Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Daroga State Park, located east of the mountains, receives significantly less rainfall than regions west of the mountains with an average annual precipitation of twelve inches.
Average summer temperatures are 94 degrees maximum and 50 degrees minimum. Because central Washington is landlocked and subject to winter winds, winter temperatures are much colder than those in western Washington.
Daroga State Park, in north central Washington, is located 18 miles north of East Wenatchee on State Highway 97, on the east bank of the Columbia River.
