A New View

August 22, 2011

I got this from Cliff Mass’s blog this morning (via Pappoose in Scappoose in the comments on the previous post).  Check out the difference the new radar (not operational yet) makes up on the Washingotn Coast.  There is a very juicy front offshore.  Here’s Portland’s radar view, partially blocked as always by the Coast Range: Notice the line of rain way out there appears quite weak.  Then check out the view from the new radar about two hours ago!  Wow…looks much more impressive doesn’t it?  Can’t wait for it to be operational during the upcoming winter.
