All you need to know about Central Oregon weather is this: Most of the golf courses don’t even stock umbrellas or rain gear. Why? Because we’re on the dry side of the Cascades. We like to say we have 300 days of sunshine a year, but the locals will admit that’s probably a stretch. It’s probably more like 290. The region is roughly 3,000 feet above sea level and is predominately a High Desert, which means warm days and cool nights. Daytime highs in the summer average about 85, while at night it dips into the mid-40s. Winter temperatures range from the 40s to low-20s. And annual precipitation – mostly in the form of snow during winter – ranges from 8.5 to 20 inches.
