EUGENE, Ore. -- We get a taste of spring on the last day of January. A warm front pushed through overnight and will allow temperatures to shoot up into the 60s with partly sunny skies. While high temperatures will be just shy of records, they will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal. The normal high temperature for the date in Eugene is 49 degrees.

Fast Forecast:
Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Highs in low to middle 60s
Saturday: Rain. Snow level 5,500 ft, dropping to 2,000 ft. Highs in low 50s.
Sunday: Rain showers. Snow level 1,000, dropping to 500 ft. Highs in low 40s.
Monday: Mostly cloudy. Highs in mid 40s.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy w/ rain chances increasing overnight. Snow level 1,500 ft. Highs in mid 40s.
Wednesday: Rain. Snow level 5,000 ft. Highs in low 50s.
Thursday: Rain. Snow level 5,500 ft. Highs in middle 50s.

This warm-up will not last long as a strong cold front will sweep through on Saturday morning. The frontal passage will bring heavy rain that could create minor urban flooding issues if the front stalls overhead for an hour or two.

Snow levels will also be a factor as they start around 6,000 feet on Saturday morning and drop to around 2,500 feet by Saturday night. Levels will continue to fall into Sunday morning to 500 to 1,500 feet. Snow is not expected to the valley floor, and lower elevations will see very little to no accumulations.

There will be a piece of energy moving through the region on Sunday afternoon that will bring heavier precipitation rates. If precipitation rates are heavy enough, wet flakes could be pulled to the lowest elevations. About 1 inch of snow is possible above 500 feet during this time.

Cooler and drier weather will stick around early next week with highs in the middle 40s. A warm front will arrive on Tuesday tapping into some subtropical moisture. Mild temperatures and rain showers are expected on Wednesday and Thursday. Right now, models point to a fair amount of precipitation during this time.
