Temps will have a hard time reaching into the 50's and will dip into the 20s and 30s overnight. Cover your plants or bring them inside. It may be time to start packing up the patio for winter. I don't want to bring it up, but there's also a prediction of the dreaded s-word. SNOW is expected in the mountains.

The National Weather Service in Pendleton is advising that snow will fall in the higher elevations of the Cascades, the Blue Mountains, and the Wallowas.

This past Saturday, eastern Washington and eastern Oregon saw patchy fog.

Wind advisories are in effect for the eastern Columbia River Gorge, the Lower Columbia Basin of Oregon with gusts of 45-50 mph. Blowing dust could be an issue. You may need to secure your trash cans and anything else that can blow away.
