The upper level ridge has one more day of control over the weather across the Inland Northwest. The latest satellite imagery shows the center of the ridge axis nearing the Cascades shortly and pushing slowly toward the Washington/Idaho border by this afternoon. This should result in another dry and mild day across the region. Northcentral Washington today can expect mostly sunny skies, calm wind conditions with afternoon highs near 50 degrees.
Tonight through Saturday night, say goodbye to the ridge, at least temporarily as a weakening cold front moves into the Inland Northwest. As the weather system moves through Northcentral Washington on Saturday, expect mainly clouds from the front with most of the precipitation expected in Eastern Washington.
Mostly cloudy skies for both Saturday and Sunday with afternoon high temperatures in the lower 50’s on Saturday climbing to the mid and upper 50’s on Sunday.
The next weather system moves our way on Veterans Day Monday with once again just clouds associated with the weather disturbance and slightly cooler temperatures. Monday and Tuesday will be cloudy with high temperatures in the lower 50’s.
By Tuesday night this system will be moving out with lingering mountain showers and some clearing skies toward late evening. Tuesday`s highs will be close to Monday`s in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
Wednesday and Thursday look dry with weak high pressure over the region and even some patchy morning fog on Thursday morning. Highs early next week, above normal, into the lower 50’s.
