Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Day two of a very un-July like forecast brought showers and again, some thunderstorms, most of which were confined to the northern end of the valley. Officially, Eugene picked up about .21″ of rain today. That’s the most rain we’ve seen since June 27th of this year and the most rain seen in the month of July since 2011!
Tonight, most of the showers will taper off as the storm moves inland into Washington but we’ll keep the cloud cover through Thursday AM. Lows tonight will fall back into the low 50s and stay pretty soggy as well. Tomorrow, as things dry out, we start to see the heat moving back in for more typical July weather (read as heat) by the weekend.
Be ready for the heat to move back in for the rest of the week as hot high pressure from the Great Basin shifts westward helping to push the jet stream back up into Western Canada. For us that means highs climbing back into the upper 70s tomorrow, and then into the low 90s by the start of the weekend. In fact, besides some early morning clouds tomorrow, we’ll be sunny and dry through most of next week as well.
Have a great Thursday!
