Tim Chuey Weather:

Look for lots of clouds and a chance of showers today through the week. Keep your fingers crossed. The weekend is looking bright and dry.

High: 67
Low: 40
Rain: showers

high pressure ridge (”Arch” shape on the yellow line) that held off storms is moving away to be followed by a trough of low pressure. A frontal system in combination with the trough of low pressure has returned us to wet weather. A couple of upper level disturbances will slide over us keeping the wet weather around.  Another frontal system will push through Oregon Wednesday with more showers. If rainy days and Mondays get you down, cheer up because so far the weekend forecast is for sunshine.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers today (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), a (30%) chance of evening showers, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) showers late tonight (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), AM clouds, a mix of clouds and sun with a slight (20%) chance of showers Wednesday afternoon, mostly cloudy with rain Wednesday night and Thursday AM, showers in the afternoon, then mostly cloudy with showers likely (60%) Thursday night highs 57-67 lows 40-45 cooling to 42 Thursday night. Mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Friday and Friday night, a mix of clouds and sun with a (30%) chance of showers Saturday, mostly cloudy Saturday night, then just partly cloudy Sunday through Monday highs 57-66 lows 40-43. (seasonal averages high 64 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.
