Local Alert Weather – Thurs. PM


Happy Thursday evening, everyone!

Areas of patchy fog are likely to develop again tonight as our inversion remains in place. Cold air will be trapped in lower elevations, so temperatures will stay chilly. Overnight apart from the fog we will see mostly clear skies. Temperatures will dip into the teens for overnight lows, which is below average. Winds will be light out of the southeast.

Tomorrow morning we’ll wake up to some fog, but this will be the day we start to see changes. Partly cloudy skies are expected through the afternoon as we see the ridge of high pressure weaken along with the inversion. Highs top out in the mid to upper 30s, which is still below average but a little warmer than we were for today. Winds wil be out of the southeast around 10 miles per hour.

Snow levels will be low through Friday for Central Oregon. Snow levels climb up to 2,300′ Friday night. Saturday snow levels will fall from 3,800′ to 2,800′. Sunday we’ll see snow levels hovering around 3,000′, which means most of Central Oregon will see showers leaning on the snow side.

Mt. Bachelor will have some snow arriving overnight into Saturday, and then again on Sunday. Accumulations are looking minimal as of now.

Overnight into Saturday we could see a few light showers on the High Desert, but the chance for that would be brief and a slight chance at that. Saturday looks to see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Highs will be mild in the mid 40s.

Sunday will see the best chance for mixed showers for Central Oregon with snow for higher elevations. Daytime highs will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Roads will become slick and icy during the day. Overnight when we see freezing conditions that will create spots of ice.

We begin next week with average temperatures in the lower 40s. Shower chances look highest on Monday and Wednesday.
