Thunderstorm Rain Totals: Big Soaking Out East

Those thunderstorms eastside sure dumped a pile of rain in Clackamas and eastern Multnomah County. The Eagle Creek RAWS site (on the highway between Eagle Creek and Sandy) reported almost 1.00″ of rain. Other spots saw around 1/2″.

    Bottom line it can rain all it wants during the week but as long Saturdays and Sundays stay dry in April and May we are living right let’s hope the upcoming 3 day holidays continues this trend! Then it can snow in October.

    Currently very gusty winds and torrential rains here in NP…

  3. *BoringOregon* says:

    We just had heavy pea size hail shower. I thank I saw some lightning?

    I have a quick question:

    I don’t mean to sound like a complainer but I am always either attracting negative people or people in negative moods why is that?

    I feel like I have a magnet that says I have to attract people who are feeling negative and I have to work REALLY hard on not getting dragged down in whatever drama they are going thru or I’ll go into a negative spiral.

    Very heavy downpour in Downtown Portland for about 10 minutes followed by sunny blue sky. Now, the sky to the South is very dark and I almost thought I heard a rumble of thunder through the window…?

    • Kassie97222 says:

      I just read that on the facebook page… you probably did hear some thunder… I posted pictures on facebook. It was really dark here, then the sun came back out… the only action out here was 20 second shower about an hour ago…

    • atmosphericwrath says:

      The only lightning strikes in the area thus far have been out near Sandy. You definitely didn’t hear any Thunder from Downtown Portland it is simply too far away.

    • W7ENK says:

      Yep @Kassie, that was me.

      It could’a been another error… who knows?

    • You can still get thunder from cloud to cloud lightning which might not have been visible because of the daylight…..

    • atmosphericwrath says:

      In downtown Portland you would have been some 35+ miles from where any lightning occurred. It is not conceivable to hear thunder from that distance.

    • josieinyamhill says:

      Musta been an error.. duh!

    • W7ENK says:

      It is not conceivable to hear thunder from that distance.

      And thus, it is written.

    • k9onyx says:

      I routinely heard thunder from further away than that when I lived in Florida. I’d say it’s highly likely.

    • Maybe she had one of those listening devices in her ear, you know those ones you see on TV? On their website they said it saved someone’s marriage so anything is possible. http://www.tvears.com and you too can hear thunder from 35 miles away. 🙂

    • Mark Nelsen says:

      How about we all grow up and stop arguing about who did or did not hear thunder, or who did or did not see a “bolt from the blue”???

    • Timmy_Supercell (Klamath Falls @ 4200') says:

      Okay, now that someone here has heard thunder in a 40-50 mile distance in Florida; it is now official that you can hear thunder within 35+ miles.

      Case closed. And stop arguing. Mark, give them all timeouts!!! ^_^

    • Timmy_Supercell (Klamath Falls @ 4200') says:

      Mike; you do make a good point. Fox 12 lightning tracker does not show CC (cloud to cloud) strikes… so Erik must have had a CC strike…

  6. Kassie97222 says:

    Just posted some neat cloud photos on the (stupid facebook) page (under Kassandra) Don’t know how to post them to this blog yet…

  7. paulbeugene says:

    One hit wonder thunder…had lightning strike within a 1/2 mile.

  8. Timmy_Supercell (Klamath Falls @ 4200') says:

    Had snow about 20 minutes ago… nothing stuck, since it was 43F or 44F at the time. 45F at KLMT right now, partly sunny.

    • Mr Data says:

      Sounds more like grapuel which is that soft stuff that bounces but looks almost like snow and occurs in those kinds of temps and air mass.

    • W7ENK says:

      No, down in K Falls it probably was snow. I’ve seen it snow legit snow at 48F down there before.

      Quite literally, August is the only month it doesn’t snow down there…

    • Timmy_Supercell (Klamath Falls @ 4200') says:

      Mr. Data = they were flakes ^_^

      But it just didn’t stick. I did although have graupel/styrofoam later… about an hour later

    • bgb41 says:

      Did the graupel cause you to cancel the water skiing trip today?

  9. muxpux (Longview) says:

    hailing here now, woohoo

  10. Garron near Washington Square says:

    It was quite humid yesterday, I was not surprised that thunder cells blew up yesterday as that flow looked to be almost straight S-N during that period. It was actually quite a nice day yesterday if you were in the valley locations. Rain on the coast and in the mtns, and warm with occasional sunshine in between.

  11. Timmy_Supercell (Klamath Falls @ 4200') says:

    Had some decent rainfall for a little while.. totalled about 0.13″ since 10pm.

    Supposed to be more rain today, which I like ^_^

  12. Mr Data says:

    Steady rain here since between 9-10PM and about 0.75 inches of rain as the cold front is making it’s way inland.

    Does anyone know what air flow patterns Silverton does best for T-storm developments?

    • Timmy_Supercell (Klamath Falls @ 4200') says:

      I would assume a strong South or SSE flow… they get quite a few of them under that flow.
