Weather today will be a fairly seasonal, warm day with rather quiet conditions across central and eastern Washington. We have quite the onslaught of persistent, active weather ahead for the next several days, so today would be a good day to get anything done outdoors that might be impacted by wind and rain. Northcentral Washington weather for today will be sunny and nice, warmer too, with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s.
On Wednesday, an upper level low-pressure trough will slide into the Vancouver Island area and track east along the Canadian border. While this feature will bring in a good deal of moisture into Northern Washington State, near 1.0 inch at Omak and 0.8 inches at Spokane), most of the better dynamics will be halted at the Cascade crest or just on the eastern slopes. Weather forecast tomorrow calling for partly cloudy skies and breezy conditions, cooler too, with highs in the lower 70’s.
After a chilly start to the day on Thursday, expect partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures with highs in the upper 60’s.
A deepening trough of low pressure will push a low through the region bringing breezy winds and widespread showers on Friday and Saturday. Weather models are bringing a warm front through the Pacific Northwest late Friday morning followed by a cold front early Saturday morning. This system is showing potential for decent rain amounts across the Inland Northwest through the weekend. Weather for Friday and Saturday will be cloudy, cool and wet with an 80% chance of rain Friday and a 60% chance Saturday with high temperatures in the upper 60’s.
Sunday and Monday will feature partly cloudy skies with a chance for lingering showers Sunday, highs generally in the upper 60’s.
