Not the best of Saturdays in the southern Willamette Valley. I really thought the sun was going to make an appearance. Sunday will be a big improvement.

________________

Sorry, but no winner this week.

Here is my weekly weather quiz question for the last time. It’s a weather and the movies question. In the famous 1952 Gene Kelly movie “Singin’ in the Rain” the rain that fell wasn’t just water because the water didn’t show up well enough on film. What was added to the falling water to make it look more like rain? Believe it or not they added milk to the water so that the drops would show up better on film. It looked more like real rain, but I wonder did it start to smell bad by the time they finished shooting? I’ll have another weekly weather quiz question for you starting next Monday. Please remember to post your answer as a comment by clicking on “no comments /comments” in the upper right hand portion of this page under the caption, then add your comment. The first person to post the correct answer will win a week of free personalized weather forecasts tailored to your needs. The answer has to be a comment to win. An email answer will not count.

Your Saturday remaining College football forecast:

The Ducks vs. Arizona State at Autzen Stadium – Kickoff: 7:15 PM mostly cloudy this evening with possible fog, near 58 falling through the low 50s as the game ends. It will get a bit chilly so wear the proper clothing if you’re going to the game. The chance of showers should hold off until later tonight, but you might want to be prepared for a misty drizzle just in case.

________________

 

A weak high pressure ridge (“arch” on the orange jet stream line) will weaken tonight and Sunday then strengthen up again and give us some dry days. High pressure at the surface will combine with the upper air ridge to clear us out for some sunshine Monday and Tuesday, really. Another upper level low (“U” shape on jet stream line) will set up off the coast and a frontal system will combine to possibly bring back the rain by the middle and end of next week.

Marcola Kidnapping Suspects Missing

MARCOLA, Ore. — Lane County sheriff’s deputies are looking for two men who are allegedly involved in a kidnapping that took place in the Marcola.

 

Deputies say on Saturday morning a group of men abducted a male victim, whose identity has not been released, from a convenience store near the intersection of Marcola Road and Camp Creek Road.

 

The victim says the men took him to a remote area where they bound him to a tree and then left.

 

They came back later, he says, and took him to a house on Marcola Road where they assaulted him and put wrist restraints on him.

 

The victim was able to escape and flagged down a driver Sunday morning who took him to the Springfield Police station.

 

Police and the SWAT team served a search warrant on the property Friday morning.

 

The suspects who are taken into custody include Payton C. Benson, 18; Cody R. Morton, 21; and Dustin J. Morris, 21.  All of them are from Springfield.

 

Three people left the property right before the SWAT team arrived, but one of them turned themselves in.

 

The two other people, Kody L. Lawrence, 22, and Jared A. Youngblood, 19, both of Springfield, are still missing.

 

Deputies say they may be driving a 1986 silver BMW 4-door with an Oregon license plate that reads 140 AFB.

 

They are considered armed and dangerous.  Anyone who sees them is asked to call police.
