A Nice Day!

April 8, 2011

Finally, I think today was the first day that gave us warm temps AND solid sunshine.  We hit 61 degrees here in Portland, one of the few days 60+ so far this season.

A weak system moves through tomorrow, but probably no rain…definitely not a blue sky.

Sunday and Monday it’s back to the same slop.  The “slop” Monday will be accompanied by much cooler temps; the snow level may drop as low as 1,500′ again.

Next chance for dry weather is Tuesday.  ECMWF is hinting at more ridging late next week; NCEP seems to think that might be the way to go.  If so our 7 day temps will be too low for next Thursday and Friday.

Check out the national rainfall map for March.  No big surprise eh?  REAL WET on the West Coast!
