Tim Chuey Weather:

Here comes a “picture perfect” Labor Day Holiday weekend. Please remember not to drink and drive a car or boat and wear your life jacket.

high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows) moves in and warms us up for the holiday weekend. The Beavers will be home against Sacramento State Saturday at 1PM and the weather will be bright, sunny, dry and quite warm with the high temperature near 90. The Ducks will play against LSU in Arlington, Texas with game time at 5 PM and it will be sunny and hot with high temperature about 100 degrees then slowly cooling as the game progresses. Don’t know if the roof on the stadium there will be open or closed which would make a difference in the conditions on the field.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly sunny and warmer today, clear tonight, sunny and warmer Saturday, clear Saturday night, sunny and warmer Sunday, then clear Sunday night highs 84-95 lows 45-53. Sunny and very warm Monday (Labor Day), clear Monday night, then sunny and still very warm Tuesday through Thursday with clear nights highs  90-93 lows 50-55. (seasonal averages high 80 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.
