EUGENE, Ore. -- High pressure and offshore flow coming down the Cascades will strengthen on Wednesday. The offshore flow will bring dry, mild air into the interior valleys, rising temperatures into the upper 60s and low 70s.
Wednesday: Patchy fog, sunny. Highs in upper 60s and low 70s.
Thursday: Sunny. Highs in low to middle 70s.
Friday: Mostly sunny. Highs in low to middle 60s.
Saturday: Partly sunny. Highs in low to middle 60s.
Easter: Mostly sunny. Highs in low to middle 60s.
Monday: Patchy frost, sunny. Highs in middle 60s.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Highs in middle 60s.
Dry, mild weather will continue on Thursday with continued temperatures in the low to middle 70s. Temperatures will still be short of record highs: Eugene at 79 in 1989 and Roseburg at 83 in 1959.
Offshore winds will weaken and switch back to onshore flow Thursday night into Friday, as the high pressure ridge weakens and retreats west. This will allow a weak disturbance to increase marine clouds on Friday morning. Onshore flow will also cool temperatures as much as 10 degrees. Similar conditions are expected on Saturday, allowing for marine clouds to keep partly sunny skies in the forecast throughout the day.
The high-pressure ridge will restrengthen Saturday night into Sunday, keeping drier and seasonable temperatures into the forecast into early next week.
