Northcentral Washington can expect a fairly quiet weather Thursday as high pressure and dry air move into the region. Under sunny skies, we will see Afternoon high temperatures climb into the mid 30’s. By tonight, we will see increasing clouds as the next weather system begins to push through the region starting Friday morning.

The low-pressure system to our north will bring another round of snow to our area. In the Wenatchee Valley, we have a 60% chance of snow on Friday with only around an inch of accumulation expected with high temperatures near 30 degrees. The heaviest amounts of snow are expected in the Cascades with the potential of around 6 to 10 inches.

As we get into the weekend on Saturday, a large area of high pressure positioned off the coast will continue to provide a cold northerly flow along its east edge as well as a chance for scattered snow showers. Under mostly cloudy skies Saturday we will have a 50% chance of scattered snow showers with highs around 30.

Sunday right through the middle part of next week, a northerly wind will cool us off with anywhere between a 20 and 40% chance of snow through Wednesday with afternoon high temperatures generally in the mid to upper 20’s and overnight low temperatures in the mid to upper teens.
