Tim Chuey Weather:

Our variable temperature dry and pleasant weather will continue into next week.

An upper level trough of low pressure (“U” shape on orange line) off Vancouver will swing through today with more clouds.  A short lived high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on orange line) will follow and warm us up a bit. A weak frontal system will move in with no serious effect Friday with another frontal system coming through on Monday bringing some cooling. The Perseid meteor shower peaks Thursday through Saturday, but the nearly full moon will probably spoil the show.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Partly cloudy today and tonight, a mix of clouds and sun Thursday AM, sunny Thursday afternoon, mostly clear Thursday night, partly cloudy Friday AM, sunny Friday afternoon, clear in the evening, then partly cloudy Friday night highs 80-85 lows near 50. Partly cloudy Saturday AM, mostly sunny Saturday afternoon, partly cloudy Saturday night through Sunday night, a mix of clouds and sun Monday, then partly cloudy Monday night and Tuesday highs 85-76 lows near 52. (seasonal averages high 84 low 52)

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
