Tim Chuey Weather:

Watch the clouds increase along with the chances for rain. The first day of October will usher in real Fall weather.

High: 70  Low: 45  Chance of Rain: 50%

A  ridge of high pressure (“Arch” shape on orange line) has moved out as a trough of low pressure (“U” shape moving in behind) sends moist cooler air our way. A frontal system is taking its time pushing through and will be followed by others proving that Autumn is really here.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers this AM, a good (50%) chance of showers this afternoon and evening (0.10 in. of rain possible), a slight (20%) chance of showers late tonight (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), a mix of clouds and sun in the AM, a slight (20%) chance of rain Sunday afternoon, a (40%) chance of rain in the evening, mostly rain likely (60%) late Sunday night and Monday AM, showers likely (60%) in the afternoon, then showers Monday night highs 67-70 cooling to 67 Monday lows 45-52. Mostly cloudy with showers Tuesday AM, rain Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday AM, showers likely (60%) Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening, a good (50%) chance of showers late Thursday night and Friday AM, then partly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Friday afternoon highs 64-60 warming to 63 Friday lows near 48. (seasonal averages high 71 low 44)

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.
