The Tri-Cities is a
metropolitan area in the southeast corner of Washington,
consisting of Benton and Franklin counties. Four neighboring
cities are the principal cities for the metropolitan area:
Kennewick, Pasco, Richland and West Richland. Pasco is the seat of Franklin County, while the other
cities are located in Benton County. If the Tri-Cities were a
single city, it would be the fourth largest city in the state
of Washington, behind Seattle, Spokane, and Tacoma.
The Tri-Cities make up the largest metropolitan area in the
southeastern quadrant of Washington
The Tri-Cities are in a semi-arid climate, receiving an average
of 7 to 8 inches of precipitation every year. Winds
periodically exceed 30 mph when Chinook wind conditions exist.
There are 300 days of sunshine every year. Temperatures
range from as low as 10 įF in the winter to as high as 110 in
the summer, and even reached 115 įF in July 2006. The region
receives occasional snow most years. The large Cascade Mountain
Range to the west contributes to the semi-arid climate.
The Tri-Cities economy has historically been based on farming
and the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Recent years have seen the
region's booming wine industry second in size only to
California's Napa Valley. The production of Milk as well as
Apples, grapes, Cherries, Grain, Alfalfa and many other
Agriculture products keeps the Tri-Cities at the top of the list
as one of the most favorable places for fresh Farm products.
