Meteorologist Matt Callihan’s Forecast: Showers to start your Friday off, but drier conditions are on their way. Showers will continue for the Cascades and Central Oregon through your Friday, with a potential for thunderstorms for areas in and around Bend. Showers will cease this afternoon for areas West of the Cascades and in the Valleys, leading to partly cloudy skies by this evening. Temperatures will reach in the upper 60’s to low 70’s for the Valleys, lower 60’s for the foothills and the coast.
Oregon is the home to the deepest lake in the United States, famous waterfalls and in western Oregon, abundant streams and rivers. The life blood of our community is this water, all fueled by nearly 50 inches of rain and hundreds of inches of snow that falls in the Cascades every year. This year we didn't get that critical snow and we're already seeing the consequences.
