Tim Chuey Weather:
More clouds and high temperatures cooling to well below average for this time of the year. Nice and comfortable for the Eugene “Relay For Life” which runs (or walks) from 6PM today until 6 PM Saturday at the Willamette High School track.
An upper air trough of low pressure (“U” shape on the brown line) will sit offshore for a short time. That, when added to a weak frontal system (position shown still offshore) that will brush by Oregon today, will increase onshore airflow enough to bring some clouds and cool us down a bit for the weekend. High pressure (“arch” shape on brown line) will take over after that and will give us great weather into next week.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy today, becoming partly cloudy late tonight, cloudy Saturday AM, partly cloudy in the afternoon and evening, mostly cloudy late Saturday night and Sunday AM, partly cloudy in the afternoon and evening, then mostly cloudy Sunday night highs 79-74 lows near 52. Mostly cloudy Monday AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, mostly clear in the evening, mostly cloudy Tuesday night, a mix of clouds and sun in the AM, mostly sunny Wednesday afternoon, partly cloudy Wednesday night and Thursday AM, then mostly sunny Thursday afternoon highs 80-83 lows near 52.

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.
