Tuesday morning sees strong winds and rain across the forecast area. Wind speeds are topping 45+ mph for the tri-county area and upwards of 90+ mph on Mt. Bachelor. A Wind Advisory is in effect through the overnight. Once a cold front moves through and exits the region, we’ll see calmer wind speeds.
Snow levels will fall to around 3,100′ by Tuesday night and will bottom out around 2,100′ by Wednesday evening. A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for higher elevations as rain showers change to snow showers. Snow is expected to accumulate, which would result in slick conditions for driving Wednesday morning. The rest of Central Oregon will see scattered rain showers.
