Happy Monday, Central Oregon!
Are you ready for some snow?
We're still looking at an active weather pattern leading up to thanksgiving.
Showers are expected tonight, with light to moderate snow accumulations in the mountains.
Locally breezy westerly winds 10 to 15 mph are possible through this evening as well.
Showers diminish through the night and the first half of Tuesday and will be fairly calm.
Overnight lows in the high teens to low 20s.
A winter storm watch is currently in effect across the region until Wednesday at 10 p.m.
Significant snowfall is expected in Central Oregon late Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday morning.
Snow is expected to be moderate to possibly heavy at times, with accumulations anywhere from 1 to 3 inches before the day is over.
Tuesday will bring highs in the mid- to high 30s with up to another 5 inches of snow by Wednesday morning.
Central Oregon will likely continue to receive accumulating snow Wednesday night, then a gradual decrease on Thursday.
After this, expect a very cold Thanksgiving Day, with highs in the low 20s and overnight lows around 2 degrees.
As the storm system continues to move away from the forecast area, expect a period of dry, with continued cold weather from Thursday night through Saturday.
Lows on Thanksgiving night could reach into the negative degree range in some areas.
Temperatures are due to moderate on Sunday and Monday with an increase in moisture again from the southwest for possible light snow Sunday and Monday, mainly in the mountains, while the lower elevations will be mostly dry.
