No Big Thaw On The Way, But No Major Snow Either

Feb 28, 2019

It isn’t going to warm up very much in western Oregon over the next few days. But other than a few passing flurries or snow showers, there isn’t any accumulating snow in the forecast, either. High temperatures will struggle to reach the mid-40’s through the weekend.

National Weather Service meteorologist Colby Neuman says the slow thaw is probably a good thing. “If we were to get a sudden warm-up right now with all of that snow on the ground, there would be some pretty big issues from flooding,” he said.

Neuman says the average high in the Eugene-area at this time of year is in the mid-50’s. He says a system could bring moisture back to the area by next Tuesday, but it will probably fall as rain in lower elevations.
