METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Happy April Fools Day!
After a weekend of sunshine and record high temperatures across Oregon, the clouds, and for some the rain, has returned.
An area of low pressure is making its way east across Southern Oregon. This storm has brought as much as an inch of rainfall to parts of southern Oregon and about a third of an inch near Roseburg. Areas in Lane county and north have stayed dry overnight, but as this storm moves east, we may get clipped by a shower. Temperatures will still be well above average today, making it to the mid 60s. No joke!
Tuesday and Wednesday will be storm free. High pressure will regain control of the area and we’ll see mostly sunny skies (after some morning fog in the valley), dry weather and temps back near 70 degrees on Wednesday.
A bigger change in the weather comes Thursday and lasts through Sunday. We’ll see a series of storms move through, which will bring back the rain showers and drop our temperatures each day. We should make it to the mid 60s Thursday, but we’re looking at just mid 50s by Sunday.
Have a great April Fools Day…be on guard!
