Today will be a relatively dry weather day over most of the Inland Northwest thanks to a weak ridge of high pressure over the central Rocky mountain states. The weather pattern will become much more active by early Saturday and into Sunday as a strong low-pressure system moves into the area. Since most of the precipitation will start during the afternoon hours tomorrow, we suspect most of it will fall as rain over the lower elevation locations south of Highway 2.
We have a 60% chance of rain mixed with snow tomorrow, which goes up to 70% on Saturday night. In the Wenatchee Valley, we might see around an inch of snow in some locations by Sunday morning. For the upcoming work-week, we will have a strong ridge of high pressure over the entire western US.
This weather pattern usually means we will see a prolonged period of fog, low clouds, and very small change in temperatures. Next week we will see high temperatures in the mid-30’s with overnight lows in the mid 20’s.
