is looking at temperatures getting up to the 90s already.


Hot enough for you?

I was looking at the extended forecast there's expected high of 90 degrees as soon as Saturday.

Sunny skies, too. No clouds to offer temporary shade.

If you happen to be doing outdoor activities, find your nearest shade spot (a tree will do) and stay hydrated. Especially in our dry, desert heat.

No, energy drinks don't count as hydration.

That should be the hottest day of the weekend, but it looks like we'll get more 90-degree temperatures next week as well with temperatures right around 90 just about every day next week.

Be prepared.

It is around that time of year where, though we'll have temperatures in the 90s, it could drop back to the lower 80s or upper 70s or still could rain before summer officially hits. Always nice to keep a pair of pants and a jacket handy as a just in case because, as you know, the weather in Yakima can change its mind at a moment's notice.

25 costliest hurricanes of all time

Although the full extent of damage caused by Hurricane Ian in the Southwest is still being realized, Ian is already being called one of the costliest storms to ever hit the U.S. Stacker took a look at NOAA data to extrapolate the costliest U.S. hurricanes of all time.  

LOOK: The most expensive weather and climate disasters in recent decades

Stacker ranked the most expensive climate disasters by the billions since 1980 by the total cost of all damages, adjusted for inflation, based on 2021 data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The list starts with Hurricane Sally, which caused $7.3 billion in damages in 2020, and ends with a devastating 2005 hurricane that caused $170 billion in damage and killed at least 1,833 people.
