Weather 10-21-21


Northcentral Washington weather today will temporarily be under the influence of weak high pressure. Our region will have a break from precipitation under partly to mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures. East or southeast winds of 10 to 15 mph will blow across the Palouse, West Plains and Upper Columbia Basin much of the day in response to an approaching cold front. This moisture laden front will spread rain across western Washington during the afternoon and across the Cascades and Northcentral Washington during the evening hours.

Weather forecast today calling for mostly cloudy skies, light wind and mild temperatures with afternoon highs in the lower 60’s.

The slow moving, wet front will make Friday a rainy day for central and eastern Washington. At this time, it looks like central Washington will receive a fair dose of rain with the passage of this front. Friday forecast will be wet with cloudy skies and a 70% chance of rain with afternoon highs in the upper 50’s.

Moving into the weekend & week ahead, the long-winded series of storm systems will continue to bring more wet and cool weather through the Inland Northwest.

There will be a passing shortwave on Saturday before the arrival of the incoming weather system and digging trough of low pressure. Therefore, cloudy for Saturday with an 80% chance of rain and cooler with highs in the mid-50’s.
