Forecast: possible showers
A high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on orange line) has moved past us now. A weak frontal system slid by bringing more clouds and just the slightest chance of showers Sunday night and a better chance of rain today as an upper level low (“U” shape on orange line) moves in. Summer is almost here! It officially begins with the Summer Solstice at 4:09 PM PDT Wednesday June 20th. It looks like a closed (not in the main jet stream circulation) upper level low will move closer to Oregon bringing clouds and a slight chance of showers ahead of it and pushing a frontal system through between Friday night and Saturday AM continuing the chance of showers for the weekend and the Olympic Trials.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers this AM, a slight (20%) chance of showers this afternoon (under 0.10 in. of rain possible), a slight (20%) chance of showers this evening, just mostly cloudy late tonight and Tuesday, partly cloudy late Tuesday night, a mix of clouds and sun Wednesday AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, then mostly clear Wednesday night highs 63-75 lows 47-44.

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.
