Colville Weather & Climate

Northeast Washingtion, near the Canadian border, generally has a humid continental climate. Cold air moving southward through Canada will occasionally cross the higher mountains into northern Washington. Although it receives a lot of rain, summers are quite dry. This region is occasionally subject to unusual and harsh weather due to an upper level trough that drives down cold Arctic air from the Canadian interior. This cold air mass can collide with a Gulf of Alaska cold front and create high winds, ice, snow, or heavy rains. Another weather phenomenon, known as the "Chinook wind," happens in the autumn and winter. Unusually warm and steady wind comes out of the south. It is essentially a reverse "Nor'Easter." A Chinook wind following a northeast wind can melt significant snow accumulations very quickly, pushing drainage systems to their limits.
