S-L-O-W Weather

After the wild weekend, it seems appropriate that the weather would slow down for Thanksgiving Week.  But what a slowdown!  The next 7-10 days look real quiet.  The main message is ridging or split flow through at least early next week.  One system makes it through late Thursday and Friday and might give us a burst of wind (depending on the model), but otherwise it’s makeup time for all the busy weather apparently.

    I’m liking that 1034mb high over the Columbia Basin.

    The visibilities outside were very thick out in Hillsboro this morning! When I woke up, i couldn’t see what was 30 feet ahead (around there). Looks this is the last of nice days until late this weekend.

    I can’t remember if Split Flow means sunny/dry or foggy/dry.

    • Ryan (Walnut Grove) says:

      If an inversion sets up you get the fog. Not necessarily related to the split flow itself.

      Split flow does typically mean sunny & dry though.

    • gidrons says:

      Depending on the position of the split relative to Oregon, it can mean storms get stretched apart or pulled apart as they approach. Can then end up having two jets – one south of us and one north of us. I don’t recall it setting up many inversion/foggy situations, but that doesn’t necessarily mean sunny either — just weaker storms. Not all El Ninos are the same. I think the most noticeable deviation was the one in the late 60’s.

  10. Fog lifting, becoming another nice day…

    39.5° after a low of 35.6……..very light east wind

    • Tyler in Hazel Dell says:

      Fog dissipated here a while ago. When I left work last night it was foggy the entire way from Orchards until about St. Johns Road, then the fog was gone.

    • biochemist says:

      Extremely foggy in hillsboro and doesn’t look like it will lift in the near future. brr….
