METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Happy Friday and Happy Easter! Temps started out in the upper 40s and will likely climb all the way to the mid to upper 60s this afternoon. Sunny skies will return for the afternoon and stay that way through Sunday morning.
The jet stream is split, with half of the energy headed north, and the other half to the south. This leaves western Oregon in between, and storm free!
Saturday will likely be the warmest day of the week and the warmest day so far in 2013 with highs climbing to the upper 60s and low 70s.
Now on Sunday, an area of low pressure will be moving into southern Oregon from California. This will spread clouds and rain across southern Oregon. Douglas county will have the best chances of seeing rain late morning, this is also possible for the coast. For Lane County, high clouds will likely spread north Sunday morning with possible rain in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will still be on the warm side, but a few degrees cooler than Saturday.
High pressure is still in control Monday through Wednesday which will keep us dry, sunny and warm, with highs in the mid 60s.
Have a great Easter weekend!
