I got busy this evening with the Oregon Chapter American Meteorological Society meeting held here at KPTV/KPDX.  We had what I think was the largest turnout to a non-winter weather meeting in several years.  The Saturday to Tuesday period looks very wet.  In fact the wettest we've seen since the first week of January.  Since my time was limited this evening Bobby Corser, our AMS President, offered to do it:

The Oregon AMS held its march meeting at KPTV this evening. We had 48 people attend! Steve Pierce and Mark recapped this amazing past winter. Maps, pictures, and a whole lotta snow were discussed. It was really interesting to look back and see how the models handled the arctic air. We discussed the gorge wind event and the amount of damage it caused. Thanks to everyone who showed up tonight. I do appreciate it. Onto the weather this evening! Sunny skies will continue tomorrow as the ridge remains. Rain returns this weekend. Its a return to more of a normal weather pattern. Again thanks to everyone again who came the meeting tonight. See you in April ! (Bobby Corser)
