A cluster of strong storms is moving through S. Vancouver and N. Portland right now…storms that again came off the S. Washington Cascades. Lots of cloud to cloud lightning but not too much cloud to ground action…yet. I can heard almost constant rumbling to my west (I’m home SE of Crown Point).
Vancouver has received 3/4 inch of rain and PDX already 1/2 inch…expect local flooding to spread south into the heart of Portland. These storms will continue moving very slowly south, then die after sunset.
Follow the latest radar image and loop, go here:
Then click INTERACTIVE MAP for all the warnings/watches, and looping of the radar…it’s quite a fun tool to track storms with. In fact it highlights the warnings with colored areas too. Note you can turn on lightning as well.
