An upper air trough of low pressure (“U” shape on the orange jet stream line) is sending even more moist cooler air our way. One frontal system came through already and a second even stronger one is sweeping through Oregon dropping more rain on us. A warm front (still offshore to our Southwest) will come in first then the cold front behind it Tuesday giving us the cloudiness and moisture of early Autumn.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Cloudy with showers likely (60%) this evening, a good (50%) chance of showers tonight (0.10 in. of rain possible), mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Tuesday AM, a good (50%) chance of showers Tuesday afternoon (0.10 in. of rain possible), rain Tuesday night (0.50 in. of rain possible), showers likely (60%) Wednesday  AM, showers with a slight (20%) chance of thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon, a (40%) chance of evening showers, a slight (20%) chance of showers late Wednesday night, just mostly cloudy Thursday, then partly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Thursday night lows 47-40 warming to near 45 Thursday night highs 64-59. A mix of clouds and sun with a slight (20%) chance rain Friday and Saturday, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Friday night, mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of rain Saturday night, a good (50%) chance of rain Sunday, a (40%) chance of rain Sunday night, then a (30%) chance of rain Monday (Columbus Day) highs 63-66 lows 43-50.

Tim Chuey Weather:

Another sunny Summer day ahead with no serious change expected for the next 7 days again. I’m getting used to this and it’s not too bad.

An upper level trough of low pressure (“U” shape on orange line) to the Northwest will help cool us off just a bit. Behind it we are in for lots of sunshine to return, as high pressure (“Arch” shape on orange line) slowly takes toward the weekend. The weather will be great for the Lane County Fair that runs through Sunday.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Mostly sunny today through Saturday with mostly clear nights highs 82-88 lows 49-55. Mostly sunny and warmer Sunday, mostly clear in the evening, partly cloudy Sunday night and Monday AM, mostly sunny and a bit cooler Monday afternoon, mostly clear in the evening, then partly cloudy Monday night through Wednesday highs 89-84 lows 56-52. (seasonal averages high 83 low 51)
