Dry and mild day with near normal temperatures

Temperatures will start out in the middle 30s today, but rise to the upper 60s and a few low 70s later this afternoon. The skies will be mostly sunny as high pressure parks over the region for the weekend. The winds will be noticeable today but not to overwhelming, just enough to knock a decent amount of pollen off the trees.

Tree pollen will be very high today, so if you are an allergy sufferer then you may be in for an uncomfortable day. It has been placed in the very high category today while grass pollen is in the moderate range. Ragweed is not expected to be a concern.

Smoke is also not expected to be much of a problem this weekend, but as we head into Monday, another prescribed burn near Bend is scheduled. Smoky conditions along highway 97 and all the cities will be impacted.

Sunday will be much cooler with highs in the upper 50s. A cold pocket of air will drop down from Canada Sunday and keep the region below normal. The colder conditions will not last long and the mercury in the thermometer will be back in the upper 60s Monday.

The dry pattern is likely to continue through the weekend and into early next week. The next chance for measurable rain will not be until late Tuesday or early Wednesday.  Light and spotty showers will be the best way to define the rainy period.
