Local Alert Weather Forecast, Wed, Oct. 29, 2014
The increasing clouds we saw across Central Oregon today will persist into the overnight hours and bring an occasional shower to the area. A storm system skating north along the Pacific Coast into Canada will have minimal impact on our area tonight and tomorrow. Most of the rain from this storm will be in the Willamette valley and the Cascades. Still, a few light showers are possible tonight.
The rain that does fall overnight will be brief and intermittent. Low temperatures will be well above the upper 20 average for this time of year. Expect lows mostly in the mid to lower 40s. Skies will stay cloud all night and winds will be light.
Lower elevations may wake up to a few rain showers Thursday that will end and leave behind dry but cloud conditions. In the mountains rain will be falling almost all day with the snow elevation at about 4,700-5,500 feet. High temperatures across the High Desert will warm to the upper 50s and lower 60s and winds from the south remain between 5 and 10 mph.
A second storm system is heading straight to Oregon and will bring the vast majority of the state rain, clouds and cooler temperatures for our Halloween. High temperatures will only warm to the upper 40s and lower 50s. The morning hours will be dry, but by the afternoon and evening rain will begin and as we head into the overnight hours snow may start to fall. Snow will be light and no accumulation on the ground is expected.
