Winter Storm Continues for the Cascades

Weather Discussion
Happy Friday morning, everyone!
We’re starting the morning off with some snow on the ground across much of Central Oregon resulting in slick conditions and icy roads. Take your time getting around today as we’ll continue to see chances for mixed showers. Daytime highs will be in the mid to upper 30s & lower 40s. Wind speeds will be gusty at times topping 30 miles per hour out of the west. 
A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the mountains and higher elevations as snowfall continues. Snow levels will stay below 5,000′ through Saturday afternoon, then will rise quickly through the beginning of next week. Saturday evening is when the snowfall will change over to mixed showers up in the Cascades, meaning the snow on the ground will become heavy and flooding concerns increase come Sunday night. There will be feet of snow in the mountains between Friday and Saturday, but then the rain comes and we will lose a lot of what is on the ground. 
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in place for much of the tri-county area for snow accumulating and gusty winds. Visibility could be reduced at times, so take care when traveling.
This evening we’ll see a break in between systems, so shower chances will decrease for those east of the mountains and our winds will back off to about 15-20 miles per hour. Overnight, we’ll see lows hovering around the freezing mark and below and will see some snow showers up high with rain showers for lower elevations. Those in La Pine, Sunriver and Deschutes River Woods will wake up to some snow Saturday morning.

Saturday will see another round of showers, but this time in the form of rain for many lower elevations. Winds will still be rather gusty and temperatures will still be chilly with many in the low to mid 40s, which is average. The Bend Christmas Parade will see good chances for rain showers and breezy winds. Dress appropriately and come out and join the Central Oregon Daily News team!
Overnight into Sunday we’re still expecting rain showers. Snow levels will start to climb at this point, so our chances for snow showers are minimal. Lows will be warmer in the mid to upper 30s & lower 40s.
Sunday sees daytime highs in the upper 40s & lower 50s with off and on rain showers and mostly cloudy skies. We can expect more of the same through the beginning of the week and will see a lot of snowmelt that is widespread.
Make it a safe & happy weekend!
