The upper level ridge will return with more intensity today behind yesterday`s weak upper level disturbance. Under sunny skies and light wind, we can expect Northcentral Washington high temperatures to be in the upper 60’s.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday, weather models continue to show the upper ridge dominating our weather pattern with a continuation of mostly clear skies, light winds, cool mornings, and mild afternoons with highs mainly in the upper 60’s to near 70 degrees each day.
The ridge begins to shift east on Tuesday but dry conditions should prevail for most of the day as an area of low-pressure moves into Western Washington. The front moves into Northcentral Washington Tuesday night bringing an increase in cloudiness.
A stronger weather system moves in Wednesday, Wednesday night and Thursday. This system will likely bring rain and high mountain snow to the Cascades, with a good chance of rain almost statewide. In the Wenatchee Valley there is a 30% chance of showers on Wednesday, a 40% chance on Wednesday night and up to a 50% chance of rain on Thursday. Temperatures will slowly cool down throughout next week with only upper 50’s expected by next week.
