Snow showers working way back into area through mid-week

Snow showers working way back into area through mid-week

The Cascades will see snow showers, which is some good news for skiers and snowboarders!

Thursday we may wake up to patchy frost over inland areas and temperatures will get down into the mid 30s.

Outside of the primarily morning snow showers, expect plenty of clouds, brisk winds, and unseasonably chilly temperatures for the rest of today with highs struggling to make it to 40 degrees. Our timeframe for some of the heavier snow bands will be 2 7 p.m., which means the evening drive may be slowed by the snow showers.

Today: Snow showers likely with most numerous snow in the afternoon. West wind around 16 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 28 miles per hour.

It will be cold and cloudy Tuesday morning with temperatures in the mid-20s and a wind chill in the mid-teens.

Thursday and Friday will be much milder with highs close to 60. Highs will only top out in the low to mid 50s each day with overnight lows in the low 30s, even below freezing Wednesday night/Thursday morning. Lowering snow levels mean that during the day on Wednesday most of Central Oregon will see some mixed precipitation. Our average high for mid-March should be climbing into the upper 40s, and we'll remain below that mark through Saturday.
