Tim Chuey Weather:

We’ll start drying out today so that the weekend can be sunny and dry.

High: 67
Low: 46
Rain: slight chance of showers

A weak high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on yellow line) is moving away from the Pacific Northwest with a low pressure trough (“U” shape on the yellow line) pushing in behind it. Next another high pressure ridge will position itself to hold off some storms, but others will be able to slide in under it.  A frontal system has moved through Oregon bringing more clouds with sun breaks, cooler air and showers to the area. Another frontal system will brush by to the North Sunday.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: A mix of clouds and sun today with a slight (20%) chance of  AM showers (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers tonight, just mostly cloudy Saturday, partly cloudy Saturday night through Sunday night highs 57-67 lows 43-46. A mix of clouds and sun Monday, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Monday night, a mix of clouds and sun with a slight (20%) chance of showers Tuesday and Wednesday, mostly cloudy with a (30%) chance of showers Tuesday night and Wednesday night, then mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Thursday highs 67-62 lows 47-43. (seasonal averages high 63 low 41)

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.
