Sunday was clear, sunny and a little crisp in Bend.
Despite the sunshine, the high didn’t top the mid-40s, said Josh Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pendleton. More sun is in store for today, but the high should be around 50.
The sunshine is likely to be short-lived, though, according to the weather service. Clouds, cooler weather and perhaps rain and snow mark the forecast for most of the week.
A cold front is expected to move into Central Oregon on Tuesday, likely bringing rain to Bend, according to the weather service. Highs throughout the week should slide from near 50 down into the 40s, with lows in the 20s expected.
“Tuesday and Wednesday look like they will be the worst for weather," Smith said.
There is a 70 percent chance of rain in Bend on Tuesday, according to the weather service. The snow level should be at 4,100 feet. A mix of rain and snow may fall Wednesday in town.
