It’s another beautiful day in western Oregon! The high temperature in Eugene hit 84° Wednesday, that’s 14° above average, and Roseburg hit 90° for the first time this year! Thursday is already on track for a similar warm up with highs in the mid 80s in the valley, upper 80s in the Umpqua Basin and mid 60s along the coast.
High pressure is keeping our skies clear and the jet stream is far enough north to keep any storms from moving over western Oregon. As the jet stream slowly slides south this weekend, we’ll see more on-shore flow and slightly cooler temperatures…but only slightly.
Highs will hold in the low 80s through Saturday, upper 70s Sunday and then we’ll see an even cooler air mass move in Monday which will bring us back to the low to mid 70s next week. There are still no storms in sight, and therefore no rain in sight either.
The one concern this week will be pollen levels. The grass pollen has been “Very High” since the start of the month and isn’t expected to drop anytime soon. Keep the tissues handy!
Have a great day!
