Local Alert Weather Forecast, Thurs., July 31, 2014

A FIRE WEATHER WARNING is in effect for Deschutes, Jefferson, and Crook counties until 11:00 PM on Saturday due to possibility of lightning from late day thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms across Central Oregon will be moving from the south to the north northeast today. Storms will bring lightning, gusty winds, heavy rain, and occasional hail. After midnight conditions will calm significantly and skies will begin to clear. Low temperatures will fall to the lower 60s tonight, which is well above average.

Friday will see sunshine in the morning and clouds and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Storms tomorrow do not appear to be as widespread or as organized as what we are seeing this evening. Highs will remain hot and in the 90s. Winds at the surface will stay light and from the north between 5 and 10 mph.

The start of the weekend also has the opportunity to see afternoon and evening thunderstorms. But like every other day this week, sunshine will be prevalent in the early part of the day with clouds building in the afternoon and evening. Highs on Saturday will again make it to the mid 90s.
