Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A great way to start the work week as Eugene saw a high of 75 degrees. That’s the warmest afternoon so far this year! Many inland areas all topped 70 degrees and we’ll stay mild going into tonight. Marine clouds are back keeping the coast fairly cloudy and cool tonight, but everyone will see some showers as a weak cold front moves across the state Tuesday.
Tuesday morning will start foggy, but most areas (except the coast) will see mostly sunny skies before the front arrives Tuesday evening. Central coast sees showers by mid-afternoon, while the Willamette Valley won’t see showers until later on Tuesday night. The front should weaken enough so any showers leftover will finish up quickly Wednesday morning. Areas in the Umpqua likely won’t see any rain at all, or a late night sprinkle. Highs tomorrow will still be warm in the low 70s and upper 60s ahead of the rain.
Wednesday and Thursday will start with morning clouds but back to sunny skies quickly as the high pressure ridge rebuilds over the Northwest. However, highs will be cooler, back down into the mid 60s. However, by Friday and the weekend, temps will be back up into the low 70s with plenty of sunshine into early next week.
Have a great Monday night!
