Fall Preview for the Northwest
We almost eked out a 90 degree day today (89.4 isn’t bad, of course). Friday and Saturday look similarly warm, and then Fall will start. Big time. Next week Sisters will be lucky to hit 75, as our wonderful high pressure ridge will be shoved east by a large upper-level trough moving down from the Gulf of Alaska. We probably won’t get much precip (it is the High Desert, after all) but we could see a shower or a thunderstorm, especially on Sunday as the first front moves through.
Too early for the season to change, you say? Not really, as it seems like we get a strong front barreling through in mid-September, ending summer and ushering in the High Desert’s most beautiful season, autumn.
