Good Wednesday Morning, Everyone...

What a frigid morning! All of Central Oregon has dropped into single digits this morning with some that have dipped below zero. Roads are snow packed and icy, so please be very careful this morning.

We start out under mostly clear skies, but with the approach of the next system from the SW, we will see our cloud cover increase over the course of the day. Highs will reach the mid to upper 20's and NE breezes will stay gentle at 5-10 mph.

That increased cloud cover will yield some snow tonight. We could see a couple inches or a little more on the ground by tomorrow morning. Snow showers are expected to continue through Thursday morning, so watch for a rather dicey commute. If there are any school closures or delays we will have all of that information for you on NewsChannel 21 at Sunrise, and I will keep that latest information posted right here on our weather page.

A chance of showers will stay with us for the next several days, but these cold temps are expected to break as we head into the weekend. We will climb into the low 40's Saturday and see daytime highs in the mid to upper 30's going into next week. Our chance of showers could then come in the form of mixed showers.

HAVE A SPARKLING DAY IN CENTRAL OREGON!
