Local Alert Weather – Mon. PM


Happy Monday evening, everyone!

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in place for the west slopes of the Cascades through noon Tuesday for snowfall on the roadways. Know you’ll see winter driving conditions in the mountains if you are traveling over the next 24-48 hours.

Tonight clouds are pushing over the Cascades ahead of a cold front arriving tomorrow. The front will bring us mixed and snow showers and leave cooler air. Snow levels tonight are around 3,400′ and will fall to 2,200′ by Tuesday morning. Showers will arrive to the mountains and higher elevations like La Pine and Sunriver in the early morning hours. Low temperatures will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s, which is slightly above average. Winds will be breezy at times gusting 15 miles per hour.

Tuesday morning starts with some areas seeing light snow showers while others could be seeing sunshine. We’ll see a mixed bag behind the front on Tuesday across Central Oregon. Daytime highs will be noticeably cooler in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds will be gusty topping 25 miles per hour as the front exits.

Mt. Bachelor could pick up between 4-8″ out of this system with higher elevations or areas closer to the Cascades seeing 1-2″ and traces for others. Roads could become slick and slushy.

Overnight into Wednesday showers calm and so do the winds. Skies will break up nicely over the next few days and we’ll see a mix of clouds and sun. Highs gradually climb through the end of the week and weekend. High temperatures will top out in the upper 40s and lower 50s Saturday and Sunday.
