this afternoon. The trough will depart tonight and an offshore
ridge will build over the area for warmer and continued dry
conditions on Monday. By Tuesday a trough will approach the area
and a more unstable southwest flow will lead to thunderstorms in
Central Oregon Tuesday afternoon and across most of the area on
Wednesday. Thursday will be windy with lingering thunderstorms in
Union and Wallowa counties.
