EUGENE, Ore. -- It’s a pretty quiet morning in western Oregon with partly to mostly cloudy skies with a few showers in the region. Skies will clear this afternoon with high pressure slowly builds into the region.

Fast Forecast:
Monday: Mostly sunny with a few flurries in Cascades. Snow level 2,500 feet, rising to 5,000 feet. Highs in middle to upper 50s.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Highs in middle to upper 50s.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with drizzle. Snow level 2,500 feet, rising to 4,000 feet. Highs in middle to upper 50s.
Thursday: Patchy fog, mostly sunny. Highs in upper 50s and low 60s.
Friday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated showers. Snow level 3,500 feet, rising to 4,500 feet. Highs in middle to upper 50s.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated showers. Snow level 2,500 feet, rising to 4,500 feet. Highs in middle to upper 50s.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy w/ isolated showers. Snow level 3,000 feet, rising to 4,500 feet. Highs in middle to upper 50s.

This afternoon temperatures will climb into the middle 50s. Clear skies tonight will allow for radiation cooling and drop to near freezing. That will likely lead to widespread frost on Tuesday morning.

Sunshine will continue on Tuesday. Tuesday night into Wednesday will see clouds increase with drizzle in spot as a weak low-pressure system drops into the region. Any precipitation will be light.

Skies will be slowly clearing heading into Thursday morning with chance of morning fog. Sunshine will dominate the first day of spring with highs near 60.

Precipitation chances will again increase into the weekend as both major global forecast models point to a strong low-pressure system dropping out the Gulf of Alaska. There is still disagreement on the exact track, with the European ECMWF keeping the low off-shore, keeping us mainly dry and milder. The American GFS has the low run the Oregon coastline, bringing prolonged rain and mountain snow and cooler temperatures. The storm track will become clearer as we get closer to the weekend, but right now there is an isolated chance. Remember models are just gossip and not gospel, so things can and will change.
