Local Alert Forecast

Local Alert Weather Forecast, Sun., Dec. 21, 2014

A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect for Central Oregon from this afternoon until Monday afternoon. Heavy rain in the Cascades will translate into quickly rising rivers and creeks across the High Desert. Localized areas of flooding is possible this weekend.

If traveling over the cascades this weekend, prepare for icy roads with snow packed conditions at the peak of each pass. Once over the pass, when snow turns back into rain, travel conditions will improve immensely.  No particular pass (Willamette, Santiam, or Hood) appears to see any better road conditions than the others.

Expect rain for most of today, but the storm system will slowly push east. This means that rain and snow will begin to wrap up and come to an end by this evening. Skies will be covered mostly by clouds, but a peak of sunshine now and then is certainly possible. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Monday will be an unseasonably warm day. Like Sunday, highs will warm to the upper 40s and lower 50s. Skies will clear more as well, so additional sunshine is likely. Winds that were gusty nearly all weekend will subside on Monday as well.
