A Couple of Drier Days Ahead

Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion: 

Dense fog has filled back in across the valley and most of Western Oregon tonight. The rain has left but the fog is spitting some drizzle throughout the night and visibility will be an issue, likely down to a quarter mile or less for most of the night. Take care on the roads as lows will hold in the mid 40s, right where the dewpoints sit.

Wednesday and Thursday, we’ll be in between storms, so its back to the typical November weather, morning fog and some partial afternoon sun. Although, temperatures are warming above the surface again so there’s a chance Eugene/Springfield area gets trapped under another inversion like Monday and we’re stuck in the fog. We’ll see if that happens, if so, expect highs to struggle to get out of the 40s. Otherwise, highs from the coast to the inland valleys will be in the mid 50s.

By Friday, another storm moves a front across the region, bringing some light showers mainly in the evening and overnight. Into the weekend, including the Duck game against the Mighty Utes, more showers are likely, along with a shot of colder, Canadian air. So expect highs to drop back to near 50 and freezing levels dipping below the Passes to around 3500 feet. Rain will change over to snow at Pass level by late Saturday into Sunday. Not a lot of accumulating snow, but a few inches for sure.

Have a great Wednesday!
