METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
After dropping to -7 degrees just before midnight Saturday in Eugene, we broke the old record low of -6 set back in 1972. It was the 3rd coldest night ever since 1890. We also fell to -10 degrees Sunday morning making it 2nd coldest night ever in Eugene. We didn’t brake the record low temperature because, coincidentally, the coldest night ever happened on this date in 1972 where the temperature fell to -12 degrees.
Sunday and Monday will continue to be mostly sunny with highs in the low 30s along the coast and 20s inland. Overnight lows Sunday will be slightly warmer than Saturday night, but still be in the single digits inland and upper teens along the coast.
Clouds will increase Tuesday with a weak storm, we may see a few light rain showers and flurries as well. High temperatures will be back into the upper 30s by Tuesday, which should help begin to melt the snow.
We’ll have a better chance to see the snow melt as temperature climb into the mid 40s by the end of the week. But with the warmer temperatures comes two storms that will bring rain showers across the area.
Have a super Sunday!
