2 More Warm Days

May 16, 2007

SnapshotAs you can see to the left, a cold trough is approaching for the weekend.  So enjoy the next two days…they should be just about perfect for May.  It appears that onshore flow will remain quite weak through Friday.  I notice little or no stratus along the coastline, so most likely we’ll see mostly sunny skies too.
There were a few thunderstorms over the Elkhorn Mtns. this afternoon west of the Baker Valley, but they petered out pretty quickly after 5pm.  We could get a round again tomorrow in the Blues or Wallowas.
The trough over the weekend will be a chilly one with plenty of showers both days.
In the long range, maps are showing more of a flat ridge next week, giving us warmer temps, but no unusually warm weather for this time of year…Mark
