Mostly clear skies and light winds have resulted in good radiational cooling this morning with lower basin and Wenatchee Valley temperatures cooling off enough for stratus formation and localized fog/haze development. Fog has also formed near warm water sources in the northern valleys and along the Spokane river and the Columbia River. This was added to the forecast for this morning, but expect rapid clearing throughout the morning.
Otherwise little change to the overall weather pattern for the next few days as high pressure remains firmly anchored in the Eastern Pacific with sunny skies today and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 50’s.
Expect clear, cool nights and warm mostly sunny days through Thursday with afternoon highs Wednesday in the mid 50’s with lower 50’s for Thursday. A weak cold front moves through as well on Thursday bringing increasing clouds.
Cloudy skies in our Friday forecast but the Pacific ridge of high pressure strengthens once again warming us up on Friday into the mid 50’s.
The weekend looks nice with partly to mostly cloudy skies Saturday and Sunday with afternoon high temperatures both days in the upper 50’s.
Stagnant air conditions in the form of low level inversions are expected to linger with surface winds rather light and more out from the northeast over the later part of the weekend and into the early part of the next workweek.
On Monday we will see mostly sunny skies with high temperatures above normal in the mid 50’s.
