This morning a mid-level trough of low pressure will be shifting across Eastern Washington, while a ridge of high pressure starts to build in from the west. Northcentral Washington weather today will be sunny on this Veterans Day with a light and variable wind, high temperatures this afternoon will generally be in the mid 40’s. Going into tonight, the low clouds are expected to expand out again, pushing further west-northwest to the Wenatchee Valley and deeper Columbia Basin bringing with it the threat of fog.

For Thursday and especially Thursday night, the next weather system moves in. This will lead to expanding clouds throughout the region, with the threat of snow coming into the Cascades and northern mountains in the afternoon. By Thursday evening into the overnight, snow and rain chances expand across the region. Tomorrow, Northcentral Washington can expect increasing clouds with a 60% chance of rain turning to a rain/snow mix by tomorrow night, high temperatures in the upper 30’s to near 40 degrees.
