Local Alert Weather Forecast, Sun., Aug. 28, 2016 

Good evening, everyone...

After a beautiful day in Central Oregon we will continue to look at a beautiful, clear night this evening. Today we saw temperatures in the mid to high 80's throughout the Central Oregon region. Tonight we can expect temperatures in the mid to low 50's. This is more mild than what we saw last night when we were in the upper 50's to low 60's. We will see breezes this evening at 10-15 MPH from the NW.

For the rest of the week we will start to drop in temperatures. The high pressure system we saw over the past couple of weeks will now move off to the East and we will begin to see cloud cover and moisture in the air as the week progresses. Monday we will be the pick day of the week as we will be in the upper 80's once again without a cloud in sight. By Tuesday our temperatures will drop to the high 70's with a 20 percent chance of rain showers. This rain will make our temperatures drop for the rest of the week to low to mid 70's with chances of rain towards the end of the week.
