EUGENE, Ore. -- The upper-level low that brought us showers over the weekend has kept a few showers and clouds around on Monday morning. A high-pressure ridge will start to build into the region this afternoon, allowing for gradual clearing.
Monday: Morning fog and clouds, then gradual clearing. Highs in the upper 50s.
Tuesday: Morning fog, sunny. Highs near 60.
Wednesday: Sunny. Highs in low to middle 60s.
Thursday: Morning fog, sunny. Highs in upper 60s and low 70s.
Friday: Morning fog, mostly sunny. Highs in middle to upper 60s.
Saturday: Partly sunny. Highs in low to middle 60s.
Easter: Partly sunny. Highs in low to middle 60s.
With high pressure in place, expect more sunshine this week as well as warming temperatures. High temperatures on Thursday will peak near 70 degrees, thanks to a boost of offshore flow.
Temperatures will cool some into Easter weekend, as an upper-level trough moves over the top the ridge. This will induce more onshore flow into the weekend and a few more clouds. Overall, the pattern will remain dry through the weekend.
With drier weather's return, expect tree pollen counts to again jump up this week. Right now, alder, birch, conifer, and ash trees are pollinating. Grass is still relatively low but should pick in the coming weeks. If you start having issues and are wondering if you have COVID-19 or it’s just your allergies, the biggest symptom to watch for is a fever, according to the Cleveland Clinic. The World Health Organization says that 88% of COVID-19 patients had a fever and 68% had a dry cough. Allergies can cause itchy eyes and a runny nose. If you have asthma and don’t have a fever, it is most likely allergies, but make sure to check in with your doctor.
