        Frost Forecast!

Wenatchee and
Okanogan Districts

Time Issued:  7 PM    

Date:  Thursday, March 26, 2015


Discussion for tonight:  Temperatures warmed into the low 70s in warmer locations of the Wenatchee district today but were cooler in the Okanogan.  Although skies will be mostly clear tonight, temperatures, even in the Okanogan, should hold above freezing, running in the upper 30s and 40s.

Discussion for Friday through Monday night:  Temperatures will peak Friday and may reach record daytime highs in some areas.  Then a fast cold front comes in the from the Pacific Friday night to bring in cooler air for the weekend.  Wind and clouds should keep temperatures up in most areas Friday night.  Saturday night could be cooler but there is a chance for areas of high clouds to come over and help to keep temperatures up for Sunday morning.  The next significant weather event occurs Monday night as another fairly strong cold front moves in from off the Pacific leading in colder air for the middle part of next week.
