Weather 5-18-21


A strong cold front is pushing through eastern Washington this morning ushering in much cooler weather and windy conditions all across Northcentral Washington. Winds are increasing behind the front with gusts up to 25 mph. The strongest gusts will likely be this morning, but will remain elevated through the afternoon. The National weather Service has kept the potential for blowing dust in the forecast, mainly across the eastern Columbia Basin. Weather forecast today will be sunny with west winds 15-25 mph and gusty with much cooler high temperatures only in the lower to mid-60’s.

The upper level low will begin to dig south on Wednesday with sunny skies in the forecast but unseasonably cool temperatures with highs in the lower 60’s.

Weather models are in good agreement that a large low- pressure system will build over the Western U.S. tomorrow night through Thursday night bringing clouds, a 50% chance of showers late in the day and into early evening with highs in the mid 60’s.

An area of high pressure out in the Pacific will nudge in on Friday with sunny skies, less wind and afternoon high temperatures in the lower to mid-70’s.

Quiet weather in our forecast for Saturday, Sunday and Monday with mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures with highs each day generally in the mid to upper 70’s.
