Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Evening Forecast Discussion: 

Another soggy day with more than .50″ of rain in Eugene through midday. And there’s more coming overnight tonight as the low pressure dips into the state bringing plenty of showers, an occasional thunderstorm and snow lines falling to at or just below Pass level tonight.  With snow lines dropping below the Passes, there will likely be a light accumulation of 1-2″ for early morning travelers.

With the cold nature of the air (its Arctic origin basically), with some sun breaks thrown in, we may be in store for some isolated thunderstorms, especially late afternoon and early evening on Wednesday . Highs will stay unseasonably cool for this time of year, in the low 60s Wednesday.

Dry time looks to finally move back in by next Thursday and Friday with high pressure bringing sunny skies and finally a return to highs in the 70s. But new models are indicating that the next front will move through Saturday evening so for now, Duck fans may have to bring the rain gear for the 7pm kickoff with Cal.

Have a great Wednesday!
