Tim Chuey Weather:
The hot summer weather is still hanging on.
We will be staying under a strengthening high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape covering the Pacific Northwest) for the week assuring that we will stay from very warm to hot.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Sunny and still very warm today, hot Wednesday, and very warm Thursday with clear nights highs 92-95 cooling to 92 Thursday lows 49-55. Sunny Friday and Saturday with clear nights, mostly sunny Sunday, mostly clear at night, partly cloudy Monday AM, then mostly sunny and cooler Monday afternoon highs moving between 95-85 lows near 52. (seasonal averages high 80 low 49)
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.
