Tim Chuey Weather:
An upper level low is siting off the Oregon coast spinning showers toward us from the South producing some pretty serious rainfalls. A frontal system will approach the Pacific Northwest about midweek, weak high pressure will take over after that, then another frontal system returns more clouds and the chance for showers on Saturday. The pollen count will stay high enough when the showers taper off to bother those athletes who are allergic. So far, at least, we don’t have smoke from wildfires or grass field burning as we did during the previous Olympic Trials held here.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: A mix of clouds and sun with a good (50%) chance of showers today (0.10 in. of rain possible), partly cloudy with patchy fog late tonight and Wednesday AM, mostly sunny and warmer Wednesday afternoon, partly cloudy Wednesday night, partly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Thursday afternoon and Thursday night lows 45-54 highs 65-77 cooling to 74 Thursday.

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.
