METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
After a weekend of hot weather we won’t see much relief this week. A ridge of high pressure helped to bring temperatures into the mid 90 for everyone in the valley with triple digits in southern Oregon, the Gorge and in eastern Oregon. Just enough on-shore flow is kicking in today to keep our high temperatures down to about 90 degrees for Eugene, 94 for Roseburg and still cool for the coast in the mid 60s.
A slight trough of low pressure will be to the north of us Tuesday and Wednesday which will keep temperatures moderate. On-shore flow will continue and by Wednesday we should start the day with a few more clouds. Highs will stay in the upper 80s and low 90s inland.
At the end of the week we’ll see a strong ridge of high pressure strengthen over the Pacific Northwest while a thermal trough moves in from Northern California. This combo will bring temperatures back to the upper 90s for the valley, low 100s fro the Umpqua and 70s for the coast.
Have a great Monday and get ready for the heat!
