BEND, OR -- Central Oregon remains under a Winter Weather Advisory through early Wednesday morning. The system is expected to produce several inches of snow over the next 18 hours, or so.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Rob Cramp tells KBND, "The Bend area, Deschutes County, will probably see a fairly significant snow event Tuesday into Tuesday night, probably ending early Wednesday morning. Accumulations from Redmond into Bend, we're thinking 2"-4", maybe 3"-6". But, as you get just a little bit farther south and west, as you get up into the Cascades and the higher terrain there, certainly you could see 4"-8", possibly 5"-10" of snow." He adds, accumulations will vary depending on where in Central Oregon you live. "Typically, as you head a little farther north, say Madras down to Redmond, it's a little less."
Once the storm moves through Wednesday, the area shouldn't see any more precipitation for a while. However, temperatures will remain cold, with the highs only in the 20's and 30's through the end of the week.
