A strong winter weather system will bring heavy snow to much of the Inland Northwest today. There is a winter weather advisory in place for most of Northcentral Washington with 1-3 inches of snow expected. Blowing and drifting snow could also be a concern for the Columbia Basin from Moses Lake over to Ritzville so travel on I-90 could be affected. For the Wenatchee Valley today expect cloudy skies with light morning snow showers turning to moderately heavy snow by this afternoon with up to 3” possible, highs today in the lower to mid-30’s.

Snow mixed with rain remains a threat Saturday as a weak warm front moves through bringing a 40% chance of rain mixed with snow and afternoon high temperatures in the upper 30’s.

Another stronger weather system with snow moves our way on Sunday with a 60% chance of snow and breezy conditions out of the west and gusty at times, highs in the mid 30’s.

Cold arctic air moves into the area on Monday with high temperatures under mostly cloudy skies in the mid 20’s. Look for very cold temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday with cloudy skies both days, a 40% chance of snow on Wednesday and afternoon highs only in the mid-teens with overnight low temperatures in the single digits. More snow is expected on Thursday with a 40% chance and slightly warmer temperatures too into the lower 20’s.
