Easter Sunday Staying Dry

Thursday’s cold front brought in the most rain that we had seen in three weeks! Eugene picked up over 0.40″ of rain which helped to drop our year to date rainfall deficit to 1.7″.

That storm has now moved on to the east and we’re sitting under clear skies Friday morning. This is making for a very chilly start, in fact the coolest temps we’ve seen in about four weeks. We’re also seeing rather dense fog which is reducing visability in the valley to less than a quarter of a mile in the southern Willamette Valley.

The fog will clear mid-morning and we’ll stay dry today under mostly sunny skies. Highs will return to the low 60s.

Saturday afternoon another front will roll through western Oregon, although not as big of a rain maker as what we saw Thursday. We’ll liekly see showers in the Valley from about lunch time through just before dinner time. The coast will see the showers a few hours sooner.

Easter Sunday is still looking dry and mild with highs in the mid 60s.

Back to back fronts will move in early next week bringing in rain showers from Monday night through Wednesday.

Have a great Easter weekend! ~Meteorologist Melissa Frey
