Drier weather is expected to temporarily move into the Inland Northwest today and tonight as a weak high- pressure ridge builds over the area. The ridge will give way to yet another front for Thursday and Thursday night. This system will bring widespread precipitation to almost all of the Pacific Northwest however, significant rain and snow is not expected.
We have a 40% chance of a rain/snow mix on Thursday, a 20-30% chance of showers both Friday and Friday night and a 40% chance of mainly rain on Saturday. The weather pattern will remain active Friday and through Saturday with more rain and mountain snow expected again Saturday into early Sunday.
A period of dry, cool and sunny weather on Sunday and into early next week replaces the wet, unsettled pattern we’ve seen over the past month or so. Temperatures will be seasonal with highs in the mid-30’s to around 40.
