Tim Chuey Weather:

The path to Christmas day will have a mixture of fog, freezing fog, clouds, and a chance of rain and back again.

High: 45
Low: 30
Rain: freezing fog

A cold front is pushed through Oregon bringing only the chance for a little rain. Another high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on the jet stream) will bring back the fog with possible freezing fog. Low pressure will follow, then another high pressure area alternating the fog and the chance of rain. Still not enough snow for Willamette Pass or Hoodoo to open for skiing, but Mt. Ashland has opened.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with areas of fog and freezing fog this AM, mostly cloudy with areas of lingering fog this afternoon, mostly cloudy with areas of fog and patchy freezing fog late tonight and very early Tuesday AM, mostly cloudy with patchy lingering fog in the afternoon, a (40%) chance of showers Tuesday night, AM fog with a mix of clouds and sun and a slight (20%) chance of showers Wednesday AM, cloudy in the afternoon, mostly cloudy with patchy fog Wednesday night highs 37-45 lows 30-36 cooling to 27 Wednesday night. Mostly cloudy with patchy fog Thursday and Thursday night, cloudy with a (30%) chance of rain Friday, mostly cloudy Friday night, a mix of clouds and sun Saturday, mostly cloudy at night, then a mix of clouds and sun with a slight (20%) chance of rain Sunday (Christmas Day) highs near 40 lows near 33. (seasonal averages high 45 low 33)

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.
