Meteorologist Melissa Frey’s Forecast Discussion:
After a rainy start to the day Monday, Eugenians felt the warmest temperature they’ve seen since November 6, 2013 when the high was 64°. Thanks to a warm front bringing in a warmer air-mass, Eugene hit a high of 63° and we will see that same warmth again on Tuesday.
Before the temperatures crank up in the afternoon, we have to first get through some morning fog. The fog should begin to burn off mid-morning giving way to a mostly sunny afternoon. Highs will be back to the upper 50s and low 60s for much of western Oregon and dry conditions will continue throughout the day.
A storm is headed to the west coast Wednesday, but won’t be very impressive. The jet stream is splitting over the Pacific which will weaken this storm before it makes landfall. We’ll see scattered showers Wednesday night through Thursday. Highs will be back to the mid-50s.
Friday will be dry and partly sunny, as we’re in-between storms. Highs will be back to the upper 50s.
There is a chance for showers over the weekend. Currently these storms will be headed for southern Oregon and Eugene will only be on the outer edge. Either way we’ll stay mostly cloudy with highs in the low 50s and lows in the low 40s/upper 30s. The snow level will fall to 5,000’ by Thursday night.
Have a great Tuesday!
