Tim Chuey Weather:

Wind and rain for the next couple of days then the winds calm down, but the rain continues.

High: 55
Low: 38
Rain: 0.50 inches today

Advisories:  A HIGH WIND WARNING IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM TONIGHT FOR THE NORTH AND CENTRAL OREGON COAST. A HIGH WIND WARNING IS IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM UNTIL 10 PM TODAY FOR THE NORTHWEST AND CENTRAL COAST RANGE OF OREGON. A WIND ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM UNTIL 10 PM TODAY FOR THE ENTIRE I-5 CORRIDOR FROM PORTLAND THROUGH EUGENE. 

A strong upper air trough of low pressure (“U” shape in the jet stream is setting up along the Oregon coast keeping the moisture level up. A frontal system moved southward on the California coast spinning some moisture northward, but not reaching us. Another frontal system will push into Oregon bringing colder air south producing falling temperatures and falling snow levels as the next cold front sweeps through just in time for Thanksgiving which will be wet and there may be some new snow in the mountains for the skiers (Hoodoo and Willamette Pass ski areas are hoping to open the season this Friday as long as they get enough additional snow.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with rain (0.50 in. of rain possible) and windy  (wind S: 20-30 mph gusts to 50 mph) today, rain (0.25 in. of rain possible) and breezy (wind: S 15-25 mph gusts to 45 mph in the evening) tonight, rain Wednesday (0.50 in. of rain possible) and Wednesday night, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of AM rain, rain Thursday afternoon (Thanksgiving Day) and Thursday night highs 55-46 lows 44-38. Mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Friday, a good (50%) chance of rain Friday night, mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Saturday, mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Saturday night and Sunday, rain likely (60%) Sunday night, then mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Monday highs 47-53 cooling to 49 Monday lows 40-43 cooling to 39 Sunday night. (seasonal averages high 50 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.
