Tim Chuey Weather:

It looks like we are in for another week of off and on rain.

High: 55
Low: 40
Rain: 0.50 inch likely

high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on yellow line) pulled away from us and a trough of low pressure (“U” shape on the yellow line) took over returning the wet weather pattern.  Another high pressure ridge cleared us out today. A warm front pushes through returning the rain to the Pacific Northwest. There will be even more frontal systems (position shown is Tuesday) sliding over the high pressure that will keep the showers around into next week.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly cloudy with rain (0.25 in. of rain possible) today (Presidents’ Day), mostly cloudy with rain likely (60%) tonight (0.10 in of rain possible), cloudy with rain likely (60%) Tuesday AM, a good (50%) chance of rain in the afternoon (0.10 in of rain possible), cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain (under 0.10 in of rain possible) Tuesday night, mostly cloudy with rain Wednesday, then a good (50%) chance of showers Wednesday night highs 48-55 lows 44-40. Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Thursday and Thursday night, a  slight (20%) chance of rain Friday, cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Friday night, mostly cloudy with a good (50%) chance of rain Saturday, rain likely (60%) Saturday night, then mostly cloudy with rain and snow likely (60%) Sunday (snow level 1,000 ft.) highs 54-48 lows near 35. (seasonal averages high 52 low 35)

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.
