Those hoping for snow this week will be disappointed. Central Oregon is headed for a week of sunny skies and high temperatures in the 50s, according to the National Weather Service in Pendleton.

That is normal for this time of year, said Rob Brooks, a National Weather Service forecaster.

High temperatures normally reach approximately 46 in Redmond this time of year, Brooks said. Last year on Feb. 10, the high temperature in Redmond was 51 degrees.

In Bend this week, overnight low temperatures are expected to be in the high 20s to low 30s. During the day, temperatures could reach the low 50s, and skies will be mostly sunny, according to the National Weather Service website.

No precipitation is forecast for this week.

The forecast is similar in Madras, albeit with a few more clouds. Low temperatures in Madras are expected to be in the high 20s to low 30s, and daytime highs could reach the low 50s. The weather is expected to be dry, although skies could be cloudy Tuesday and Wednesday.

In Prineville, the National Weather Service also expects low temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s. Daytime temperatures are forecast to be in the low 50s.
