Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
The fog kept most folks in the valley cooler than expected as Eugene only hit the mid 50s today, however another dry afternoon (when the sun finally did make an appearance) and a chilly but clear night to start. Overnight, the fog will settle back in and lows will finally settle down into the low 40s and upper 30s.
Wednesday and Thursday, a couple of storms will move through bringing more showers at the coast early on Wednesday, inland valleys by the PM hours. Thursday will also see a scattering of showers on and off throughout the day. Neither of these storms are very large and with a split flow, there’s not a lot of energy with the showers that will move through, so no flooding concerns. Snow levels will slowly fall to around 5000 feet with a rain/snow mix in the mountains.
Friday sees a dry day before more showers are back on Saturday. This weekend’s storm will carry a bigger punch, but most of it will be centered on Southern Oregon and Northern California. Coverage of showers for Saturday will be more widespread for Douglas and Coos County residents, more isolated the further north you go. Sunday, the low pressure center moves inland and all of Western Oregon gets a better chance for scattered showers throughout the day.
Have a great Tuesday night!
