Local Alert Weather Forecast, Sun., Mar. 29, 2015
A beautiful end to our weekend and Spring Break. Highs ranged from the upper 60s to low 70s with plenty of sunshine and slight breeze. I hope you all had a fantastic day in the sunshine-- but there is some more on the way! For tonight, calm winds and lows in the low 30s with partly cloudy skies.
The start to the week will be a sunny and warm one. Expect high temperatures very similar to today, if not slightly warmer. Most of us will see 70s but winds in the afternoon will pick up out of the West at 10-15 MPH. This wind is ahead of a storm system that will either hit late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. Our highest chance of rain (50%) is Tuesday before 11am. Overnight on Monday just expect the cloud cover to increase and the temperatures to drop.
The storm system taking aim at the Pacific Northwest contains much cooler air. Our highs will drop from 70s on Monday to 50s on Tuesday. Also, the winds will be strong on Tuesday and Wednesday with an on/off chance of rain for 48 hours. Overnight lows will get down to the mid 20s.
This system has the ability to add snow to the higher elevations. Tuesday we could see anywhere from 1 - 4 inches up at Mt Bachelor.
Later in the week we will be dry again, but still not too warm-- staying in the mid to upper 50s. By next weekend, showers and even a chance of snow returns to the High Desert.
Have a great day!
