Wet Night Ahead

October 30, 2009

A real quick post tonight.  Looks like cold front is moving towards the coastline quickly.  A nice shot of wind just ahead of the front.  At 10pm it’s gusting to 53 mph on ODOT’s new sensor on the Astoria-Megler Bridge.   It’s turning breezy here in the Metro area as well.

No changes in my thinking for next week.  ECMWF and GFS are a bit at odds for strength of ridging.  We either stay dry all week or get brushed by some rain Wednesday or beyond.  It sure is going to stay mild though.

Enjoy the weekend, not much rain after tomorrow morning.
