Local Alert Weather Forecast, Thu., Aug 21, 2014
Today was a mid 70s, below average, day for Central Oregon and tomorrow will be equally as cool as northwesterly winds continue to blow across the Pacific Northwest.
Tonight will be cool. Lows will fall to the mid 40s under mostly clear skies. Winds will be light, but still from a northwesterly direction. It will be dry overnight with the only cloud cover being high thin cirrus clouds.
Friday will be sunny for the early portions of the day. High temperatures will be below average once more, only warming to the lower 70s. Winds will be between 5 and 15 mph from the northwest. Clouds will increase for the afternoon hours, and rain showers are possible over the Cascades after about 2 pm. Lower elevations of Central Oregon have an opportunity for a few light rain showers, but it’s such a small chance that virtually all of Central Oregon will be dry.
The weekend brings some warmer temperatures. Northwesterly flow at the surface as well as higher in the atmosphere will start to lighten, allowing temperature to rise to the lower 80s. Skies will be sunny in the morning with a few high clouds later in the day.
Sunday is going to be a repeat of Saturday. Temperatures will make it to the lower 80s. Skies will be sunny all day long and conditions will be dry.
