While Northern and Eastern Washington continue to see showers and thunderstorms, Northcentral Washington is under a strong northwesterly weather flow which will once again bring plenty of wind to the Columbia Basin and Wenatchee Valley today.
Under sunny skies, we will see northwest winds 15-25 mph with gusts as high as 35 mph with afternoon high temperatures today in the upper 70’s. This will certainly cause elevated fire weather concerns for grasses.
The strong northwest flow will continue on Wednesday as well with mostly sunny skies, maybe an isolated shower and high temperatures about 10 degrees below normal int eh mid 70’s.
A quiet weather day is expected for Thursday with mostly sunny skies, lighter winds and afternoon high temperatures near 80 degrees.
A ridge of high pressure begins to build on Friday bringing sunny skies, light winds and much warmer temperatures into the mid 80’s.
Expect the same weather pattern in Northcentral Washington on Independence Day Saturday and on Sunday and Monday as well with mostly sunny skies each day and afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 80’s.
