Wet Weather Ahead for All of Washington

WENATCHEE, WA – The rains held off for the most part over North Central Washington during the day today, but are expected to move in this evening.

Not a bad day across the area with dry conditions and temperatures around 50, low 50’s for the Wenatchee Valley. A warm, wet storm system is slowly moving into the northwest.
Here you see light and variable winds across most of Washington and the low sitting off the coast, which is actually sucking winds off-shore in a counter-clockwise rotation. Precipitation was light and fell in the form of light rain in the mountains and some light snow in the higher elevations. The cloud cover was high and light over Eastern Washington with a thickening front moving in over Western Washington. The radar for the Northwest shows the wet, storm front moving slowly over the coast and into the interior as the day progressed.

So what does that mean? Wet weather will continue through the weekend over the entire region with perhaps a small, brief break during part of the day on Friday. By the weekend, minor flooding issues may develop.

Tonight – 30-percent chance of rain with clouds and a low of 41
Tomorrow – Rain likely with a high of 54.
Tomorrow Night – Showers tapering off with a low of 41.
Friday – Cloudy with a slight chance of showers, a high of 56.
Saturday – Rain mainly before Noon, heavy at times, high of 58.
Sunday – Slight chance of rain, early, then mostly cloudy, high of 59.
