Nice Day

June 12, 2007

SnapshotHope you all enjoyed the cloudy, cool, and wet weather over the weekend.  Today was nice, but what a chilly start.  My cucumbers and tomatoes are NOT liking these temps.  So it definitely IS payback time for all that May sun and warm temperatures.  Another weak trough is moving by to the north tonight and tomorrow, pushing cloud cover and even a few light showers into Northwest Oregon.  The chance for rain south of Salem or east of the Cascade crest is just about zero.  Weak ridging again moves overhead Thursday and early Friday.  That means more sun and warmer temps at least for Thursday.  Then a strong trough moves down over the Northwest…guess what…over the weekend!  So plan on another cool weekend again.
Long range models are each a bit different for next week.  ECMWF continues to be quite strong with ridging and offshore flow next week, easily pushing our temps to 90 or above.  GFS has been waffling around a bit though.  So I threw in temps near 90 by Tuesday-Wednesday timeframe…Mark
