An elongated/stretched out low-pressure weather system sitting off the Washington coast will slowly move inland today and finally eject out of the region on Wednesday. This will keep the unsettled weather in the forecast today with drying from the northwest Wednesday afternoon. As the flow turns southwest today warm air advection will allow temperatures to increase with high temperatures warming into the upper 20’s and low to mid 30s across Northcentral Washington. Mostly Cloudy skies in the forecast for the Wenatchee Valley today with a chance of snow throughout the day and high temperatures near 30 degrees.

The cold front will drop southwest through the forecast area tonight and Wednesday and will stall out along the Oregon/Washington border Wednesday afternoon. We will see mostly sunny skies by Wednesday afternoon with afternoon high temperatures in the lower 30’s.

Our next weather system will move in on Thursday afternoon accompanied by a warm front that will move south throughout the day. Northcentral Washington can expect a 60% chance of snow on Thursday and a 70% chance on Thursday night with highs in the upper 20’s. The Wenatchee Valley could see around 4-6 inches of additional snow by Friday morning.

Cloudy and a little warmer on Friday with a 30% chance of snow we will see high temperatures in the lower to mid-30’s.

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday, we will see our weather pattern quiet down a bit with mostly cloudy skies each day and afternoon high temperatures around 30 degrees with overnight lows in the mid to upper teens.
