Tim Chuey Weather:

Rain for your Tuesday and it should stay wet through New Year’s Day.

High: 52
Low: 43
Rain: 100%

Upper level low pressure (“U” shape on the yellow line) has taken over from the high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on the yellow line) that is moving away from us and a series of surface storms starting with this frontal system (moving into Oregon) will march through. Another frontal system later in the week, just one of many, will keep us in a wet weather pattern. Mt Ashland has reopened for the season. Hoodoo says they will be open now through Saturday December 31st. Still not enough snow yet for Willamette Pass to open for skiing. Please check their web sites for details and updates.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Cloudy with rain today (0.25 in. of rain possible), rain (0.25 in. of rain possible) and breezy (wind: S 15-25 mph gusts to 40 mph) tonight, rain Wednesday through Thursday, then rain likely (60%) Thursday night highs 47-52 lows 40-43 cooling to 39 Thursday night. Mostly cloudy with rain Friday, showers likely (60%) Friday night, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Saturday and Saturday night (New Year’s Eve), a good (50%) chance of rain Sunday (New Year’s Day), then cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Sunday night and Monday highs 50-46 lows near 40. (seasonal averages high 45 low 33)

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.
