Cold, dry and very windy weather ahead.
A ridge of high pressure building over the Pacific Northwest will bring a sunny but very chilly Thanksgiving. Clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with overnight with lows dropping into the middle to upper 20s. East winds will pick up later tonight in the Columbia River Gorge. Gusts will top 40 mph Thursday afternoon and could reach 50 mph by Friday. Expect bone-chilling wind chill temperatures.
Skies will remain sunny through the weekend with afternoon temperatures in the middle to upper 40s.
The only issues for area roads will be in the Cascades and Central Oregon. Highway travel there will be slowed by snow that will remain on the ground. Cold and dry weather will remain in place through at least the middle of next week. Some computer models are hinting at a chance of rain next Wednesday at the earliest.
