An unsettled spring time weather pattern will persist through the rest of the week with occasional rain and snow showers, breezy conditions and cooler than normal temperatures. Thursday looks like the only dry break day in a persistently active weather pattern.

Today, Northcentral Washington can expect diminishing showers with partly cloudy skies by afternoon with afternoon high temperatures much like Tuesday right around 50 degrees.

Thursday, as mentioned, a break in our wet weather is expected across the region as a short-wave flop-over ridge of high pressure sets up over the Inland Northwest. Thursday will feature increasing high and mid-level clouds after morning stratus break up as the ridge gets flattened, with a west wind 5-15 mph, afternoon highs tomorrow will be in the lower 50’s.

A moist, progressive Pacific zonal flow weather pattern will take shape on Friday and continue through the upcoming weekend. The Wenatchee Valley can expect mostly cloudy skies Friday with a 20% of showers developing and afternoon high temperatures in the mid 50’s.

Mostly cloudy skies for Saturday with a 20% chance of rain in the afternoon, expect mild high temperatures into the upper 50’s.

Sunday and Monday will be our wettest days with a 50% chance of rain on Sunday and a 60% chance of Monday, high temperatures both days in the upper 50’s. Still a 30% chance for showers on Tuesday with afternoon high temperatures near 60 degrees.
