EUGENE, Ore. -- Tuesday’s "Bomb Cyclone" is starting to move off to the east after battering southern Oregon and northern California with rain, snow and wind. Here in western Oregon, most of us received rain or a wintry mix much of Tuesday, while Cascades saw blizzard conditions at times.
Wednesday: Isolated morning snow showers, gradual clearing. Snow level 500 ft. Highs in upper 30s
Thanksgiving: Sunny. Highs in upper 30s
Black Friday: Sunny. Highs in mid 30s
Saturday: Mostly cloudy w/ chance of PM wintry mix. Snow level 1,000. Highs in upper 30s
Sunday: Iso. showers. Snow level 3,500 ft. Highs near 40
Monday: Iso. showers. Snow level 4,500 ft. Highs near 40
Tuesday: Partly sunny. Highs in low 40s
As the storm moved, it did give Eugene/Springfield a taste of snowfall with a dusting to a few inches over the South Hills.
The rest of the day will remain in the mid to upper 30s with skies trying to clear heading into the overnight hours. The Cascades could see an additional 1 to 4 inches with on and off snow showers. Chains and tractions tires are required for pass travel.
Wednesday night will be cold, with many locations dropping into the 20s. This could lead to ice forming on many roads across the region on Thursday morning.
Thanksgiving will be cold with highs in the 30s, with a high of 38 in Eugene. Thanksgiving normally averages a high temperature of 50 degrees. The coldest Thanksgiving in Eugene was 30 degrees back in 1896.
This weekend, models suggest another low-pressure trough moving into the Pacific Northwest on Friday night, lasting through Sunday. While this system will not be nearly as strong as the last storm, it will come ashore around the Oregon/California line. This could bring some low-level winter precipitation late Saturday into Sunday as moisture overruns the colder air in place. Models also suggest warming temperatures through the weekend, leading to mainly rain after as start of potential winter precipitation.
