    Pretty strong band of showers moving up the valley

    Cliff Mass with some interesting data. I think the best idea the folks on the tornado video had this day was “lets go”:

    • W7ENK says:

      That is AMAZING data! 😯

      So, the central pressure in the middle of this tornado was ~939mb, it looks like? 151 mph winds makes this a mid-strong EF-3, so it was probably a good 1/4 mile wide?

      Now, remember back to the first Juneuary we had this year, there was a massive 500-mile wide EF-3 tornado spinning in the Gulf of Alaska? Central pressure was ~939mb, winds could have been approaching 150 mph in places, who knows?

      Incredible!

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

      Right W7, fun to have a tornado pass over a weather station (and have it survive).

    Rod Hill’s long weekend/7 day forecast:

    • W7ENK says:

      No mention of thunderstorms for tomorrow.

      “… a three day stretch … with temperatures likely not reaching 60”? *Sigh*

      Juneuary starts next week, BTW. 😦

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

      Sure looks that way W7 (Juneuary).

  4. Beaverton Chris says:

    I was just about to ask whether the podcast was available in iTunes. I’m glad it is.

    So, is there any hope of getting out of this La Nina ugliness anytime in the near future – and by near future, I mean this year of course 😉

  7. PhilinForestGrove says:

    Anyone know how high tornado debris can go with an EF-5?

    Fox affiliate posted the following showing EF-2 debris up to 14,000ft.

  8. Josh (Gresham) says:

    Will we finally get some storms?
    Friday: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce small hail. High near 56. Southwest wind between 8 and 11 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

    Friday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could produce small hail. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 45. Southwest wind around 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

    • Austin(cornelius) says:

      I agree, we need a small t-storm forecast here on the blog. Please. 🙂

    • W7ENK says:

      Honestly, I highly doubt it.

    • Josh (Gresham) says:

      Same here Erik, but we can hope

    • W7ENK says:

      This is true!

      And I agree, too. We need some good boomers to roll through and spice things up a bit. What would be really nice is a good, strong, several hour long series of nocturnal thunderstorms! We haven’t had a good middle-of-the-night, shake-you-out-of-bed, can’t-sleep-’til-it’s-over kind of lightning storm in a long long LONG time!! :mrgreen:

    • Josh (Gresham) says:

      You never know, everybody else has gotten theirs, even NorCal. WHY NOT US! 😀
