Our next round of rain with breezy winds will begin after Midnight. Tuesday has been cool and breezy at times with more showers. Temperatures are running 1°- 11° cooler than 24-hours ago. Highs were in the 60s and some 50s and this keeps us well below normal (Avg. Bend 72/39) for late September.
These next few days:
We are in an active weather pattern with several cold fronts lined up to our west, over the Pacific Ocean. This includes a low pressure that is just off-shore. Our next system will bring rain back into the forecast tonight, after Midnight.
Each system will take its turn to move through the Pacific Northwest. This means more rain with roller coaster temperature. Highs will remain well below normal and winds will become breezy for many of us. After this next system, clearing is expected with a brief bump in temperatures by Thursday before highs drop into the 50s with more rain and stronger winds.
Overnight temperatures will be chilly with a light breeze and more AM rain. Lows will be in the 40s with some 30s as winds become breezy for many of us.
Wednesday will bring early showers and Midday-PM. Winds will remain breezy with clearing and cooler temperatures. Highs in the 50s & some 60s.
A break between systems will continue Tuesday. More in/out clouds are expected with a slight bump in temperatures. Highs will be in the 60s with some 50s. More overnight clouds are expected in advance of our next system.
The rest of our 7day planner:
An active weather pattern will continue as we wrap up this work week. More showers will be coupled with another drop in temperatures with breezy winds on Friday. More snow is expected through the Cascades with some mix possible by Friday night. By this weekend a calmer weather pattern will bring more sunshine, a light breeze and a gradual warming trend. Through the extended outlook, our temperatures will remain below normal and reach as low as 20 degrees cooler than normal before highs begin to rebound next week.
