Christmas Weekend Weather Discussion

Weather Discussion
We’re wrapping up the week with a cold front pushing into Central Oregon bringing snow showers for the Cascades and the chance for scattered, mixed showers farther inland. Out early we saw increasing clouds with some areas of fog. High temperatures today will be in the 30s & 40s for the High Desert with gusty winds at times making it feel cooler. Snow levels will fall throughout the day as the mountain passes see rain at first, then will see more snow by mid-morning in through the afternoon. Accumulations up high look to be about 3-4″ when all is said and done by Friday night.  
Overnight we’ll see the tail end of the front as shower chances and clouds head towards the east. Low temperatures will fall quickly into the teens & 20s making for a cold, frosty and icy start to Saturday. Saturday morning looks to start with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies with some areas of fog. Be careful driving out early!
Saturday will be the sunnier of the weekend days, but chilly with highs struggling to get out of the 30s, although we will see a few low 40s. Overnight into Sunday clouds will increase and Sunday will see partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the 30s & lower 40s.
Christmas Eve night brings the next weak system that will bring us more clouds and slightly breezy winds. We could see a few rain sprinkles east of the mountains, but most of the showers will be to our west — nothing for Santa to worry about!
Christmas Day is forecasted to be partly sunny to mostly cloudy with highs in the mid to upper 40s, which is slightly warmer than average. Winds will be a little blustery at times ahead of the slight chance for a few rain showers east of the Cascades. 
Have a Merry Christmas & safe holiday weekend!
