Weather 3-7-18


After a mostly sunny start to our Wednesday with very mild high temperatures, our next weather system is nearing the Pacific Coast and is moving in quickly from the Southwest. While it`s nicely wrapped up, it`s also pretty ragged which means any shower activity late today will be scattered. The high clouds from that weather system will start to spread into the area this afternoon but they won`t be enough to interrupt an otherwise mostly sunny day. The main precipitation from this system will actually come with the upper low itself on Thursday afternoon and will mainly be in the form of scattered showers rather than widespread all-day rain.

We have 40% chance of showers tonight and on Thursday. Behind this weather system on Friday we will see some breezy conditions in the Wenatchee Valley with winds around 10-20 mph gusting up to 25 mph. But, mountain travel on Thursday night and Friday could be hazardous with winds expected to reach 60-75 mph.

We will see the beginning of a very nice weather pattern by this weekend with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-50’s on Saturday and Sunday warming to the upper 50’s to around 60 degrees on Monday and Tuesday.
