Justin’s Tuesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Showers continue to move across Western Oregon tonight changing over to snow above 3000 feet. Both Passes should see a nice inch or two by Wednesday morning. Elsewhere, its starting soggy and cloudy but we should see a break in the showers. Lows tonight will fall into the lower 40s and upper 30s.
While the rain will be light throughout the day, another system moves through late Wednesday into Thursday with more showers and mountain snow. That one has a stronger push of Alaskan air pulling snow levels down to 2000 feet and likely 1500 feet in some heavier showers. There won’t be much accumulating snow at the lower levels but hills around Eugene/Springfield may see some snow flurries mixing in early Friday morning. That’s when the coldest air will start to move in but also when the moisture will dry up.
With the cold air and high pressure moving in, you can bet this weekend will be chilly with highs in the mid 40s and lows near freezing. BUT- nice to see another dry and (mostly) sunny weekend in February. And it looks like it’ll continue into next week as well.
Have a great Wednesday!
