Tim Chuey Weather:

Lots of clouds and just a slight chance of showers for your weekend.

High: 68
Low: 43
Rain: 20%

An upper air trough of low pressure (“U” shape on jet stream line) is moving through and a frontal system off shore will stall over the Northern reaches of the area waiting until today or Sunday push through to keep the chance of rain and cooler temperatures with us. High pressure will take over and bring back the sun, for a while at least, early next week.

WEEKEND METEOR SHOWER: The Earth has entered a stream of debris from Halley’s comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak this morning with more than 15 meteors per hour. It will continue for the next few days too. Check for links to a live meteor radar, sky maps and observing tips. Good luck finding them through the clouds, but remember you need to be away from the city lights to see much of anything.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis:  Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain today and tonight, cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Sunday AM, a (30%) chance of rain in the afternoon, a slight (20%) chance of showers and colder Sunday night, a mix of clouds and sun with a slight (20%) chance of showers Monday, then partly cloudy Monday night highs 68-56 lows 48-33. Patchy AM frost, mostly sunny Tuesday, partly cloudy at night, patchy AM fog, partly cloudy Wednesday and Wednesday night, a mix of clouds and sun Thursday, mostly cloudy at night, then mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Friday highs 58-65 cooling to near 60 Friday lows 34-45. (seasonal averages high 61 low 40)

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.
