Bend Oregon Weather

Bend, Oregon has great all around weather and it looks like our Indian summer is coming to an end.  If the weather man is right we should get some much need precipitation this weekend.7-Day Forecast for Latitude 44.06°N and Longitude 121.3°W (Elev. 3598 ft)  

Bend's four seasons are one of the many reasons people are moving to Bend and buying Bend Oregon real estate.  Spring, Summer, Winter and fall there's a festival in downtown Bend to celebrate the season.  Since we don't do much skiing in the winter we choose to head south in our motor home for a few weeks.

Of course our summers are beautiful.  This past summer while most of our out of state relatives were in the high 90s and/or over 100 degrees we were have days in the 80s with cool evenings to cool the house down.
