Tim Chuey Weather:

It looks like you’ll need the rain gear for the Friday night High School Football games tonight in Western Oregon.

A reminder: Standard Time returns at 2 AM Sunday November 6th not this weekend.

High: 60
Low: 38
Rain: 60%-90%

The jet stream shows a trough of low pressure (“U” shape on yellow line) bringing clouds and rain back. An area of high pressure (“Arch” shape on yellow line) will clear us out a bit Saturday, but a large upper level low (the next “U” shape on the yellow line) will take over along with a frontal system Sunday that will bring back more chances of rain to the Pacific Northwest.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Patchy AM fog, mostly cloudy with rain becoming likely (60%) by this afternoon (0.10 in. of rain possible), cloudy with evening rain, a good (50%) chance of showers late tonight (0.10 in. of rain possible), mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Saturday AM, partly cloudy Saturday afternoon and night, a mix of clouds and sun Sunday AM, becoming mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Sunday afternoon, then a good (50%) chance of showers Sunday night highs 58-60 lows 45-38 warming to 42 Sunday night. A mix of clouds and sun Monday, partly cloudy Monday night through Wednesday, partly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Wednesday night, then a mix of clouds and sun with a (30%) chance of rain Thursday  highs 58-54 lows 37-45. (seasonal averages high 59 low 40)

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.
