Fog rolls into the Columbia River Gorge near The Dalles

EUGENE, Ore. - Fog got your throat?

The inversion that buried Eugene under pea soup on Monday was largely confined to the Willamette Valley.

The Oregon Coast and the Cascades at 4,000 feet enjoyed a sunny day in the 60s on Monday.

That ceiling dropped on Tuesday, as a fog layer persisted over some lower elevations.

"With such strong inversion over the region, low stratus blanketed the valleys," the National Weather Service said Tuesday. "Some areas were clear overnight, but low clouds quickly returned to those areas."

The Weather Service assembled a timelapse video of low clouds pushing east through the Columbia River Gorge into The Dalles area Monday night into Tuesday morning, using images from a USDA Forest Service camera.
