Today will bring warmer temperatures due to a southwest flow over the area ahead of an upper-level weather system moving across southern Canada. That same southwest flow will also bring us some haze and smoke from fires burning in Oregon and California. Under mostly sunny skies and light wind, Northcentral Washington will see afternoon highs mainly in the lower 80’s.

Thursday, the upper trough moves over the region but with limited moisture and instability. The main impact from this will be increased mid-level cloud cover Thursday morning. Breezy winds are also expected on the back side of this wave Thursday afternoon 5-15 mph. Weather tomorrow will be partly cloudy and slightly cooler with a 20% chance for isolated evening showers, highs in the upper 70’s.

The wind switches back to the northwest Friday keeping our temperatures cooler than normal with highs in the upper 70’s.

A ridge of high pressure will build into the region on Saturday bringing another shot of warmer than normal temperatures and some wind early next week. Weather for Saturday and Sunday will be very summer-like with sunny skies each day and afternoon highs between 85-90 degrees.

Another trough will begin to press into the Pacific Northwest overnight Monday and will bring slightly cooler temperatures and windy conditions on both Monday and Tuesday with high temperatures mainly in the mid to upper 80’s.
