  • Missouri State gets $440K for playing Ducks in Autzen
    But while it by all accounts looks like an easy win for the Ducks, the players are wary. They need look no farther than up the road in Corvallis, where the Sacramento State Hornets surprised Oregon State 29-28 in their opener.

Tim Chuey Weather:

Look for more clouds and cooler than average temperatures with a slight chance of showers developing by Saturday night.

College Football Forecast: Ducks vs. Missouri State at Autzen Stadium: Kickoff at 12:30 PM  Partly cloudy and cool 65 with increasing clouds  and warming to near 72 by the end of the game.

An upper air trough of low pressure (“U” shape over the Pacific Northwest) is ushering in a moist marine airflow pushing many more clouds our way. A frontal system will move in which should produce some showers possibly as soon as Saturday evening ahead of the front. More frontal systems will march through giving us the Autumn weather that comes with the season and the Autumnal Equinox which occur at 2:05 AM PDT Thursday. I don’t know about you, but I have been seeing trees turning colors and losing their leaves for the past month which seems to indicate that Autumn-like clouds and low temperatures that we had for the latter part of this Summer triggered an early start to the Fall season.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Partly cloudy this evening, mostly cloudy tonight, a mix of clouds and sun Saturday with increasing clouds to mostly cloudy East of I-5, partly cloudy Saturday evening and mostly cloudy at night with a slight (20%) chance of rain approaching from the West of I-5, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) of rain Sunday AM, a  slight (20%) chance of showers Sunday afternoon and evening, partly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Sunday night and Monday AM, then partly cloudy Monday afternoon and Monday night lows 40-55 cooling to near 50 Monday night highs 72-77. Partly cloudy Tuesday through Friday highs near 80  lows near 52. (seasonal averages high 77 low 47)

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.
