Happy Black Friday...Civil War Day...Still Sunny...Still Cold...
Dry conditions continue today with even less frost on the groung early, if you're headed out to grab those Black Friday bargains, bundle up, temperatures will be in the 30's, with light wind that will pick up near the Gorge later in the morning. Cold enough there still could be icy spots on the roads, but getting around should not be too much trouble...as far as the weather is concerned.
Clear skies will remain in the forecast with temperatures greadually warming out of the 20's and 30's into the low to mid 40's for the afternoon.
East winds will pick up in the Columbia River Gorge. Gusts will top 50 mph Friday afternoon. Expect bone-chilling wind chill temperatures in the teens and single digits.
Skies will remain sunny through the weekend with afternoon temperatures in the middle 40s, and overnight lows in the 20's.
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 early next week. Some computer models are hinting at a chance of rain late Tuesday at the earliest.
