Weather 1-19-22


A moist weather system will arrive overnight bringing widespread precipitation to our area and some locally gusty winds in the Columbia Basin and Waterville Plateau. Northcentral Washington weather today will be cloudy and chilly with afternoon high temperatures in the lower 30’s. After midnight, we will see a 60% chance of snow and possibly freezing rain with little or no accumulation expected. Thursday morning will be wet as well with a 60% chance of mainly morning rain showers and warmer by afternoon with high temperatures in the lower 40’s.

By Friday and through the weekend, most of the previous weather system and widespread wintery weather will be on its way out. High pressure starts to nose into the region from the west Friday brining mostly sunny skies and unseasonably warm temperatures with highs in the low 40’s.

High pressure will remain in control of our weather from Saturday through next Tuesday with a.m. fog each morning this weekend, cooler, with partly cloudy skies and highs both Saturday and Sunday in the mid-30’s.

Monday and Tuesday next week look quiet with partly cloudy skies both days and slightly warmer with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 30’s.
