Weather 5-21-21


A low-pressure weather system will continue to press to the Southwest drawing drier, cool air into the eastern part of the Inland Northwest from the north. Here in Northcentral Washington expect sunny skies, a northwest breeze 5-15 mph and warmer with afternoon highs in the lower 70’s.

Saturday’s weather looks nice too with increasing clouds late in the day, a light northwest breeze and high temperatures in the lower to mid-70’s. There could also be an isolated shower or two late Saturday night.

Weather models are in good agreement that the upper level low over Nevada will sweep across the Inland Northwest Sunday and into Monday as it makes a northeast trek out of the region. Winds will shift back to the southwest with breezy conditions across the Wenatchee Valley and Columbia Basin Sunday afternoon with gusts around 25 to 35 mph, high temperatures in the mid-70’s.

Monday through Wednesday our weather will be under a western zonal flow providing partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies with afternoon high temperatures right around normal generally into the mid 70’s.

Unsettled weather will return on Thursday as a weak cold front looks to move through the Pacific Northwest. The Columbia Basin and Wenatchee Valley will see partly cloudy skies with a 20% of showers and windy with afternoon highs in the mid 70’s.
