Local Alert Weather Forecast, Mon., June 29th 2015
Another hot week is ahead of us. Temperatures will be warming up to the mid 90s while we stay nice and dry across the high desert. The biggest concern this week will be firework safety, given the dry and hot conditions.
Satellite and radar imagery shows that there is some moisture off to our west, but that moisture will stay very far from us. Just a few passing clouds across the Cascades, but mostly clear in our area.
Temperatures will stay in the lower to mid 90s for the first few days of the week, but by Wednesday we should warm up to the upper 90s. We are way above average for this time of the year, and it doesn’t look like we’re going to cool down for the foreseeable future.
High pressure air is floating above Oregon and drawing in hot air from the Gulf of Mexico. This hot air is circulating across our region, and definitely wants to stick around for quite some time. It looks like temperatures will be floating around the 90 degree mark for the rest of the week.
Independence Day looks dry and sunny, with temperatures staying around the lower 90s. The dry conditions mean that our early morning low temperatures will be cooling down to the lower 50s. The biggest concern is firework safety, since fires could spread rapidly. Although there isn’t a red flag warning, we must always practice fire safety.
Our seven day forecast shows plenty of beautiful sunshine and hot summer temperatures. Be sure to keep the sunscreen on and the water bottle close by.
