Becoming More Active…

The Weather is about to get a lot more active than it’s been so far this month.

Here’s a break down of each storm headed our way:

A cold front moved through Tuesday, bringing in clouds for most of the day and some light rain late in the day. (Eugene picked up 0.01″) That storm is now marching through Washington, and a new storm is moving through Oregon.

The Cascades picked up some fresh snow overnight, Mt Bachelor reported 3″ and there was almost an inch at Willamette Pass.

A warm front is just barely clipping the western half of the state and is moving from south to north.  It brought moderate rain to the Eugene area starting at about 6 a.m. and by 8 a.m. we had over a tenth of an inch.

As the front moves north, the rain will taper off and the clouds will start to break up.  The chance for showers will remain through about 4 a.m. Thursday, but the heaviest rain will be done by lunch time.

For at least 24 hours, from Thursday morning to Friday morning we’ll see dry conditions, mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures.  Highs in Eugene will be close to 60.

A weak front is lined up for Friday, which will bring in scattered showers to all of western Oregon.

Saturday and the first part of Sunday are looking dry, but the next storm is lined up for Sunday night.  Once this storm moves in, there will be several to follow.

Monday we’ll see just showers, but Tuesday is looking pretty wet and colder than we’ve been.  Freezing levels will likely be between 3,000 and 4,000 feet Saturday through Tuesday.

Have a great Wednesday,
