Summer Heat Kicking in Early

Wednesday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
The start to June has been like many days this year…drier and warmer than average! Eugene only dropped to the low 50s Tuesday night and will likely get back into the low to mid 80s by this afternoon.

Our average high temperature for this time of year is just 70°, we won’t be that cool for at least the next seven days. High pressure is keeping our skies clear and the jet stream is far enough north to keep any storms from moving over western Oregon.

We’ll see a few more clouds drifting through Thursday morning and again Monday, but nothing that is expected to bring any rain.

Highs will hold in the low 80s Wednesday through Saturday, upper 70s Sunday and then we’ll see a cooler air mass move in Monday which will bring us back to the low 70s.

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!
