It was a very warm January morning/midday for most areas on the eastern side of the Willamette Valley and up into the Cascade Foothills:
Low 60s were widespread. And check out the record highs east of the Cascades.
Downtown Pendleton’s high of 70 was only one degree shy of the all-time January record.
AND, the 00z GFS is back to the usual programming, some sort of split flow or ridging through the 10-15 day period. Hope you saved some nice screenshots of the 18z!
