Tim Chuey Weather:
We are starting the workweek off with a nice sunny and warm day. Particularly for the first day of October. Will the rest of the week look the same?
Forecast: Sunny turning cloudy tonight.
A high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows over Western Canada) is bringing continued sunshine to the Pacific Northwest into this workweek. A backdoor cold front (meaning moving from northeast to southwest) will swing down between Tuesday and Wednesday. That should have just a little cooling effect.
Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Sunny and a bit warmer today, partly cloudy this evening, mostly cloudy late tonight, a mix of clouds and sun Tuesday AM, sunny Tuesday afternoon, clear and a bit cooler Tuesday night, sunny Wednesday, then clear Wednesday night highs 83-73 lows 47-38 warming to 42 Thursday night. Mostly sunny Thursday and Friday, partly cloudy at night, then partly cloudy Saturday through Sunday highs near 76 lows 42-45. (seasonal averages high 71 low 44)
- Forecast for the Umpqua Basin including Roseburg
- Forecast for the South Oregon Coast including Coos Bay and North Bend
- Forecast for the Cascades of Lane County
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.
