Tim Chuey Weather:

A wet day today for your Friday, but a beautifully bright weekend will follow.

High: 75
Low: 46
Rain: decreasing chances

A weak high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on yellow line) will be moving over and then away from the Pacific Northwest with a low pressure trough (“U” shape on the yellow line) pushing in behind it. That means we are back to a wet weather pattern. A frontal system is moving through as the high pressure ridge moves on. Another more complex storm system (shown offshore) will hit the coast toward the weekend continuing the chance for rain.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with a (50%) chance of rain this AM, a slight (20%) chance of rain this afternoon (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), and evening, partly cloudy late tonight through Saturday night, a mix of clouds and sun Sunday, then mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Sunday night highs 66-75 lows 46-50. Mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of showers Monday, a (30%) chance of showers Monday night, a mix of clouds and sun with a slight (20%) chance of showers Tuesday, mostly cloudy with a (30%) of showers Tuesday night, a (40%) chance of showers Wednesday and Wednesday night, then a mix of clouds and sun with a good (50%) chance of showers Thursday highs 64-57  lows 45-40. (seasonal averages high 62 low 40)

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.
