The rainfall last night and then downpours this afternoon pushed our monthly rain total to 3.76″ here in Portland; that’s now the 3rd wettest. Remember the REALLY wet month? That was just two years ago!
Interesting to note that this doesn’t seem to mean too much for the rest of summer when we look back at past wet June weather.
The forecast for the next week doesn’t look so bad, except for Friday and Saturday. A system coming through Saturday may give us actual widespread rain, I’m keeping an eye on that. But tomorrow and the first 2-3 days of next week look perfectly reasonable for this time of year.
