Quiet Monday

Wow…to be honest the weather is really boring this evening.  The system moving by to the north the last 12 hours or so just about killed the cold high pressure in the Columbia Basin, but it’s still there and wind in the Gorge never turned westerly.  Now it’s back to ridging overhead later tomorrow.  That allows the surface high eastside to strengthen again, bringing back the cool easterly wind.  Not much wind though until Wednesday.
Next chance for rain is Friday and long range maps definitely have a switch back to more active weather beginning this weekend.  There still seems to be some sort of split-flow, but wet either way.  Maybe just not so wild like the weather we saw in November.
No sign of arctic air or low snow levels in the next 10 days for you snow lovers…Mark

    Camas Mom you will be in for it if your out there. Knowing my location is very wind prone I will probably gust over 60mph as I usually do in the very very strong events.

    Guys us eastsiders are really going to be in for it friday PM! Looks like the surface flow that is already incredibly strong will add a strong sub 990mb low coming in from the SW to create an insane east wind event. Looking forward to it.

  5. Derek-West Gresham says:

    I mean -6.9mb actually.

  6. Derek-West Gresham says:

    TTD-DLS gradient is at like -6.6mb right now. Probably gusting to 40mph by tomorrow AM at my place.

    Here is a short vid I took of the snow out at Western in Monmouth. Believe it or not nothing stuck, but a few miles down the road in Rickreal and Dallas they had 1-2 inches on the ground.

    Long range forecasts in Alaska show HIGH temps in the low teens. IMO we should get arctic outbreak around christmas.

  11. Here’s a little time lapse of my “snowstorm” from last week. Beaverton/Tigard approx. 300ft. elevation. http://soapbox.msn.com/video.aspx?vid=55476a20-f8f4-4255-bbb4-8ac1ee753c6a

    What dose accuweather base their screwball forecasts on. I was looking at the models and cant figure which one they are looking at. Must be a combo of models or something???? They are showing lots of colder weather starting Tuesday. Of coarse tomorrow it will be starting Wednesday.LOL No I do not believe really any forecast past 5 days. I was just forecast surfing looking for any hope of cold weather.
