Tim Chuey Weather:

Mother Nature still doesn’t know the definition of Summer as more clouds and precipitation hang around for a while longer.

Advisories: NONE AT THIS TIME.

An upper level trough of low pressure (“U” shape) is moving through the Pacific Northwest, but a series of ripples in that flow will be followed by an even stronger low that will slide along the coast. That will keep us alternating between periods of clouds and cooler temperatures, and maybe even some light rain or drizzle, then back to some more sunshine and warming temperatures. A frontal system will be approaching the coast Saturday bringing more clouds by the end of the week.

Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers this AM, mostly cloudy with a (40%) chance of showers this afternoon and tonight, a (30%) chance of showers Wednesday AM, a slight (20%) chance of showers in the afternoon, then just mostly cloudy Wednesday night and Thursday AM, a mix of clouds and sun Thursday afternoon, then partly cloudy Thursday night highs near 72 lows 50-47. A mix of clouds and sun and warmer Friday, mostly cloudy Friday evening, partly cloudy late Friday night, a mix of clouds and sun Saturday and Sunday, partly cloudy Saturday night, then partly cloudy Sunday night and Monday highs 75-80 lows near 50. (seasonal averages high 81 low 51)

The Pollen forecast for the Eugene/Springfield Area is for trees to be low, weeds to be moderate, and Grass to be very high. (Provided by Allergy and Asthma Research Group)

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.
