Our weather will be changing slightly as rain and snow returns to portions of the Inland Northwest, especially tonight into Saturday. Increasing clouds in our Friday forecast with afternoon high temperatures in the mid 50’s.
However, it’s tonight into Saturday that precipitation becomes more likely as the cold front pushes further inland and interacts with some of the deepest moisture of the system, as well as the support of mid-level disturbances riding along that front. Northcentral Washington will see a 30% chance of rain showers tonight with overnight lows in the mid 30’s and a 20% chance of scattered showers Saturday morning with clearing during the day and afternoon highs cooling down into the upper 40’s.
Following Saturday`s frontal passage the upper trough axis swings across the region on Sunday with sunny skies, calm wind conditions and afternoon highs normal for this time of year into the upper 40’s. Sunny skies for
Monday right through the end of the week with sunny skies and a slow warming trend each day. Afternoon high temperatures on Monday in the lower 50’s, mid 50’s for Tuesday and upper 50’s to near 60 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday.
