Fire Weather Watch on Labor Day

Happy Sunday, Central Oregon!

With hazy skies still expected across the region, we have an Air Quality Alert that lasts until Monday at 11 a.m.

Then, after that expires, two Fire Weather Watches begin on Labor Day.

The first one covers most of the High Desert, including Bend, Redmond, Prineville and Madras. That begins Monday at 11 a.m. and ends at 8 p.m.

The other one affects cities like Sisters and La Pine, just east of the Cascades and in the higher elevations. That also starts Monday at 11 a.m. but expires Tuesday at 10 p.m.

Those are going into place because of strong expected wind speeds on Labor Day, to go along with dry conditions. Sustained northerly breezes should be between 16-30 mph for most of the afternoon and evening, with some gusts possibly reaching 43 mph.

In addition to stronger winds, we should also have cooler temperatures on Labor Day.

After another day in the 90s on Sunday, forecast highs on Monday should be in the mid 80s.

Then we dip into the 70s on Tuesday before climbing back into the 90s by Thursday and Friday.
