Monday found last weekend’s relatively warm and sunny days transitioning into bone chilling cold dampness, as a lingering weeks long atmospheric inversion returned to Eugene, Ore.

According to the “Weather Channel” area resident’s can look forward to a continued wet trend through Saturday morning, when a dryer weather pattern will bring to the region partial sunshine and low temperatures in the 30s.
