Wet Start, Dry & Windy Finish to NCW Weekend
WENATCHEE, WA – Despite our forecast of rain, it’s been a pretty dry day across much of North Central Washington. Considerable low and upper level clouds persisted throughout the region, and the state, for that matter today with temperatures across North Central Washington in the 50’s.
The low pressure system that’s been spinning off the coast is making its way on-shore. As we look at it, it’s really dragging a ton of moisture into Northern California today. Another round of rain will arrive Saturday morning followed by gusty winds Saturday afternoon into Sunday. A break in our wet and breezy weather pattern is expected Monday. Another series of moist fronts will begin Tuesday, bringing periods of rain and gusty winds into the end of next week.
So here’s our forecast…
Tonight – Increasing rains overnight with a tenth to a quarter inch of rain possible late, the nighttime low of 45.
Tomorrow – Heavy rains early in the day with another tenth to a quarter inch of rain possible, drying in the afternoon with winds from the west 10-to-15 miles per hour, gusting to 24 at times. Saturday’s high will be 58.
Tomorrow Night – A 30-percent chance of rain and gusty winds continuing, a low of 42.
Sunday – Partly sunny and very windy with winds westerly increasing through the day to 20-plus miles per hour, gusting to over 30mph in the afternoon. Sunday’s high should be 62.
Next week – Partly sunny and dry Monday with a high of 64. Rain returns Tuesday through Thursday with highs in the upper 50’s to around 60. Nighttime lows in the 40’s.
