Hazy Monday morning

Happy Monday morning, Central Oregon!

We're waking up to hazy skies with thin clouds, and that will be the trend at least until Wednesday due to wildfires and high temperatures across our region. Avoid the outdoors, if smoke is a concern for you.

Most of Central Oregon will be topping out in the mid to upper 90-degree temperatures. The average high is 95 degrees and low is 54 degrees. In Jefferson/ Wasco counties, Warm Springs will reach 100 degrees and Maupin will be 99. Crook County will be ranging around 97 degrees, and Deschutes County will see temperatures between 92 and 95 degrees.

Gentle breezes are on tap this morning, ranging from 5 to 15 miles per hour, but can increase all the way up to 23 miles per hour this afternoon.

Tonight, expect the haze to remain in our region, with mild temperatures across the High Desert.

  1. We should not being using terms like “average high” to describe temperatures of 90+ in Bend in July. The average July temperature of bend is 82 according to US Climate Data. Calling things like 90 “average”, even in the context the “average temperature of a current heatwave” helps establish a shifting baseline. It promotes an acceptance of this sort of heat as normal.

    This place is turning into a parched, baked desert nightmare and all I get from things like this are mental images of concerns like Visit Bend and the local landlords saying “Yes yes, but find a NICER way to say it.”.
