Tim Chuey Weather:

You’ll notice the difference in cloud cover and temperature today.

High: 72
Low: 33
Rain: 20% by tonight

high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on the yellow line) gave us sunshine and warmer temperatures. There will be a cool down today due to a weakening frontal system that’s still offshore and an upper level trough of low pressure (“U” shape on yellow line) behind the ridge.  Then it’s back to sunny and warmer again but not as warm as it was Monday afternoon.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis:  Partly cloudy and a bit cooler today, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of drizzle this evening, mostly cloudy tonight, AM clouds, a mix of clouds and sun and cooler Wednesday afternoon, partly cloudy Wednesday night, partly cloudy with patchy fog Thursday AM, mostly sunny in the afternoon, then mostly clear Thursday night highs 72-60 warming to 64 Thursday lows 39-33 warming to 36 Thursday night. Mostly sunny Friday, mostly clear Friday night, mostly sunny Saturday through Monday highs 73-78 cooling to 76 Monday lows 40-47. (seasonal averages high 66 low 42)

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.
