METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Mostly sunny skies reigned Saturday, and high temperatures climbing back into the 80s inland and upper 60s along the coast. High, cirrus clouds filtered in during the afternoon ahead of the next storm system just off shore.
The morning of Mother’s Day will be mostly cloudy and dry! By the afternoon the storm system’s weak front will push onshore, bringing light showers across the area. The showers will mainly be Florence to Eugene, north. High temps will be slightly cooler, in the mid 70s inland and low 60s along the coast.
A better chance of rain comes Monday as the storm system moves through. Scattered showers can be expected along the coast, in the Willamette Valley and in the Cascades; isolated showers in the Umpqua. High temps will be in mid to upper 60s inland and upper 50s along the coast. Coastal areas can expect the winds to pick up as well, with gusts near 30 mph.
Dry weather will return Tuesday and Wednesday with highs slightly above average in the upper 60s and low 70s. Another chance for rain comes Thursday and Friday, but so far it’s not looking to dump a whole lot.
Have a wonderful weekend!
