METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
The rain started falling around 10 p.m. Monday night and we picked up .06″ of rain by 9 a.m. This is the most we’ve seen in five days and brings our total for the month up to 2.01″ which still leaves us in the driest start to the year ever recorded in Eugene, and those records go back to the late 1800′s!
We’ll likely see a few more isolated light showers today, but Wednesday and Thursday will bring in even better chances for scattered showers as an area of low pressure move across the state. The air mass will be fairly unstable and thundershowers are also a possibility both days. Despite staying mostly cloudy and showery, we’ll still see our high temperatures climb with each day. We’ll be in the low 60s Wednesday and Thursday.
Once we get through this storm, we’re in the clear as we head into the weekend. The showers will taper off Friday and we should stay dry all the way through Sunday. High temperatures will continue to climb, making it to the mid 60s Friday and upper 60s for Saturday and Sunday, perfect Easter weather.
Have a great rest of your Tuesday!
