A quiet weather day is on tap today with sunny skies throughout most of the day with increasing high clouds in the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 40’s.

For Tuesday, a warm frontal boundary fed by a wide fetch of Pacific moisture advances on the Cascades and drops into the Inland Northwest. The mid-level flow pattern will for the most part remain westerly and serve to enhance the main precipitation shield over the higher Cascades. Northcentral Washington can expect a 20% chance of snow during the day Tuesday going up to a 40% chance on Tuesday night, highs in the lower to mid-30’s.

Wednesday, the Inland Northwest will remain in an active weather pattern, but temperatures start to warm up. Expect mostly cloudy skies Wednesday with a 40% chance of a rain/ snow mix with afternoon highs in the lower to mid-40’s.

On Thursday another subtle wave of moisture moves in and expands the precipitation threat again, while also bringing some low-grade breeziness outside of the mountains. The Wenatchee Valley can expect cloudy skies, a 70% chance of rain and warm afternoon highs into the upper 40’s to near 50 degrees.

Our weather will stay on the warm-side right through the upcoming weekend with a 30% chance of rain on Friday with highs in the upper 40’s, mostly sunny on Saturday with afternoon high temperatures in the mid-40’s and on Sunday, more of the same, with sunny skies and afternoon high temperatures in the mid-40’s.
