Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Monday Forecast Discussion:
What a weekend huh? Upper 60s and low 70s throughout western Oregon with hardly a cloud in the sky! Monday is starting out very similar. We do have a few cirrus clouds moving in which will increase throughout the day as high pressure begins to move east. High temperatures will still make it to the upper 60s and low 70s in the Valley. Our average high for this time of year in Eugene is just 60°.
Small disturbances will begin to move into the Pacific Northwest about every 24 hours, but most of the energy is headed well to the north of us. We’ll basically see partly to mostly cloudy skies with highs in the low 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. The Coast and Cascades may see a few sprinkles here and there.
By Thursday a cold front should bring not only clouds, but eventually rain to most of western Oregon. The storm will move through quick, timing out right now for Thursday night and Friday morning.
Easter weekend is looking quite mild. We’ll still see partly to mostly cloudy skies and possibly some light drizzle early Sunday, but otherwise dry with highs in the mid-60s.
Have a great start to the week! ~Meteorologist Melissa Frey
