We are seeing hurricane-like conditions at some higher elevations, with very strong winds passing through the region, specifically on the east slopes of the Cascades.
Central Oregon is in a wind advisory until Saturday morning, and parts of the region are in a winter weather advisory.
We have a 50 percent chance of showers taking us through Friday evening across the region. Mostly cloudy skies, with highs reaching the mid-50s. Winds are coming out of the southwest in gusts as high as 32 mph.
New precipitation amounts to less than a tenth of an inch possible. We can expect showers Friday night. Overnight lows are coming in around the mid-30s.
On Saturday, there’s a slight chance of rain showers before 8 p.m., then a slight chance of rain and snow showers between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m., then a slight chance of snow showers after 2 a.m. Sunday.
