Vacation Time

I’m on vacation through Tuesday the 19th, so likely no blog postings.  Feel free to continue discussing weather (if there is any) in the comments below.

9:10pm: More Lightning

June 8, 2012

Apparently we’re not quite done with lightning yet.  We just had two strikes in East Portland:  One near 150th/Division and another near 158th & Burnside.

Line of Storms Moving Through East Metro

June 8, 2012

They are moving quickly…maybe 40 mph, but a line of heavy showers has suddenly produced a bunch of lightning strikes…6 in the past 15 minutes from northern Oregon City up through Milwaukie/Clackamas/Happy Valley areas.  They’ll be out of the metro in less than 1/2 hour.

The chance for hail and thunder continues through 6-8pm.
