We’ll end the week in real Summer style as we welcome Autumn Friday morning. Big change by the end of the weekend.
A high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape) has settled in across the Pacific Northwest giving us a pretty stable mild weather pattern. A weak front will move through the Northern reaches of Oregon, but the rain should stay to our North through today. The Autumnal Equinox occurs at 2:05 AM PDT Friday, but it will still feel like late Summer. We could see some precipitation pushing through the Pacific Northwest by the end of the weekend into early next week as a frontal system moves in Sunday.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Partly cloudy today and tonight, AM clouds, mostly sunny Friday, partly cloudy Friday night, mostly sunny Saturday, becoming mostly cloudy Saturday night with a slight (20%) chance of rain late highs 85-80 lows 56-52 and back up to 56 Saturday night.
