Local Alert Forecast

Local Alert Weather Forecast, Sat., July 4th, 2015

Our temperatures are staying warm this weekend across the high desert. Temperatures still in the upper 90s in northern Deschutes county, but we will see a cool down in our future.

Although the fire weather warning expires tonight, we must be on guard for human caused fires due to firework usage. The dry conditions would cause rapid spreading of fires across the high desert. Make sure you practice firework safety at all times.

A high pressure system is keeping us high and dry across Deschutes County, but a low pressure is moving into our area. This low will carry moisture with it and southern Deschutes County could see some showers and storms Sunday afternoon as a result. These storms would have the potential for some lightning, which could start some fires across Central Oregon. One of the reasons why we need to prevent human-caused fires is because we can’t control fires caused by nature. This would help fire crews out a lot if they only had to worry about containing lightning-caused fires.

By Wednesday of next week, all of Deschutes County will start to see some showers and storms develop. These also will contain lightning, and pose a threat to fire safety across the region. The good news is that cooler air will begin pooling into our area by mid-week. We will see a dramatic cooling in temperatures as a result of this cool air pooling. Temperatures could be in the lower 80s by Friday, which is average for this time of year.

Our seven day forecast shows the potential for storms and cooling across the region. Temperatures will be cooling down to normal levels by the end of the week on Friday. It will definitely be more comfortable to be outside with these cooler temperatures.
