A Wet August?

August 22, 2008

Snapshot I just noticed this evening that we're within .09" of our average August rainfall.  That shouldn't be too hard to get Sunday evening or early Monday morning.  The approaching cold front sure won't be a soaker, especially compared to the last one earlier this week.  But maybe .20" is a likely number for PDX.  Otherwise nice sunshine again for tomorrow and briefly again Sunday morning.  A bit more easterly flow than expected this morning.  I see Corbett gusted over 30 mph.  I stopped by and fixed the minor networking issue out there yesterday.  Got to have that thing working for the approaching east wind season!  I see the easterly gradient has not returned this evening, so we'll only have a light easterly drift early tomorrow before onshore flow returns late in the day.  But with a warmer airmass, I still expect 5-7 degrees warming.  We hit 81 today, so that should get us in the 86-89 degree range tomorrow.

Not a whole lot to talk about this evening otherwise…I'll be working all next week, so more blogging then.  Enjoy the warm weekend!  Mark Nelsen
