Despite the rain showers Monday, it was still warm! High temperatures reached the low 60s in the southern Willamette Valley and Umpqua Basin and the freezing level is up to 5,500’. With winds out of the south and a jet stream coming to Oregon by way of the tropical Pacific, we’re going to continue to see warm and humid conditions this week.

Much of Tuesday we’ll be in between storms, although we’re still likely to see isolated showers and mostly cloudy skies. Highs will stay in the low 60s.

The next storm hits overnight into early Wednesday and will bring with it heavy rain and breezy conditions. We’ll see a second storm Wednesday night, followed by another on Thursday. This will make for a very soggy middle of the week. Highs will drop to the mid to upper 50s.

The one shot we have this week for dry weather will be Friday, but the next storm comes rolling in Saturday afternoon. Heavy rain can be expected Saturday night and Sunday. Highs will stay in the upper 50s through the weekend.

Have a great day! ~Meteorologist Melissa Frey
