EUGENE, Ore. -- After a beautiful start to the morning on Tuesday, clouds will be building throughout the day. While Tuesday will be dry and mild, it will all come to abrupt end on Wednesday morning as the first of several storms move ashore this week.

Fast Forecast:
Tuesday: Increasing clouds, showers late. Highs in mid to upper 60s
Wednesday: Rain. Highs in low 60s
Thursday: Showers. Highs in upper 50s
Friday: Showers w/ possible t-storm or two. Highs in mid to upper 50s
Saturday: Rain. Highs in mid 50s
Sunday: Rain. Highs in mid 50s
Monday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated am showers. Highs in low to mid 60s

Wednesday’s frontal system will spread rain to the region starting in the early morning hours and will bring locally breezy conditions to the coast. Coast will likely see gusts up to 35 to 40 mph. This system will also be enforced by the remnants of Typhoon Hagibis, which made landfall near Tokyo, Japan, as a Category 2 storm this past weekend, killing 72 people.

Wednesday’s storm system will likely bring 0.75 to 2 inches of rain to the Coast Range and Cascade Foothills by early Thursday. Rainfall will be lighter in the Valleys, closer to 0.25 to 0.75 inches. Expect heavy rain at times, but the fast-moving nature of the system will limit rainfall totals.

Behind the front on Thursday, expect cooler air aloft to move into the region. This will lead to unstable conditions, triggering showers across area during the afternoon and overnight hours. In addition, models point to some veering in the winds with height. This will need to be watched for the potential of rotating cells for Thursday afternoon. These cells may produce waterspouts near the coast and a couple funnel clouds inland. The peak of coastal waterspout/tornado season runs from Sept. 15 to Dec. 31.

Models continue to show more disturbances moving through the region on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. With us being early on in the "Rain Season," river flooding should not be an issue, as river levels are well below flood stage. Urban flooding will be possible through the weekend.
