Tim Chuey Weather:

Hope you enjoyed the dry weather Monday. Your Tuesday will get wet and be the beginning of another very wet period.

High: 56
Low: 32
Rain: 1 – 1.6 inches

An upper level low pressure trough (“U” shape on yellow line) will move in following the high pressure ridge (“U” shape on yellow line) that brought us sunshine for Monday. Heavy snowfalls from the latest storm have renewed hope that the ski season is back and here to stay. Today into Wednesday we will see another frontal system followed by more storms later in the week that could bring enough rain to start the rivers to rise again and snow levels to rise. Mt. Ashland was closed today due to a power failure. Hoodoo is open (as usual closed Wednesdays). Willamette Pass is open Thursday through Sunday. Please check the ski resort web sites for the latest details and updates as the new storms could improve the snowpack for skiing.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with rain, heavy at times (1 in. of rain possible) today and breezy (wind: S 15-25 mph), rain (0.60 in. of rain possible) tonight, rain (0.30 in. of rain possible Wednesday, 0.50 in. of rain possible Wednesday night) Wednesday through Thursday, then partly cloudy Thursday night highs 52-56 cooling to 49 Thursday lows 45-32. AM fog, a mix of clouds and sun Friday, partly cloudy Friday night, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Saturday, a (30%) chance of rain Saturday night and Sunday, a good (50%) chance of rain Sunday night and Monday highs 48-50 lows near 33. (seasonal averages high 48 low 35)

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.
