Sunday Morning: Record Breaking Day Ahead


Today is going to be a very summer like day across the Pacific Northwest:

– Sunny all day

– The morning sounding (weather balloon) shows +14.6 degrees over Salem at around 5,000′.  Even a bit warmer than expected

– East wind is blowing through the Columbia River Gorge, gusting 25-40 mph at Vista House.

– We’re starting warmer than yesterday and with no cloud cover.

I think this spells a high today somewhere between 82-85 degrees in Portland.  The record for today is 79 set back in 1982.

Enjoy the summer temps for a couple of days, a tremendous marine push arrives Monday night, and Tuesday’s high temps under cloudy skies will be 15-20 degrees colder!  Probably only 60 or so.

  3. Tender young maple leaves against a clear blue sky was so beautiful to wake up to this morning. It’s evening and too much sun all at once is not a good thing. My yard looks nice though.
