An upper air trough of low pressure (“U” shape on the orange jet stream line) is sending even more moist cooler air our way. One frontal system came through already and a second even stronger one (shown offshore) is sweeping into Oregon dropping more rain on us.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with showers today (0.25 in. of rain possible), showers likely (60%) tonight (0.10 in. of rain possible), cloudy with a good (50%) chance of showers Tuesday AM, a good (50%) chance of rain in the afternoon, rain Tuesday night, showers with a slight (20%) chance of thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon, then showers likely (60%) Wednesday night highs 64-57 lows 47-42. Mostly cloudy with a (30%) chance of showers Thursday, a slight (20%) chance of showers Thursday night, a (30%) chance of showers Friday, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Friday night, partly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Saturday, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Saturday night, then mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of showers Sunday highs 60-66 lows 44-47.
