Before moving to Eugene, I tried to do some research on the “notorious” weather. What I found was two types of info: charts/graphs and anecdotal garbage (trust me, these “it rains 9 months per year” anecdotes are usually greatly exaggerated). Neither were quite what I needed. Now that I actually live here, for the benefit of others interested in the area, I decided to build a day-by-day log of the weather. Instead of focusing on the numbers, I am attempting to give a real world summary of how the weather feels each day.

You will not find data here on the daily rain in inches or barometric pressure (whatever that is). Instead, I log things like whether it rained during the day or the night (a big difference for me). I also try to describe the “off and on” nature of the daily weather. For example, it often rains quickly, and then the sun comes out, then it rains again, then the sun comes out again, etc. That’s actually a really beautiful day, but if you just looked at the scientific-y chart, it would appear to be a gray miserable day.

So anyhoo, here it is in all it’s glory. I’ll keep it going for a year or so. Let me know what you think:

Eugene weather log, March 27, 2010: Bright sunny clear skies this morning with chilly temps in the low 40’s. Beautiful!

Eugene weather log, March 30, 2010: What?! Snow falling this morning, heavy at times. Too bad it all melted as soon as it hit the ground. Air temps are around 38 degrees this morning. Now it’s 10:38 am and the sun is trying to break through the overcast. It would be cool to have snow and sunny skies in the same day. Update: A little sun did peak through the overcast a couple of times today, but no big sunny skies. Rain stopped for most of the day. Temps are still in the 40’s. Tonight is supposed to be colder so hopefully we might see some snow on the ground tomorrow.
