WENATCHEE — Some outlying areas from Badger Mountain to the Waterville Plateau and the Methow Valley got an inch or less of snow on Monday.
But after this morning, the likelihood of more white stuff drops considerably, says Greg Koch, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Spokane.
Mountain passes in North Central Washington are also white this morning, including Blewett, Stevens, Snoqualmie, the North Cascades Highway and the Loup Loup Pass between Twisp and Omak.
And in areas with no snow, there was rain — enough to break a record for Oct. 22 at Pangborn Memorial Airport, Koch said.
The airport on Monday measured .47 of an inch of rain, breaking the previous record for that date of .18 of an inch set in 1966, he said.
Reports from weather spotters showed most of the downtown areas, including Leavenworth, Wenatchee, Entiat and Omak, with no snow on Monday — or if there was snow, it melted, Koch said.
Temperatures are forecast to remain about 10 degrees below normal, with a high in Wenatchee today of 47 degrees, and will stay in the upper-40s for the rest of this week, he said.
“There’s another little weak system that’s expected to come in on Wednesday,” Koch said. That could bring trace amounts of snow to elevations above 2,000 feet, and surrounding mountains could get as much as 2 inches, he said.
