A flat ridge of high pressure will nose into Northcentral Washington today resulting in a drying and warming weather trend along with light terrain driven winds. Afternoon high temperatures will warm mostly into the upper 80s to lower 90’s today, which is slightly above our normal high of 86 degrees.
We will see additional warming on Thursday and Friday with highs in the lower to mid-90s. A stretch of dry, warm and occasionally breezy summer weather is on tap for the next week. Latest weather models are in reasonably good agreement that no precipitation or dry thunderstorms will make an appearance for at least the next week. We could see slightly breezy conditions on Friday as a very weak cold front drops down from Canada which will cool us down a couple of degrees on Saturday with highs to start the weekend in the low 90’s.
High pressure intensifies once again on Sunday and will bring us sunny skies, light winds and afternoon high temperatures in the mid 90’s which will last through the middle part of next week.
