EUGENE, Ore. -- It was a cloudy, cold start to the week, but clouds are quickly clearing, leading to sunshine for the rest of the day. High pressure will build into the Pacific Northwest throughout the day with temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s.
President’s Day: Mostly sunny. Highs in low 50s.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Highs in low 50s.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Highs in low 50s.
Thursday: Partly sunny. Highs in low 50s.
Friday: Mostly sunny. Highs in low 50s.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy w/ PM showers. Snow level 4,500 ft. Highs in low 50s.
Sunday: Rain. Snow level 3,500 ft, dropping to 2,500 ft. Highs in upper 40s.
Overnight, under clear skies and light winds, fog will be likely to form in the interior valleys. Temperatures overnight will also fall into the upper 20s and low 30s, meaning that freezing fog and frost is possible.
After morning clouds and fog on Tuesday, skies will clear and temperatures will warm into the low 50s. Air will continue to dry out on Tuesday due to offshore winds, and this means the skies will likely remain clear overnight. Also, overnight lows will be in the 20s.
This pattern will continue on Wednesday with sunshine and mild temperatures. On Thursday, a weakening, dying cold front will move through, bringing a few more clouds to the region. That said we should still remain dry and sunshine will return on Friday.
The next weather maker will arrive on Saturday afternoon through Sunday. This brings the rain and mountain snow back to the forecast. There are still some questions in the models to the exact timing and strength. Behind the front, colder air will move in with the snow level between 1,000 and 2,000 feet by late Sunday.
