Local Alert Weather Forecast, Tue., Feb. 9, 2016
GOOD TUESDAY MORNING, EVERYONE...
When you combine clear skies, humidity levels in the 90+ percentile, calm winds and temperatures at or below freezing, you have the perfect recipe for the deposition of frost and our windshields were covered with it this morning. Along with that frost we are looking at the effects of an Air Stagnation Advisory to our north that will stay in place through 10 AM Saturday. This morning the fog crept as far south as parts of Redmond.
In contrast to the start of the day, we have a good chance of seeing record high temps through the afternoon. High pressure will dictate a lot of sunshine as highs climb to the low to mid 60’s. Our record high for this date of 63 degrees was set in 1954. SE breezes will be gentle at 5-10 mph and they will stay with us tonight.
Skies will stay clear tonight. Temperatures will drop back into the low 30’s so more frost and freezing fog are possible once again tonight.
Wednesday will be another very pleasant day, but we will add a few thin clouds overhead by the end of the day. Temps will cool slightly going into the end of the work week, but they will be staying above average for this time of year. Clouds thicken for the weekend ahead and to them we will add a chance of some scattered showers. Valentine’s Day looks to be overcast, with a slight chance of showers and highs in the mid 50’s.
HAVE A SPARKLING DAY IN CENTRAL OREGON!
