Local Alert Weather Forecast, Fri., Apr. 17, 2015
The region of high pressure responsible for a very pleasant Friday will weaken a little overnight and allow a cold front to slide over Oregon. This cold front will have a minimal impact on temperatures, dropping them about 5 degrees or so from Friday’s high temperatures. Still, the weekend will be sunny, dry and comfortable.
Skies will stay clear overnight with lows mostly in the lower 30s. Winds will be from the west between 5 and 10 mph. Overall it will be a comfortable night with daytime heat lingering into the evening between dropping quickly after midnight or so.
We begin the weekend with slightly cooler temperatures. Saturday will be a sunny day, a few clouds are possible in the afternoon, but they will only be high cirrus clouds. Most of the region will manage to warm up to the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds will continue to stay from a westerly direction between 5 and 10 mph.
Sunday will be a touch warmer. High pressure will continue to influence the area, allowing temperatures to warm under sunny skies. Expect afternoon highs to range in the low to mid 70s. It’ll be dry again as well, with hardly any clouds in the state.
Come Monday, the sunshine and nice weather continues. Our workweek begins in the 70s with more dry and nice conditions.
Tuesday through Thursday of next week is trending cool. A storm system is taking aim at Oregon and—as of now—should bring some showers and thunderstorms back to the High Desert with temperatures returning to the lower 60s.
