From the National Weather Service offices in Oregon -- Dry weather is forecast throughout the weekend for Oregon. East of the Cascades expect increasing westerly winds, mainly in the wind prone areas like the Columbia River Gorge. Wind speeds and relative humidity are not forecast to reach a critical combination. Warm and drier conditions will develop Sunday across the state. Weak offshore winds will build Sunday and Monday across the top of the Oregon Cascades, bringing stronger winds into eastern Oregon. Fire danger indicators will rise on Sunday and Monday. A cold front Monday night and Tuesday will bring gusty east winds to Oregon without rain.
