Tim Chuey Weather:

Your Tuesday will see more sunshine than we had Monday. Still rather pleasant weather for this time of the year.

The upper air flow continues to be onshore and that means don’t look for any serous changes in the weather through the middle of next week. Weak waves will move onshore only to bring the chance of coastal drizzle mainly early Friday as a weak frontal system moves in. There will be some warming again by the weekend.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: AM clouds, mostly sunny this afternoon, partly cloudy tonight, cloudy Wednesday AM, a mix of clouds and sun Wednesday afternoon, partly cloudy in the evening, mostly cloudy Wednesday night and Thursday AM, sunny Thursday afternoon, then clear Thursday night highs 75-80 lows 48-52. Sunny Friday, clear Friday night, then mostly sunny Saturday through Monday with mostly clear nights highs near 85 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.
