Tim Chuey Weather:

Saturday will still have plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. The big change starts Sunday when the clouds increase and so does the chance of rain.

GAMEDAY: The Ducks vs Arizona in Tucson: Kickoff  7:15 PM Sunny and hot near 93 cooling to near 78 by the end of the game.

An upper level trough of low pressure is moving toward the Pacific Northwest bringing back the chance of rain with it. Autumn is officially here, but well have one more day of summer-like weather before cooler temperatures and the chance of rain push in. A cold front will weaken as it moves across Oregon, but there will still be a chance of rain by Sunday. Following closely behind will be another frontal system to increase the chances of precipitation.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Partly cloudy with patchy fog this AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, partly cloudy this evening, becoming mostly cloudy late tonight, rain likely (60%) Sunday AM, afternoon showers likely (60%) and cooler, then a good (50%) chance of showers Sunday night, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Monday and Monday night highs 82-69 lows 53-50. Mostly cloudy with a (30%) chance of rain Tuesday AM, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night, just mostly cloudy Wednesday, then mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Wednesday night through Friday highs 72-76 lows near 50. (seasonal averages high 75 low 45)

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.
