Tim Chuey Weather:

Wet weather with falling snow levels. Looks like cold and wet will be the watch words through Thanksgiving.

High: 42
Low: 31
Rain: Showers

Advisories:

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM TODAY FOR THE COAST RANGE OF NORTHWEST OREGON AND THE CENTRAL COAST RANGE ABOVE 1,000 FT. , FOR THE NORTH OREGON CASCADES FOOTHILLS ABOVE 1,000 FT, THE CASCADE FOOTHILLS OF LANE COUNTY ABOVE 1,000 FT, AND THE NORTHERN CASCADES INCLUDING THE CASCADES OF LANE COUNTY. A HIGH SURF ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT THROUGH 4 PM TODAY FOR THE NORTH AND CENTRAL OREGON COAST.

The upper air flow is swinging from the northwest over the Pacific Northwest to bring us more moisture. A frontal system has moved through increasing the chances for rain and mountain snow. A series of frontal systems will march through into the weekend to keep us wet and we will seriously cool down.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with showers today (0.25 in. of rain possible), rain and snow showers likely (60%) tonight (snow level 1,000 ft., 1 in. of snow possible, 0.10 in. of rain possible), cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain and snow showers Saturday (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Saturday evening, mostly cloudy Saturday night, then a mix of clouds and sun Sunday and mostly cloudy Sunday night highs near 42 lows 31-35. Mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Monday, a good (50%) chance of rain Monday night, then rain likely (60%) Tuesday through Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) highs near 48 lows near 39. (seasonal averages high 51 low 37)

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.
