Tim Chuey Weather:

Rainy days and Monday’s get you down? (Remember the Mamas and Papas song Monday, Monday?) We can use the rain and it will only last one day. Dry weather returns for the rest of the week with rain possible next weekend.

High: 49
Low: 30
Rain: 60%

An upper level high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on the yellow line) continues to hold control over the Pacific Northwest. A weak frontal system will be pushed in by an upper level low (“U” shape on yellow line) Monday giving us a short burst with chances for rain. Then high pressure returns and  it looks like the rest of next week will be dry. The snow levels still will not come down low enough or long enough to increase the possibility of some serious mountain snow. Mt. Ashland is closed now due to poor snow conditions. Hoodoo is officially open (as usual closed Wednesdays). Willamette Pass will be open on a very limited basis for today. Please check their web sites for the latest details and updates.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with areas of fog, possibly dense fog (visibility under 0.25 mi. possible), this AM, mostly cloudy with rain likely (60%) this afternoon (0.10 in. of rain possible), rain tonight (0.25 in. of rain possible), patchy AM fog, mostly cloudy Tuesday, mostly cloudy with patchy fog late Tuesday night and Wednesday AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, partly cloudy Wednesday night with patchy fog late highs 49-45 lows 36-30. A mix of clouds and sun Thursday and Friday with partly cloudy nights, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Saturday, then mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of showers Saturday night and Sunday highs 44-49 cooling to 45 Sunday lows near 32. (seasonal averages high 46 low 34)

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.
