        Frost Forecast!

Wenatchee and
Okanogan Districts

Time Issued:  7 PM    

Date:  Saturday, April 30, 2016

Discussion for tonight:  April is going out on a warm note and this will likely be a record warm April in North Central Washington.  While temperatures have warmed some today, dewpoints are lower, running in the 20s.  Winds will be lighter so temperatures generally will be cooler tonight than last night.  Lighter wind cold spots could drop to the mid 30s, possibly just above freezing in coldest spots Sunday morning.     

Discussion for Sunday through Thursday night:   The high pressure ridge will bring warming temperatures into Tuesday, then it will shift far enough east to allow a more moist southerly flow to come over Washington.  This will bring cooler daytime temperatures and a chance of showers from later Tuesday into Thursday.  However, clouds and a mild southerly flow aloft should keep night temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
