Weather

Corvallis: A pretty sunrise and slightly warmer temperatures are enough to make the heart leap a little as we head toward the end of March, but there may be a bit more rain this afternoon. But despair not, tomorrow is expected to be dry, if cloudy, and on Friday, those rare words ‘partly sunny’ are currently predicted. Today’s high will be 60 with a low of 48.

Central Oregon: Wednesday’s sunny skies will be joined by a little wind, and there may still be some showers here and there in the early morning. Fortunately, by afternoon Central Oregon highs will reach into the upper 50′s.
