Climate - The climate of Washington varies within each region. The Cascades split the state and alter the weather patterns. The mountains receive large amounts of wet, heavy snow from October through May. These peaks remain snow covered throughout the year. The terrain east of the mountains receives approximately 12 inches of rainfall per year, generally much less than west of the mountains. Since the area east of the mountains is landlocked, temperatures in this region are lower during the winter months. Frequent winds coming down from the mountains also contribute to the low temperatures of eastern Washington.

Due to the coastal geography, western Washington is primarily temperate. The proximity to the ocean stabilizes the climate, making extreme temperatures very rare. The area receives large amounts of precipitation from Pacific rain and snow storms.

Location - Rimrock Lake is located off U.S. 12 in the Cascades about 40 miles west of Yakima. It is located near Clear Lake.

Report: Rimrock Lake is one beautiful and hot place in Washington. You can either take you r boat or Jet Ski out, go fishing or even swimming but the water is a bit chilly! Last time that I was there, we all went fishing and my son caught a carp and me and my husband caught a nice rainbow and a cut throat just off the shore. Not to mention, there is not too many people there to get in your way.
