Tim Chuey Weather:

A new week as we look forward to the official beginning of Autumn Thursday.

The jet stream has settled down and will keep our weather pretty stable for most of the week as a high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape) builds in. A frontal system is falling apart as it comes through just like the one Saturday giving us the Autumn weather for one more day anyway. That will change back Tuesday and continue through Thursday when the Autumnal Equinox occurs at 2:05 AM PDT we will still have pleasant sunshine and comfortable temperatures.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of drizzle or sprinkles with patchy fog this AM, partly cloudy this afternoon, mostly clear and cooler tonight with patchy fog late at night and early Tuesday AM, mostly sunny Tuesday afternoon, partly cloudy Tuesday night, mostly sunny Wednesday, then mostly clear Wednesday night highs 76-83 lows 44-48. Partly cloudy Thursday through Saturday night, then a mix of clouds and sun Sunday highs 80-85 cooling to 78 Sunday lows 48-54. (seasonal averages high 76 low 46).

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.
