Drying Out for the Weekend

Melissa-Frey-500x500-250x250Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:

This month of February has brought in more rain to Eugene than any other month since November of 2012. We’re up to 7.51″ for the month so far, and if we pick up another tenth of an inch, which is likely next week, you’d have to go back almost two years to find that much rain in one month. We also have yet to see two dry days in a row this month, but that will happen this weekend.

A ridge of high pressure is moving in over the Pacific Northwest. This will block any other major storms from moving in through the weekend. Friday will be the transition day with a few isolated showers and/or drizzle possible early in the day, but otherwise clearing skies into the afternoon and evening. Highs will make it back to the low 50s in the Valley.

Saturday and Sunday we’ll be dry and at least partly sunny through the afternoon, but chilly and foggy start. Lows will fall to the upper 20s and low 30s and highs will stay in the low 50s in the Valley, and upper 50s/low 60s for the Coast and Umpqua Basin.

The next storm moves in Monday which will bring in light rain for most of the day. We’ll see a few isolated showers Tuesday through Thursday.

Have a great weekend.
