Local Alert Weather, Tue. AM, 11.20.18


Good Tuesday Morning, Everyone…

Well, it looks like today will be the last fair day before the first major storm of the season presses into the Pacific NW. High pressure will continue to deliver plenty of sunshine today and we can expect highs to be a little warmer than yesterday; topping out in the mid 50’s. Breezes will be light out of the SE.

We will see a few clouds build in tonight, but we will stay dry. Since we are still out ahead of the cold front we will actually see a milder night. Under partly cloudy skies, lows will be down to freezing and a bit below. Breezes will be out of the south at 5-10 mph.

Your Thanksgiving holiday forecast is looking pretty stormy. This will be good news for winter sports enthusiasts heading to Mt. Bachelor, but it come with a serious word of CAUTION to all traveling through the mountains. Between tonight and Friday night Mt. Bachelor is expected to receive about 14 inches of fresh snow. While they will not be open Thanksgiving Day, they are expecting to open one run for the weekend…very limited operations, but still a big HOORAY for all the riders.

MOUNTAIN TRAVELERS: Those getting an early start will find the drive over the mountains quite easy. Those not leaving until later tomorrow and even Thanksgiving morning will find the drive much more challenging. ODOT is already advising that you carry chains or traction tire, so BE PREPARED for winter driving conditions to be difficult. This will last through the weekend following Thanksgiving.

While the rain showers are expected to break up late Friday on the High Desert, snow showers will continue in the Cascades through the weekend. This storm will usher in colder, more average, temps, as well. Beginning Friday highs will be in the mid 40’s and overnight lows will be in the mid 20’s.
