CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Nice to see some light showers back in our May forecast. We officially picked up .09″ of rain as of 11pm. That’s the most we’ve seen since April 19th! A few leftover showers will move through late tonight, with mostly cloudy skies keeping lows sitting close to 50 overnight.
Light showers will be on and off most of Thursday, wrapping up by Friday morning. Fans of the mild weather will enjoy the next couple of days as highs won’t move out of the 60s and low 70s. If you are heading to Howe Field for the NCAA Regionals, the Ducks first pitch at 6pm against BYU might see some light showers and a temp around 63.
Friday and the weekend also stay mild overall, with a few weak systems bringing a mix of clouds and some afternoon sun and highs in the mid 60s. Your weekend plans won’t be too impacted by rain showers, the best chance right now looks to be late Saturday into Sunday morning. Overall, if you’re planning to head to the baseball Civil War match this weekend, I don’t think the weather will impact your plans.
Have a great Thursday!
Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
