Happy Thursday, or Friday "Eve". We're in for a chilly, blustery Thursday - highs will be in the upper 30s for most spots, with winds gusting between 25-40 mph this afternoon. Skies will be cloudy for much of the day, and there's a chance that a storm moving through to the southeast of us could drive some snow showers up in our direction this morning and afternoon. Snow amounts will be minimal, likely sticking only to cold surfaces like the grass or possibly car windshields.
By Friday, we turn drier for a couple of days, but temperatures will stay in the upper 30s to low 40s through the weekend. Our next storm looks to set up by late Sunday into Monday, with another shot at some snow showers. Stay tuned for more on possible accumulations, but early indications show this won't be a major snow-maker. Snow showers are most likely Monday into Tuesday morning. Depending on temperatures, we could see some rain showers mixed in Monday afternoon. A ridge of high pressure looks to be setting up by Wednesday, hinting that we'll dry out heading into next weekend.
Water levels on both the Malheur and Weiser Rivers have dropped below flood stage this morning. Flood Warnings are no longer in effect for those areas.
