Local Alert Forecast

Local Alert Weather Forecast, Wed., Nov. 26, 2014

Cooler temperatures are on the way as the storm system responsible for bringing the region above average conditions the past few days now send cold air our way. A band of rain will start to move into the state from the west tonight. This band will bring showers to the Willamette Valley during the daylight hours. Central Oregon will start to tap into the rain later in the afternoon on Thanksgiving. Behind this band of rain is colder air that will continue to drop temperatures through the weekend.

Tonight will be dry again. Cloud cover will be on the rise ahead of tomorrow’s rain. Overnight lows will fall to the lower 40s for the regions. Winds will continue to be from a southerly direction and will help to keep overnight lows well above average.

Thanksgiving will be a very comfortable day. Skies will be cloudy all day long and rain will eventually arrive across the High Desert. Most of the day will be dry, and once the rain arrives in the afternoon it will be off and on and very spotty. Daytime highs should still manage to warm to the mid to lower 50s.

Friday will continue to see the thermometer fall. Rain is likely as we end the workweek and temperatures will only manage to reach the mid 40s for daytime highs. Winds will be from a northwesterly direction bringing with it the cooler air that will continue to impact the region through the weekend.

Both Saturday and Sunday stand an opportunity for snow and rain. Highs on Saturday will only be in the lower 30s and on Sunday in the upper 20s. Travel over the mountain passes this weekend will be slow and icy. The wintery conditions are cause for extra travel time to be included in any plans to go over the mountain passes.
