Local Alert Weather Forecast, Wed., July 1st, 2015
HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY 12:00 PM TO THURSDAY 8:00 PM. DOES NOT COVER ALL OF CENTRAL OREGON, BUT MOST.
We're beginning the month of July on a warm note. We have Heat Advisory over the tri-county area as well as a Fire Weather Watch in effect from Friday afternoon until Saturday because we will encounter some breezy conditions mixed with dry and warm air.
A high pressure system will be staying in our area over the next few days. It's bringing quite a bit of warm air to the Pacific Northwest. Over the next few days we'll see temperatures in the upper 90's and low 100's due to the system. Winds will be calm and variable overnight with temperatures in the upper 50's and low 60's, which is above average.
We could see some scattered thunderstorms beginning Sunday, but we are keeping a close eye on any storms that may wander into our area.
The 4th of July is looking quite hot at this time with temperatures topping out in the upper 90's and plenty of sunshine across the area. Independence Day could be quite breezy as well, so be sure to keep an eye on your fireworks.
Over the weekend, pay attention to your loved ones including your pets. It's easy to become dehydrated with these warm, dry conditions. Drink water, water, and water! :)
