Thursday Night: Some moisture that's been in Central Oregon will start to lift to the NNE tonight. That'll bring the chance for some light snow showers late Thursday/early Friday.

Friday: Models showing snow showers will continue to be possible through much of the morning...eventually weakening and moving NE by late morning/early afternoon. Mostly cloudy after that. High: 18° (Yellow)

*Cold Weather Tips*

-Dress in several light, loose layers

-Watch for signs of frostbite (white, grayish skin) and hypothermia (slurred speech and body temp dropping).

-If trapped outside, get out of the wind and stay dry

-Don't drive unless you absolutely HAVE to!

Stay safe and warm everyone!
