Tim Chuey Weather:

The warming trend will culminate with a very warm and sunny Labor Day Holiday weekend.

trough of low pressure (Shaded “U” shape with blue arrows) is swinging through the Pacific Northwest continuing the clouds and cooler temperatures. A high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows) will move in behind the trough and warm us up for the holiday weekend. The Beavers will be home against Sacramento State Saturday at 1PM and the weather will be bright, sunny, warm, and dry with the high temperature in the upper 80s. The Ducks will play against LSU in Arlington, Texas with game time at 5 PM and it will be hot with high temperature about 100 degrees. Don’t know if the roof on the stadium there will be open or closed.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Sunny today, mostly clear tonight, partly cloudy Friday AM, sunny and warmer Friday afternoon, clear Friday night, sunny Saturday, then clear Saturday night highs 79-88 lows 46-50. Sunny and very warm Sunday and Monday (Labor Day) with clear nights, then sunny Tuesday and Wednesday with clear nights highs near 90 lows near 52. (seasonal averages high 81 low 50)

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.
