Local Alert Weather Forecast, Sat., May 30, 2015
The hot weather seen across Central Oregon this week will only persist into the weekend. High pressure to the southwest will keep temperatures warm and conditions fairly dry. However, each afternoon a few rain showers may develop over the Cascades.
Saturday will be another very warm day. Afternoon high temperatures will easily reach the mid 80s. Locations to the north, such as Madras, Warm Springs, and Madras will easily hit 90 degrees. In the afternoon clouds will build and a few very isolated rain showers are possible. No need to change outdoor plans because of the rain possibility—the chance for showers is very small—just keep an eye on the sky.
Come Sunday, temperatures begin to decline. Still it’s going to be a very pleasant day. Skies will be blue with only a few late day clouds. Highs will warm into the 80s in the afternoon. Winds will be from the west between 5 and 10 mph. A few light showers are possible in the Cascades Sunday evening, but lower elevations will be dry.
A storms system arrives on Monday. Temperatures will take a hit, only warming into the upper 60s. There will be thick clouds developing in the afternoon and widespread rain showers and thunderstorms are possible.
The rest of next workweek will be cool. Temperatures will struggle to reach the upper 60s under partly cloudy skies.
