Tim Chuey Weather:
The rain season starts today. It may have officially began October 1st, but now it will be for real.
Forecast: Mostly cloudy w/rain
A high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows) continues to be centered over the Pacific Northwest, but it is weakening. An upper level low is moving inland in Southern California and will spin up clouds at us. A frontal system will slide through the Pacific Northwest Friday starting a parade of storms that are headed our way. Another surface frontal system that will slide through by Sunday will increase the clouds and the chance of rain too. More frontal systems will parade through Sunday and Monday. We are finally going to see our first significant rain of the season. Note: Remember that the roadways can get very slipperywhen we get rain falling on very dry pavement. The rain water brings up the oil that has been deposited on the pavement making a slippery coating until enough rain can wash it away.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with a (30%) chance of AM rain, rain becoming likely (60%) this afternoon (0.25 in. of rain possible), rain tonight (0.25 in. of rain possible), cloudy with rain likely (60%) Saturday AM, a good (50%) chance of rain in the afternoon (0.15 in. of rain possible), cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Saturday night and Sunday, then rain likely (60%) Sunday night highs 59-68 lows 49-46. Mostly cloudy with rain likely (70%) Monday and Monday night, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Tuesday and Tuesday night, mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Wednesday, then a (30%) chance of rain Wednesday night and Thursday highs 63-60 lows 47-42. (seasonal averages high 66 low 42)

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.
