Our weather continues to feature a ridge of high pressure that’s continuing to build over the Pacific Northwest. For today into the evening, a dry northwest flow will prevail with plenty of sunshine and light winds with afternoon high temperatures around 10 degrees above normal into the lower to mid- 90’s across Northcentral Washington.

Overnight into Thursday, a weak shortwave weather system will ride up the ridge bringing an increase in moisture especially to southern and south central Washington by Thursday afternoon. The Wenatchee Valley will just see a few sprinkles or light showers while measureable precipitation will be spotty. The cloud deck should keep temperatures down a bit on Thursday as well with highs around 90 degrees.

On Friday, a dry, warm ridge of high pressure will engulf Northcentral Washington with sunny skies and high temperatures near 90.

More of the same for Sunday and Labor Day Monday with lots of sunshine and slightly cooler daytime highs in the mid to upper 80’s. Tuesday looks to be partly cloudy with afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 80’s.
