CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Second day in a row where Eugene, Roseburg, Corvallis and Salem saw the warmest day of the year so far! We’ll stay mild overall tonight with lows again in the mid 40s and likely just under 50 for most of the Umpqua. Saturday morning will likely stay mild but a few degrees cooler as we start the transition back into a more typically spring forecast.
While we should stay mostly sunny for the bulk of the day, some high clouds and eventually thicker ones will move back in by the evening. Before that though, the Oregon Ducks spring game should be dry with an 11am kickoff in the mid 60s and no chances for rain coming for Saturday. Sunday’s Eugene Marathon will be mostly cloudy, with mid 40s or so at the 7am start but mid 60s for early afternoon. A stronger cold front will move through the state late Sunday night into Monday bringing the first rain chances in well over a week. Lightly scattered to isolated showers and upper 50s to low 60s will be the start of the work week.
It’ll be short-lived, dry again by Tuesday with the ridge starting to rebuild Wednesday, bringing back the sunny skies and 70s and it appears the early summer-like weather will hold throughout the rest of next week.
Have a great weekend!
