Wednesday’s Weather Discussion from Meteorologist Melissa Frey:
Ironically, after a very mild spring season, the final full day of spring will actually look more like early spring than summer. An area of low pressure is slowly making its way east today and this will keep showers going off and on all day. A fairly heavy batch of showers moved through the Eugene/Springfield metro area between 9 and 10 this morning. We also have a very chilly air mass in place which will hold our highs to the mid 60s. Thundershowers are again across the Cascades and in central Oregon.
By Thursday this storm will be on to the east and high pressure will return. Thursday will be the transition day with partly sunny skies and highs near 70°. Friday will be even warmer with highs in the mid 70s. I can’t rule out a passing isolated showers either Thursday or Friday, but it’s more likely than not that it will be dry.
By the weekend high pressure will be in full force. High swill be back near 80° with sunny skies overhead.
The next series of storms begins to move in Sunday afternoon. This should drop out temps for early next week and keep the rain going.
Have a great day!
