Tim Chuey Weather:

A hot Labor Day weekend is great for outdoor activities, but it looks like the heat will hang around through next week. Who knew Summer would return so late?

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 90-92 (hotter on the field). 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 101 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: Sunny and warmer today, clear tonight, sunny and warmer Sunday and still sunny Monday (Labor Day), with clear nights highs 92-95 cooling to near 90 Monday lows 53-50. Sunny Tuesday through Thursday with clear nights, then mostly sunny Friday highs 92-94 cooling to near 90 Friday lows 52-55. (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.
