Wetter weather will prevail through the end of the week into the weekend as a large area of low pressure sends several waves of moisture into Northcentral Washington. Locally moderate to heavy rainfall is possible starting Thursday evening. There will also be a chance of thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening. Round 1 of our rainy weather is poised to move into the area tonight and will be wetter for the Wenatchee Valley and all of Northcentral Washington. Today should be dry with mostly sunny skies turning to mostly cloudy skies by afternoon with high temperatures in the lower 70’s. Then, a band of rain will move across the area from south-to-north after sunset tonight bringing the Wenatchee Valley an 80% chance of rain with overnight lows in the lower 50’s. Rainfall amounts should be between 0.10″ and 0.20″ for most everyone, with heavier amounts over the Cascades and northern mountains.

More rain showers on Thursday as one area of low pressure moves through and is replaced by another weather system bringing with it a 50% chance of the wet stuff with afternoon high temperatures in the lower to mid-70’s. Thursday night the wind picks up and the chance of rain goes up to 70% with northwest wind 10-15 mph with gusts as high as 22 mph as a strong cold front moves through Northcentral Washington.

For Friday, expect cloudy skies, windy conditions and a 60% chance of rain with high temperatures only in the lower 60’s. We’ll see a break from the wet weather on Saturday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 60’s.

Rain showers are likely on Sunday with afternoon highs warming into the upper 60’s to near 70 degrees.

Mostly cloudy skies and scattered rain showers for Monday and Tuesday next week with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 60’s to lower 70’s and overnight low temperatures near 50 degrees.
