Light rain has fallen so far this morning from the Cascades to Moses Lake, Wenatchee and Omak. Amounts have been expectedly light from .01 to .06 inches. As the weather system pushes through, we are looking at a cloudy and grey day with light precipitation in the eastern third of Washington into this afternoon. Northcentral Washington weather today will be partly to mostly cloudy and unseasonably cool with high temperatures in the mid-50’s.
On Thursday, the flow pattern starts to shift showers northward with another front re-energizing rain and higher mountain snow on the Cascade crest. At the same time, a slowly building high pressure ridge nudges into the region with moisture streaming over top. Dry for us tomorrow with partly cloudy skies and warmer temperatures with highs near 60 degrees.
The weak ridge will stay in place on Friday and Saturday as well with partly to mostly cloudy skies each day and warmer with highs in the lower 60’s.
By Sunday, a low from the Gulf of Alaska will drop southward digging a trough into the Pacific Northwest. This will be a wet and cool weather system with another chance for light precipitation across much of the Inland Northwest. Forecast for Sunday calling for cloudy skies, a 40% chance of showers with highs in the lower 60’s.
Weather forecast for Monday and Tuesday will be quiet with mostly sunny skies each day and afternoon highs in the lower 60’s.
