Central Oregon Braces for Wet and Windy Weather This Week
Central Oregon residents should prepare for a drench-filled week ahead, according to local weather forecasters.
The region is expected to experience a mix of rain and snow on and off through at least Thursday.
Using satellite and radar imagery, forecasters predict that a weather system moving in from the Pacific Northwest will shift through cities like Corvallis, Eugene, Portland, and Medford before making its way across the high desert and up through Pendleton, Seattle, and Spokane.
Breezy conditions are also expected, with winds gusting as high as 33 miles per hour.
The strongest winds are expected to move through Central Oregon off the coast of Newport through Eugene, The Dalles, and Baker City.
Forecasters advise residents to expect mostly cloudy and breezy conditions tonight, with a mixture of snow and rain beginning tomorrow and continuing through Thursday.
Temperatures are expected to be mild, with daytime highs in the mid-40s to mid-50s, and overnight lows in the upper 20s to low 30s.
By Friday, forecasters expect some clearing with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the 40s.
A warm-up is expected over the weekend, with temperatures reaching the 60-degree mark.
Residents in Central Oregon are advised to take precautions and prepare for the wet and windy weather conditions throughout the week.
