Vacation Time

July 25, 2012

Probably no new posts until Saturday, the 4th of August.  I’m on vacation this week and most of next week.  Plus, well, there’s nothing happening. 

I don’t see a thunderstorm pattern over the next week so it’s all about the strength of onshore flow and morning cloud cover extent.  Not a professionally inspiring period so a good time to be gone anyway.

It appears we go from warmer than average weather for a couple of days to another round of troughiness and cooler weather Friday through sometime next week.  We won’t hit 90 in July for the 2nd consecutive year.  That’s really weird.  In fact it’s never happened in Portland’s history (since 1940 at least).
