▶️ Winds back off, but more chances for snow showers ahead

We’re seeing some snow showers wrap up in the Cascades and higher elevations on this Wednesday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in place for those in higher elevations and those closer to the mountains – the alert expires at 1:00 p.m.
Some snow that has fallen means roads will be slick and/or icy to start the day. Daytime highs for Wednesday will be in the mid to upper 30s and lower 40s, so a little cooler than Tuesday. Snow levels will bottom out Wednesday and start to climb up through the end of the week. Wind speeds for Wednesday will be out of the southwest around 15-20 miles per hour.
Our active weather pattern will continue with a couple breaks between systems. Get ready for heavy mountain snow, some totals for Central Oregon and winds will be gusty at times by Thursday morning. Many of us will wake up to some snow accumulations totaling 1-3″ for the Bend area with more down south.
High temperatures begin to warm slightly Thursday and Friday in the upper 40s. Snow levels will also slightly climb. Some mixed showers are more likely by the end of the week with much more rain included.

Back-to-back winter systems will impact Central Oregon through the rest of this final week in 2022. There will be some breaks between systems with in & out clouds and some calming. Roller coaster temperatures are expected with highs in the 30s & 40s and lows will be in the 20s with some 30s.

As we start 2023, temperatures will be near normal (Avg. RDM 42/23) for this time of the year.
