Peak Gusts So Far…

Portland Airport recorded a southwest gust to 45 mph at 3:19pm. That’s the strongest wind gust since mid March, and matches the 45 mph gust two years ago in May.

By the way, the strongest May gust ever at PDX is only 48 mph.

    Quite an active day for May 3rd! .67″ of rain since midnight at my house, with a peak gust of SW29. Got home from work to find lots of small fir limbs scattered around my yard. A bit unexpected, but then again I wasn’t paying close attention to this particular storm system, I was looking further ahead to next week’s warmth & sunshine.

    The 18z GFS is fantastic.. I hope it is correct. Best run of May weather since 2009.

      I’m kinda hopin that the entire rest of spring through fall is a 2009 redux. Looks good so far, and even a few warmer April days than 2009.

      That would be fine by, just so long as I’m down at the coast again when the 106 degree weather hits… that was AWESOME! 🙂
