As several of you have noted, the GFS has again been trying to constantly warm us up with ridging the last week or so. And then later runs back off on the ridging. Remember back in May-June we saw the same thing in the 5-10 day forecast range. Hard to believe that at one point earlier this week I had 90’s in the forecast for Sunday? Instead we continue with moderate onshore flow for the foreseeable future. That DOES keep us from really heating up, so a perfect summer weather pattern continues into at least early next week.
Onshore flow should be a bit stronger tomorrow, so I’ve chopped about 5 degrees off the high temperature forecast. I could easily be wrong, so anywhere from 78-82 is possible tomorrow at PDX…Mark
