Friday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
The first twelve days of May were far from normal. We had six days over 80°, when normal is just in the mid 60s, and not a single drop of rain fell in Eugene. Monday, the 13th day of the month, will be the first day we see somewhat normal weather for May.
The first in a series of cold fronts moved in late Sunday night. This brought in 0.02″ of rain to Eugene overnight, along with mostly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures. The jet stream has leveled out and will bring several small storms to western Oregon over the next seven days.
The second front is moving through Monday mid-day. We may see a few showers from this, but mostly just cloudy skies and highs will stay in the mid to upper 60s. We’ll be in between storms Tuesday and Wednesday, which will allow at least partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 60s.
A larger front is tracking to move in Wednesday night. This will bring scattered showers late Wednesday through early Friday and highs will fall to the mid 60s.
Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon should stay dry with highs in the mid to upper 60s.
Have a great Monday!
