Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
The rain that we picked up Sunday night in Eugene pushed us up to 7.63” of precipitation in February. This is the most rain/snow we’ve seen in any one month since March of 2012 when we got 9.94” (some of which was snow as well). The month’s not over yet and do expect more rainfall, although I don’t see us passing the 8” mark.
A warm front is making its way from south to north across western Oregon Monday. This is keeping the showers going early Monday, but they will taper off as we head into the afternoon. This warm front is not only bringing the showers and clouds, but also a much warmer air mass. Highs will likely climb to the mid to upper 50s in the Valley and at the Coast, and to the low 60s in the Umpqua Basin.
Tuesday we’ll likely start with foggy conditions, but otherwise dry and partly sunny into the afternoon. Highs will still be on the warm side.
The next storm rolls in Wednesday. The Coast will see showers early in the day, but it won’t make it to the Valley until the afternoon. We’ll continue to see showers Thursday as well, but it’s back to dry conditions for Friday.
I hope you have a great start to the week!
