A cool, wet and active weather pattern will persist over the next few days as an upper level trough settles in over the Pacific Northwest. The center of the low is currently located over Vancouver Island and will continue to migrate southeastward through the day today. As it pushes into the area, multiple disturbances will wrap around the southern edge of the low and bring chances for precipitation today and especially tomorrow.

Northcentral Washington weather for today, increasing clouds with a 20% chance of scattered afternoon showers with high temperatures in the lower to mid-60’s.

By Thursday, the low will dig to the south and hover near the Pacific coast. Weather disturbances will continue to wrap around the low, increasing the potential for light to moderate precipitation and even a stray thunderstorm from east to west overnight tonight and through the day on Thursday.
