An area of low pressure off the Pacific coast continues to send shortwaves of moisture our way which also led to the thunderstorm activity last night. Partly to mostly cloudy skies expected in our Northcentral Washington forecast for today with a 40% chance of scattered afternoon showers with high temperatures in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s.
By the weekend on Saturday and Sunday, the Low that has been impacting the region for the past few days is expected to pass through the Pacific Northwest along the Oregon/Washington border. The passing will allow for a cooler air to fill in behind the low and a drop in high temperatures of up to 20 degrees from the previous day’s highs. The Wenatchee Valley can expect mostly cloudy skies Saturday with a 20% chance of showers, breezy too with afternoon highs in the upper 60’s to lower 70’s. Partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures in the weather forecast for Sunday with afternoon highs in the upper 60’s to lower 70’s.
By next week, the cooler temperatures continue through the early part of next week warming up by Wednesday. Northcentral Washington will see mostly cloudy skies and a 40% chance of showers on Monday with highs in the upper 60’s.
More stable weather on tap for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as a ridge of high-pressure slides over the Pacific Northwest. Under partly cloudy skies, high temperatures on Tuesday will reach the lower 70’s, upper 70’s expected on Wednesday and afternoon highs on Thursday reaching around 80 degrees.
