Local Alert Weather Forecast, Thu, May 5, 2016
Good Thursday Morning, Everyone...
NOTE: THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS ISSUED A FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND NE OREGON. IN CONJUNCTION WITH HEAVY RAINFALL CANYON AREAS ARE ALSO BEING WARNED OF THE POTENTIAL FOR LANDSLIDES. PLEASE BE VERY CAUTIOUS IN ALL LOW LYING AREAS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY AND OVERNIGHT TONIGHT.
Dense fog that settled in very quickly this morning, has now begun to lift in some areas. Heavy rain fell on warm ground late yesterday. With cooler temps in the morning hours condensation takes place right at the surface. That fog will linger in some low lying areas, so give yourself some extra time this morning.
More moisture continues to press into the region out of the south. With the slow advance of this system, today could easily see more rain than yesterday. Highs will reach the upper 60’s to low 70’s and breezes will be gentle and variable throughout the day.
Tonight’s lows will be mild once again, bottoming out in the 40’s. For a short period tonight winds will pick up out of the north at 10-15 mph. We can also expect to see some scattered showers overnight.
Friday morning starts out pleasant enough, but the rain showers are not quite finished with us. Rain through the afternoon tomorrow will taper off and that will take us into a pretty nice weekend. Saturday will stay partly cloudy, but the highs will climb into the lower 80’s. Sunday, Mother’s Day, will be very pleasant. We will stay mostly sunny with gentle breezes and highs in the mid 70’s. Those conditions will repeat for the next few days through next week.

HAVE A SPARKLING DAY IN CENTRAL OREGON!
