Local Alert Forecast

Local Alert Weather Forecast, Mon., Apr. 27, 2015

We wake up to a few high, thin clouds this morning, but with high pressure gaining strength over the region throughout the day, we can expect those clouds to dissipate. We can also expect our daytime highs to reach the low to mid 70's. With SE breezes staying gentle at 5-10 mph, this promises to be one of the nicest days we have seen so far this year.

  Skies will stay clear tonight and overnight lows will only be dropping into the low to mid 40's. Those gentle SE breezes will stay with us until morning.

 Tuesday will be staying warm, but with the passage of a weak cold front we will SE some clouds build in late in the day and ultimately deliver a slight chance of some showers Wednesday. This will also bring slightly cooler temperatures. Wednesday and Thursday look to be topping out in the mid 60's. From there we will a string of very pleasant days. With plenty of sunshine, watch our daytime highs top out in the low to mid 70's right through next weekend.

 Have a Sparkling Day in Central Oregon!
