Warming trend begins, temperatures expected to hit 90 this weekend

The cold snap has ended and the region is now in the beginning stages of a major warm up. The high temperature for today will cross into the 70s for the first time since Friday and will likely return to the 80s Wednesday.

The warm pool of air is arriving from the eastern Pacific and will linger into the weekend.  Not much in the way of cloud cover is expected over the next few days as the mercury in the thermometer continues to rise.  Normal highs this time of year are the middle 70s, we will be in the upper 80s and low 90s by the end of the week and into the weekend.

The official start of the Astronomical Summer is Thursday at around 1:51 pm when the direct rays of the Sun are over the Tropic of Cancer.  This is the day with the longest period of sunlight hours possible.  The Meteorological Summer is defined by the three warmest months while the Astronomical Summer is based on the relationship of the Sun and the Earth.

The forecast will be very “summer-like” this week as Thursday will see temps in the low to mid-80s and Saturday may see our first 90° in Bend and Redmond this season.

Stay hydrated, stay in the shade as much as possible and never leave kids or pets in your car.
