Weather for Tuesday calling for low pressure off the coast pushed up against a shortwave ridge of high pressure over the inland northwest will bring some clouds to Northcentral Washington throughout the day with afternoon high temperatures today warming into the lower 80’s.
By tonight, the ridge axis migrates east into Montana and the resulting better established southwest flow allows weather disturbances associated with the low pressure system to move through it and over into Central and Eastern Washington. Mostly cloudy by tonight with a 30% chance of showers after 11:00 p.m.
On Wednesday, the Wenatchee Valley will see mostly cloudy skies with just a slight chance of sprinkles with highs in the lower 80’s.
Thursday through the upcoming weekend, our weather will be relatively benign for much of this period as an upper level ridge of high pressure over the Four-Corners region of the desert southwest becomes the dominant weather feature across all of the Western U.S. The Inland Northwest will reside under a drier southwest flow aloft. Expect mostly sunny skies each day with partly cloudy nights with afternoon high temperatures generally in the mid to upper 80’s perhaps some scattered 90 degree temperatures on Friday and Saturday with overnight low temperatures through the period in the lower to mid-60’s.
