Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:

A weak front will pass through Thursday night that could drop a few showers after 4 p.m. What we do see will be light and will wrap up rather quickly. The bigger story is Friday’s storm. This cold front will not only bring showers for all of us Friday night and rain Saturday, but it will also bring in some very chilly air.

The showers will begin in the late afternoon and will continue through early Sunday morning. Highs will struggle to get out of the 40s in Eugene on Saturday while the Cascades Passes stay close to freezing.

The snow level will drop bot 3,000 feet Saturday and 2,500 feet Sunday. This means another round of snow is on the way for the higher foothills, passes and ski resorts. The passes will likely see at least 8 inches by Saturday afternoon.

It’ll be back to dry weather Sunday and we should stay that way through Tuesday morning, although temperatures won’t warm much.

Have a great day!
