Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
A weak cold front moved through western Oregon early Friday morning. Eugene picked up .04″ of rain between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. The brunt of this storm impacted western Washington and Northwest Oregon. Locations on the north coast and in the northern Cascades saw over half of an inch.
This storm has moved south and east and dry air is moving in. We did have some fog that formed after the rain, keeping the valley socked in for the first half of the day. The fog and low clouds should clear midday and we should get some sunshine this afternoon.
High pressure moves in for the weekend and it’ll be back to dry weather through Monday. Clear skies Friday night will allow the temperature to fall to the upper 20s in the valley and low 30s along the coast. Saturday will start out foggy and chilly, but otherwise dry. The fog should clear mid day for a mostly sunny afternoon.
Sunday will be similar but the rain returns Monday night for the coast and Tuesday morning for the valley. A few small storms will move through early next week keeping the showers going through Thursday. Highs will stay in the mid 40s with lows in the mid 30s. Most of the precipitation will fall as snow above 4,000′ by Tuesday night.
Have a great day!
