As advertised, the weather system that is moving through Oregon kicked up our winds last night and dropped around 2” of new snow in the Wenatchee Valley overnight and this morning. Wind will kick back up this afternoon 15-20 mph out of the northeast with gusts as high as 30 mph. There is also an 80% chance of additional snow today and tonight with highs in the lower 30’s. As a result of the snow and wind, travel conditions on this big travel day will deteriorate as the day wears on and in response a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the East Slopes of the Cascades, Waterville Plateau and the Wenatchee Valley valid now through midnight tonight.
For Thanksgiving Thursday, we have a 30% chance of lingering snow showers in the morning giving way to partly cloudy skies by afternoon with highs tomorrow around 30 degrees.
By Friday and Saturday, a weak ridge of high pressure moves in bringing us sunny skies but cold temperatures with afternoon highs only around 30 degrees.
A weak weather system slides into the Inland Northwest on Sunday and Monday with a slight chance for snow flurries each day and highs by Monday warming into the mid 30’s. Even warmer for Tuesday next week with mostly cloudy skies afternoon high temperatures will climb back to normal for this time of year into the mid and upper 30’s.
