Tim Chuey Weather:

Say goodbye to the sun and hello to clouds and at least a slight chance of precipitation.

High: 67
Low: 46
Rain: 20%

high pressure ridge (“arch” on the orange jet stream line) is strengthening up to give us some more dry days. High pressure at the surface combined with the upper air ridge to give us the benefit of sunshine. Another upper level low (“U” shape on jet stream line) will start to move in today and a more frontal systems will push through by Thursday and the weekend to bring back the rain and cooler 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 this AM, just mostly cloudy this afternoon and tonight, then mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Thursday through Friday night highs 62-67 lows near 46. Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Saturday, mostly cloudy with a (30%) chance of rain Saturday night, cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Sunday, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Sunday night, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Monday and Monday night, then just mostly cloudy Tuesday highs 68-64 lows near 47. (seasonal averages high 63 low 41)

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.
