Northcentral Washington will be void of any significant weather systems over the next several days as high pressure passes through aloft. The most impactful weather will be heavy frost and areas of freezing fog potentially creating slick travel conditions and low visibility. On Monday, temperatures warmed into the mid to upper 40s around Omak, Moses Lake, and Wenatchee. This does not seem to be the case today with less wind and a much cooler start to the day. Weather for the Columbia Basin and Wenatchee Valley today calling for partly cloudy skies with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 30’s to lower 40’s.

On Wednesday expect a few more clouds in the forecast with highs tomorrow once again in the upper 30’s to near 40 degrees.

We will see a fairly drastic shift in the longwave weather pattern starting around Thursday featuring an amplified ridge of high pressure over the Eastern Pacific. This will shift our storm track from the warmer and wet southwest trajectory toward a cooler, and snowier northwest trajectory. This will still make for a quiet weather pattern in Northcentral Washington with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies Thursday, Friday and Saturday with afternoon high temperatures each day generally in mid to upper 30’s.

A fairly weak weather system moves in on Sunday and Sunday night with a 30% chance of snow and much cooler temperatures with highs on Sunday only in the lower 30’s.

Partly cloudy skies for Monday as the storm moves east and a little warmer with highs in the mid 30’s.
