A weak area of low pressure is sending impulses of snow flurries around the Waterville Plateau, Wenatchee Area, and Wenatchee Mountains including Blewett and Stevens Pass this morning. Most of the snow will stay south of I-90 this afternoon while areas north of I-90 should see a heavy presence of cloud cover.

Northcentral Washington weather for today, cloudy with an isolated snow flurry or two with afternoon highs in the mid 30’s. North winds could become quite breezy tonight and Friday down the Okanogan Valley and Western Columbia Basin where gusts of 20-30 mph will be possible. The windiest locations would be around Lake Omak, Waterville, and across Banks Lake into Ephrata.

Expect quiet weather for both Friday and Saturday with mostly sunny to sunny skies, light wind and afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 30’s on Friday, mid 30’s for Saturday.

By Sunday, the area will become dominated by colder long-wave trough, with periodic chances for snow and temperatures slightly below normal. Snow chances move into the Cascades overnight Saturday into Sunday morning as the weather front moves in. The Columbia Basin and Wenatchee Valley will see cloudy skies Sunday with a 40% chance of light snow and chilly, with afternoon high temperatures around the freezing mark with overnight lows Saturday in the upper teens.

Partly sunny Monday with highs in the mid 30’s and by Tuesday and Wednesday next week we will see another weak weather system move in bringing just a slight chance for snow flurries with highs in the lower to mid 30’s.
