Meteorological conditions are setting up for a dry and windy day. The Inland Northwest will be sandwiched between Canadian high pressure banked against the Continental Divide in Montana and deep low pressure over the Great Basin. Our current forecast of 40 to 45 mph gusts for the Upper Columbia Basin, Moses Lake area, and Waterville Plateau looks reasonable. A Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect today into early this evening for the Upper Columbia Basin, Moses Lake area, and the Waterville Plateau.

Wenatchee Valley weather today calling for sunny skies with north winds 5-15 mph and warmer with afternoon highs in the lower 60’s.

Tomorrow we can expect sunny skies, a north breeze and warmer temperatures with afternoon highs in the upper 60’s.

Thursday will mark the beginning of a major spring warming trend as an upper level high pressure ridge settles over the Pacific Northwest and southern British Columbia brining sunny skies and Northcentral Washington temperatures in the lower 70’s.

The warm-up continues on Saturday and Sunday with sunny skies each day and unseasonably warm temperatures with highs on Saturday in the upper 70’s with lower 80’s expected on Sunday. Our weather will stay unseasonably warm on Monday too with sunny skies and highs in the mid 70’s.
