St. Patrick’s Day was dry, warmer, but we’re due for a change this weekend
Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend, Central Oregon!
We had a bit of the 'Luck O' the Irish' to close out the work week on Friday, with warming temperatures under clear skies that turned cloudy late in the day.
Highs Friday were in the low 50s and we stayed dry all day. Winds stayed a gentle 5-10 mph. We saw some cloud cover roll in late in the evening and lows were in the high 20s -- about five degrees warmer on average compared to Thursday.
Saturday will be partly cloudy, but continuing the warming trend. Despite the clouds, we're dry with high temperatures in the mid 50s. Overnight, the increased cloud cover will keep some of the heat from the sun near the surface, and our lows will continue to rise to the mid 30s.
By Sunday, we have a decent chance of getting some rain, and although highs will stay toward the low 50s, we will begin a cooling trend to start the week.
Have a great weekend!
