The potent cold front associated with our persistent slug of moisture and pineapple express weather pattern is on our doorsteps early this morning as the extremely strong winds continue to push through Eastern Washington. Pangborn Airport in East Wenatchee reported a 54-mph wind gust early this morning while Moses lake reported a gust of 51 mph. Much less wind throughout the day today in our weather with mostly sunny skies by this afternoon with high temperatures between 40-45 degrees.

Not much has changed for the extended weather forecast period with a benign, quiet pattern setting up across the Pacific Northwest. Still looking at much less active conditions with a chance for mainly light mountain snow Friday, Sunday, and Tuesday.

Under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies Thursday through Saturday, Northcentral Washington can expect afternoon high temperatures in the upper 30’s to near 40 degrees.

Our unseasonably mild southwest flow of air amplifies on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday under partly cloudy skies, afternoon highs will climb into the lower to mid-40’s.
