Tim Chuey Weather:
Forecast: sunny & warm
An upper level trough of low pressure will slide closer to us bringing some clouds and cooler temperatures. The high pressure ridge that gave us the sunny and hot weather has a little to the east allowing the trough to move in behind it. A weak frontal system (shown offshore) will approach Oregon today and be past the area by Friday only adding some clouds, but no rain. That means lots of sunshine and warm weather for the Oregon Country Fair this weekend.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: AM clouds, mostly sunny today, mostly clear tonight, partly cloudy Friday AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, mostly clear Friday night, mostly sunny Saturday, then partly cloudy Saturday night highs 84-86 lows 50-55. Partly cloudy Sunday AM, mostly sunny Sunday afternoon, partly cloudy Sunday night and Monday AM, mostly sunny Monday afternoon, then partly cloudy Monday night through Wednesday highs 85-82 lows near 54.

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.
