EUGENE, Ore. -- The KEZI 9 News StormTracker 9 weather team is tracking fog again this Thursday morning with visibility down to a half of a mile or less in spots.
This is due to a strong inversion trapping moisture in the Valleys. Offshore flow and weak November sun will help erode fog to the north and south, but Eugene will likely be stuck in the fog again this afternoon.
Thursday: AM fog/PM mostly cloudy. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Friday: AM fog/PM partly cloudy. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Saturday: AM fog/PM mostly cloudy. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Sunday: AM fog/PM partly cloudy. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Veteran’s Day: Mostly cloudy. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Tuesday: Partly Sunny. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Wednesday: Partly Sunny. Highs in mid 50s to low 60s
Where the fog erodes, temperatures will be closer to the 60s. Where it doesn’t, temperatures will likely stay in the 50s. Expect more of the sunshine to occur at the coast and the mountains.
Overall the pattern will see little change through the weekend with light winds and low-level inversions. This had led to the air stagnation advisory being continued into next Tuesday. Air stagnation increases chances for poor air quality due to smoke and other air contaminants trapped in near the ground.
There will be some weakening of the ridge on Friday into Saturday. This will allow a weak system to bring light rain to Washington/Oregon stateline, but won't make it further south into our area.
Unfortunately, we will continue to be dry through the weekend. The viewing area has only seen a trace of moisture so far in the month of November.
