EUGENE, Ore. -- Light showery conditions will continue on Monday morning, but as the day progresses, expect mostly cloudy skies and decreasing shower chances during the afternoon. The best chance to see showers will be in the higher elevations.
Monday: Mostly cloudy w/ morning showers. Snow level 8,000 feet. Highs in low 60s.
Tuesday: Patchy fog, partly sunny. Highs in middle 70s.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated showers. Snow level 8,000 feet. Highs in upper 60s.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated showers. Snow level 5,500 feet. Highs in low 60s.
Friday: Partly sunny. Highs in upper 60s.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy w/ rain likely. Snow level 6,500 feet. Highs in middle 60s.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated showers. Snow level 4,500 feet. Highs in upper 60s.
A weak area of high pressure will pass through on Tuesday, bringing more sunshine and temperatures back into middle 70s. This warm up will be short-lived with another front approaching the Pacific Northwest.
This front will be weakening as it approaches the coast and likely track into the north. It will still bring a few showers on Wednesday and possibly on Thursday.
Things will dry out some on Friday as another weak high pressure ridge dries us out. Temperatures will also rise into the upper 60s and low 70s.
A stronger system will likely impact the region for the weekend. Right now, models are suggesting cooler temperatures, lowering snow levels, and possibly 12 to 18 hours of steady, much needed precipitation. This rain will not even come close to breaking the drought, but it could delay the consequences of our prolonged drought as we move into late spring.
