Local Alert Weather Forecast, Thu., Aug 28, 2014

The Deception Complex Fire burning to the southwest by about 70 miles near Oakridge Oregon has brought smoky and haze conditions to the area. Good news though, winds will shift to come from the north and help to blow the smoke out of our area.

For tonight, expect skies to remain mostly clear and smoke to be on the way out. Temperatures will fall to the mid to upper 40s tonight. Overall it will be very pleasant and comfortable. Winds will be from the northwest between 5 and 15 mph.

Friday will be cooler than Thursday. Highs will only warm up to the lower 80s. Winds will be from a northwesterly direction between 5 and 10 mph. This northerly wind should blow the smoke out of our region as well as be responsible for the drop in high temperatures.

The start of the Labor Day Holiday Weekend—Saturday—will be cool. Temperatures will be mostly in the 70s. Skies will be sunny in the morning with clouds building for the afternoon and evening hours. Overall it will be a pleasant day though. Showers and thunderstorms are a possibility, but for now, they appear to stay restricted to extreme northern Oregon.
