Happy Thursday evening, everyone!

*Apologies for the dated webcast this evening -- we're having some technical difficulties.

Another hot day in the 90s for Central Oregon! High pressure has anchored offshore and is providing the region with sunny and dry conditions.

This evening we'll dip into the mid 80s around sunset. Winds will be gentle out of the north around 10 miles per hour.

Overnight we'll be very mild with lows in the 50s, which is above average. Clear skies overnight will extend into the morning hours tomorrow.

Friday is looking to be our hottest day of the week with highs in the mid to upper 90s. So far, our hottest day of the year was on June 5 with a high of 97 degrees. Our average daytime high for this date is 88 degrees.

By Sunday temperatures will cool off into the mid 80s and we'll hover around average for the next week.

Stay safe & stay hydrated!
