Another nice Fall day today with plenty of sunshine after a very chilly night.

High: 75
Low: 35
Forecast: Sunny and warming.

A  high pressure ridge (Shaded “Arch” shape with blue arrows) is setting up over the Gulf of Alaska in such a way as to send cold Canadian air our way. We’ll have frosty nights followed by pleasant days with sunshine and average temperatures. The high will push a frontal system from northeast to southwest pushing the cooler air through the “back door”at us.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Sunny today, mostly clear tonight, mostly sunny and a bit warmer Friday and Saturday with mostly clear nights highs 72-75 cooling to near 70 Saturday lows 35-38. Mostly sunny Sunday, partly cloudy Sunday night, mostly sunny in the AM, partly cloudy Monday afternoon (Columbus Day) and Monday night, mostly sunny Tuesday, then partly cloudy Tuesday night and Wednesday highs 73-70 warming to 73 Wednesday lows 39-43. (seasonal averages high 70 low 43)

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.
