Air quality alert extended for southern Deschutes County

The DEQ air quality alert that was set to expire Wednesday morning has been extended for southern Deschutes County all the way through Friday at 11 a.m.

Air quality levels were in the "good" range formost Central Oregon Wednesday, even with some smoke rolling from the Bull Springs Fire near the Mt. Hood National Forest and the Schneider Springs Fire burning in Washington state.

Temperatures, meanwhile, will stay below average all day Thursday. In fact, forecast lows will either be at or below freezing in southern Deschutes County, so folks in that area may see some frost in the early parts of the day.

Then we get a warmup heading into the weekend, quickly climbing up to the high 80s by Sunday and Monday, making for a warm Labor Day holiday weekend.
