Holiday weekend: Staying mainly dry west, t'storms move in over central & eastern Oregon

More dry hours than wet this weekend.

PORTLAND, Oregon —

The start of the holiday weekend has been very quiet along the westside of the state. We're going to see some clearing later this evening, but clouds will increase overnight and into the first part of Sunday. Highs for the metro area will be in the in the low 70s on Sunday. 

If you have plans on camping this weekend over the Cascades or in central Oregon be prepared for thunderstorms. The radar has been showing strong downpours and thunderstorms this afternoon over parts of the Bend and Redmond area. Expect to see those thunderstorms continue this evening and into the overnight hours east of the Cascades. Not only will there be thunderstorms, but there's also a chance to see hail and breezy conditions too. Showers and thunderstorms will continue into Sunday too, for parts of central and eastern Oregon. 

For the 4th of July, there's a chance for some light showers and drizzle for the first part of the day, but by the afternoon sunny and nice with highs around the mid 70s. 

Have a great weekend,
