Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
If yesterday’s 90° high felt warm, today’s expected high of 92° will as well. The Umpqua Basin and central Oregon will be in the mid 90s and the coast will stay in the mid 60s.
We’re over half way through the year and this is still the driest start to a year that Eugene as ever recorded. It’s been warm too, in fact, this is the fifth warmest start to a summer in Eugene and the warmest start ever recorded for Roseburg.
High pressure is anchored over the western half of the U.S. and will keep us parked in the low 90s all the way through Thursday.
By Friday this ridge will begin to break down and a trough will move in from the Gulf of Alaska. This will bring in slightly cooler air and drop our highs to the mid 80s by this weekend and low 80s early next week.
Have a great Tuesday!
