Tim Chuey Weather:

A wet start to the workweek, that’s for those who don’t get the Monday New Year’s Holiday day off, then dry for one day and it’s back to rain Wednesday.

High: 52
Low: 35
Rain: 60%

frontal system will move into Oregon today bringing more wet weather with it. A weak upper level high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on yellow line) will form holding off the next storm for about a day. Another frontal system will be pushed in by Wednesday by an upper level low (“U” shape on yellow line), so the first week of the New Year with see even more rain. Mt. Ashland is open. Hoodoo is officially open this week (closed Wednesday). Still not enough snow yet for Willamette Pass to open for skiing. Please check their web sites for the latest details and updates.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Cloudy with a good (50%)  chance of rain this AM, rain likely (60%) this afternoon (0.10 in. of rain possible), mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers this evening, mostly cloudy Tuesday, cloudy Tuesday night, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Wednesday, then rain likely (60%) Wednesday night highs 49-52 lows 42-35 rising to near 40 Wednesday night.  Mostly cloudy with rain likely (60%) Thursday, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Thursday night, mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of showers Friday and Friday night, mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Saturday, then cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Saturday night and Sunday highs near 46 lows 36-38.

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.
