High pressure off the coast will strengthen over the Inland Northwest today. Temperatures will warm up resulting in more stability, drier conditions, and lighter winds. Northcentral Washington weather today will be sunny and mild with afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 50’s.

A compact low-pressure system will swing through on Wednesday riding down the backside of the ridge bringing cloudy skies tomorrow with a 40% chance of rain with highs in the mid 50’s.

Behind Wednesday`s weather system, the high pressure ridge amplifies over the Eastern Pacific and the Polar jet stream backs away from northwest to north over the Pac Northwest. Weather models remain in good agreement of drier and warmer weather going into Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Our weather for all three days calling for mostly sunny skies and a slight warm-up each day with highs Thursday in the mid to upper 50’s, 60 degrees for Friday and into the lower to mid-60’s on Saturday.

A very weak weather system will move in on Sunday bringing a slight chance of late evening showers with highs in the lower 60’s.

Back to the sunshine on Monday and slightly cooler with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 50’s.
