Weather 1-9-19


A mix of winter weather will continue early this morning across the northern Columbia Basin, but will transition to just a rain threat for Northcentral Washington as the day progresses. Snow and maybe a bit of freezing rain will remain a threat near the Cascades through the day into tonight. We have a 70% chance of snow before noon then a chance of rain this afternoon with high temperatures in the mid 30’s. There is also a 70% chance of rain tonight with lows in the lower 30’s.

Snow chances will continue around the mountains Thursday, as Northcentral Washington starts to dry out and warm up. We will see partly cloudy skies Thursday with high temperatures in the lower 40’s.

The dry and mild weather pattern is also expected Friday into early next, but with an expanding fog threat. Patchy fog is expected on both Friday and Saturday mornings with skies turning partly cloudy by afternoon with highs both days near 40 degrees.

The weather forecast for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday also looks quiet with partly cloudy skies, light winds and afternoon high temperatures in the upper 30’s. An unsettled weather pattern is possible by the middle of next week.
