A ridge of upper level high pressure will move over the region today bringing warmer and drier weather to the interior northwest. High temperatures for most places will hit the 60s… and will likely be the hottest day in the region for some time. North central Washington weather today will be mostly sunny and unusually warm with afternoon highs in the mid upper 60s.
A cold front will cross Friday as an upper trough sweeps across the region. The combination of the warm air in place and the moving cold front will cause windy conditions tomorrow, especially from the Wenatchee region across the Columbia Basin where gusts of 35-45 MPH will be common. Friday will be partly cloudy and windy with afternoon highs in the upper 50s.
After Friday’s frontal pass, the trough will continue to sit over the Pacific Northwest from Saturday into Monday, bringing an active northwesterly flow and abnormally cool temperatures. Saturday-Monday forecast calling for mostly cloudy skies with a 20% chance of showers each day and cool with highs of around 50 degrees. Expect windy conditions on Saturday as well as 15-25 mph.
We will see a small break on Tuesday with mostly sunny skies and highs near 50.
Cloudy with rain likely Wednesday with afternoon highs around 50 degrees.
