Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
We’re over half way through the year and this is still the driest start to a year that Eugene as ever recorded. It’s been warm too, in fact, this is the fifth warmest start to a summer in Eugene and the warmest start ever recorded for Roseburg.
High pressure is here and it’s not leaving anytime soon.
After just a few brief morning clouds, clear skies are overhead and it’s going to be another toasty day. Highs should top in the low 90s near Eugene and mid 90s in the Umpqua Basin. The coast will have to continue to battle it out with the marine layer each morning but stilly sunny into the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 60s.
This weather will hold through Wednesday. The ridge will begin to break down at the end of the week. This will bring in slightly cooler air and drop our highs to the mid 80s by this weekend.
Have a great Monday!
