Redmond lies on the east side of the magnificent Cascade mountain range and in the middle of the Central Oregon high desert. With an average of 8.8 inches of precipitation a year, the city is one of the driest and sunniest places in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, we get an average of 162 days a year – more than Houston, Texas. This means you can recreate and be in the outdoors year-round.

At 3,077 feet, our high desert city may be blessed with a dry climate and a lot of sunshine, but we are also well watered by the runoff from rain and winter snow pack in the Cascades only 60 miles away. This provides both surface water and an underground aquifer of over 2 billion gallons of water per day beneath Redmond.

Our average summer temperatures reach a high of 83° F and a low of 45° F.  Winter temperatures range from 43° F to 22° F.
