Eugene-Springfield is normally pretty sunny from mid April-mid October. From June-August, there's usually next to zero clouds and rain (though this June was unusually rainy). So our summers are definitely a lot drier than in the midwest.

Summer temps are usually in the 80s-90s during the daytime, and cool down to the 40s-50s at night (unlike the midwest). However, we usually seem to get 3 days in a row every summer where it gets to over 100.

Where I live in Eugene it starts getting rainy mid-September and the real cloudy days are here by October. It's usually very rainy from then until about the beginning of February then moderately rainy until about mid June (although this year spring was wetter than usual.) From mid September till mid June it's usually grey and cloudy more often than not, usually with an accompany drizzle. We do sometimes get breaks with a couple of sunny afternoons in the middle of winter but it's not something you can count on. We typically get a couple of days of colder weather in the winter and a couple of days of very hot weather in the summer.

Check out my profile page (see link below) where I am keeping a day by day log this year of the weather. I'm not focusing on actual temperatures each day (you can get that from many weather sites), but rather a short description for each day. I started this in March 2010 and hope to keep doing it at least until March 2011 so that I have a full year of "notes". Of course, it's not very scientific, and each year is different, but I thought I would do it anyway.

My main reason for trying this is that the official weather data for this area seems very misleading to me. It does not specify whether the rain falls during the night or during the day (at least, I don't know where to find this data). That makes a big difference for me.

Also the official weather data does not specify whether the rain falls continuously or "for 30 minutes and then the sun comes out, and then later it rains/suns again". For me there is a big difference between these two. The rain/sun cycle is not a problem for me; in fact, it's really one of the nicest things about the weather here. On the other hand, continuous rain during the day bugs me.

Anyway, here's the link with my daily updates:

Default Thanks Mr Eugenified!

Thanks we're considering a move to Eugene and your daily weather updates gave me a much better idea of what to expect.

Glad you like them. Good to know someone is actually reading this thing. Haha!

It's kinda strange how they are in slightly chopped up reverse order when you read them on the screen, but that's because of the way the profile page is ordered. Maybe I will consolidate them all together one day on one single page on my website so that they can be read top to bottom in "old to new" date order.

Anyhoo, thanks for the feedback.

I am from Eugene and when I tell you that it rains 8-9 months out of the year it is no exaggeration. Last year it rained all the way through the middle of June. On the other hand summers are really nice here. What I dislike is that when it rains it is not a hard rain then it's over. Instead it is a light rain throughout the whole day.

ILoveSunshine is right. I've been here 25 years. We don't get a spring in Eugene, just an extension of winter. Fall on the other hand is usually pretty nice. July, Aug, Sep, and about half of October are really the only "nice" months.

yes, it's very deceptive when you look at weather websites it shows that the rain in inches is pretty average compared with many other places in the US. The difference is that in Eugene it can take days to rain 1/2 an inch of water, it's just a constant dripping and spitting and misting that goes on for most of the year with brief sun breaks throughout the day.

I think it's lovely, I wish my hair agreed (poof!).

Also, if you like to see amazing dramatic cloud formations there's no place better to do it.
