Tim Chuey Weather:

Now that the rain is gone for now we’d all like to see the sun. That will be a problem in the South Willamette Valley which doesn’t like to let go of the low clouds and fog.

An upper level high pressure ridge (the shaded “Arch” shape) has taken over our weather pattern and turned off the rain. The ridge will keep us dry with our standard issue late night and early AM fog through the rest of the weekend into early next week. The ridge will weaken and move allowing upper level low pressure to take over sending storms our way by next Tuesday. A frontal system will approach the Pacific Northwest Tuesday returning the chances for rain. Today is Groundhog and later I will have a “Groundhog report” letting you know how the various animal prognosticators voted on an early spring or 6 more weeks of Winter.

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.
