“So, how’s the weather” may just be small talk in stagnant locales like Southern California or Northern Alaska, but in Richland Washington weather is a real-life conversation starter. The weather in Richland and the Tri-Cities area makes for great dialogue, even if there aren’t hurricane warnings, blizzards or blistering heat.
January and February
January and February find Richland in the chilliest months of the year. With highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s, the chance for freezes and the occasional flake of snow might fall is most likely these two months. With less than an inch of average precipitation, you won’t find buckets of snow falling, though. Don’t break out the parkas, as these temps are gone by March.
March and April
The highs in March and April are perfect for Easter egg hunts and planting flowers. Ranging from the high-50s to the mid-60s, and lows that hover around 40, it’s time to hit the links or parks for some outdoor fun in the early spring. And as the temperatures rise in March and April, the precipitation falls – 0.71 and 0.57 are the rainfall averages.
By May, the winter clothes should be packed away as everyone is dawning their shorts this time of year in Tri Cities. Highs in the 70s and lows in the upper-40s make for very pleasant, agreeable weather. May is slightly wetter than April, with an average precipitation level of 0.61 this month.
June and July
June and July find the children out of school and the golf courses in full swing. Early morning is a great time to get out and play, with AM temperatures in the lower-60s. By mid-day, the mercury is up into the 80s, making for a warm, but not hot, day. July is historically the hottest month, with the record of a balmy 113 degrees recorded in July, 1961. This is not typical, however. As the temperatures rise, the rainfall drops to less than a quarter-inch by July.
August and September
August is a spitting image of July, warm and dry. As the children begin piling into their new classes in September, however, the temperatures are beginning to drop to the 70s during the day. Precipitation begins to creep up, expect about 0.35 inches during the month of September.
Pumpkin carving, hay rides and sweaters are all the rage in October. Temperatures plummet pretty fast and by the tenth month the highs in Richland Washington are in the 60s and the lows are in the 40s. Expect more than half an inch of rain during October.
Turkey day in Richland is always chilly, with highs hanging around the mid- to upper-40s. Evenings in November find residents bundled for temperatures in the 30s. Expect over an inch of moisture during November, usually rain with the occasional snowflake or two. While November isn’t the coldest month, it is the wettest.
Come December, those living in Richland are settling into cold weather, with highs in the upper-30s and lows in the 20s. About an inch of precipitation falls in December, so rain and snow are not unheard of during this time. December is typically the only month any measurable snow falls, though usually just an inch or two at a time.
