Very Heavy Rain Moving In

September 18, 2010

Check out the radar at 8:50pm:

Line of heavy rain moving north up the Valley…looks like all areas east of Hillsboro are going to get soaked soon.  This line was less intense when it passed through Salem and dumped about .50″!  No lightning yet, but I’ll keep the live radar on it here:


A Wet Night Ahead!

September 18, 2010

Rain arrived a few hours earlier than I expected, enough to ruin my bike ride.  That was one of the sweatier rides I’ve done…couldn’t hardly tell the difference between that and the rain pelting my face.  But at least a nice picture (on our FOX12Weather Facebook page).  Here’s a nice image showing the north-south oriented moisture plume over us right now: 

Plenty of rain to go as NESDIS Satellite Precipitation Estimates folks say in their midday discussion.

A warm, wet, and humid night ahead…slightly unstable too, so maybe a flash of lightning???  Most likely not but it’s possible.
