CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
The first of a few rainy days is about in the books, so far as of (6p), Eugene has picked up .13″ of rainfall. That’s the most in one day since March 20th. We’ll see additional showers but more sporadic overnight, with temps continuing to stay mild, in the low 50s.
Showers will continue on and off Friday through most of the weekend. We’ll see some windy conditions at times as the storm fronts blast onshore mainly along the coast but could see a couple of breezy afternoons inland. With the storms pushing in each day, there’s also a slight chance for afternoon thunderstorms in the mountains along with the rain.
By Saturday, highs will only be in the upper 50s and snow lines falling down close to Pass level. Ski resorts will enjoy some fresh late season powder, maybe 5-10″, while drivers over the Passes should be ready for some fresh snow along the roads.
There’s a chance next week’s storm heads further north and misses us on Monday. Otherwise, it looks like we’ll have to wait until about Wednesday for some significant drier weather.
Have a great Friday!
