WENATCHEE — Enjoy it while you can. Today’s sunny weather isn’t going to last, the National Weather Service says.
By Tuesday, cloudy skies are forecast throughout North Central Washington. And precipitation — either rain or snow, depending on where you live — will return Wednesday night, said meteorologist Steve Bodner.
Clear weather Sunday brought some of the region’s first really cold weather. Temperatures dipped to 27 degrees at Pangborn Memorial Airport early this morning, Bodner said. Outlying areas dropped to the teens, with Winthrop seeing some of the coldest temperatures at 15 degrees early today.
Bodner said higher elevations, including the Methow Valley and the Cascade passes, may get a few inches of new snow Wednesday night. Areas lower than 2,500 feet will probably get rain, he said.
Rain will continue across the region on Thursday and Friday with the snow level rising to 4,000 feet, he said.
Bodner said many people have commented that this November has felt particularly rainy. But so far, it’s only the 19th rainiest at Pangborn since records began there in 1959.
November is typically one of our rainiest months, he said.
