    Great commercial Mark!! Awesome!

  2. Joshua in Lake Oswego says:

    According to the 12Z GFS, it will be raining basically every hour from this Saturday until the following Saturday. I know that it does precipitation in 3 hour windows, but you get the point- wet!!!

      Isn’t it wonderful rain from here on out till next July 5th we will pay for that extra month of summer in a big way! Rain gear and rake and muddy leafs for the weekend sounds great! New York will be getting a lot more rain than we will shortly though.

  3. JohnD says:

    What are the chances of a “mostly dry” period before noon this coming Saturday–before the rain sets up in earnest? Really would like to know.
    Also great–much appreciated comments by Paul and others. Always look forward to them this time of the year.

    • Tyler Mode in Battle Ground says:

      Actually that’s about when the rain looks to move in. There is spotty showers tomorrow etc, but nothing steady until late Saturday morning.

    GFS 12Z now on board with Sandy striking US Atlantic Seaboard…looks like a hit from the SE toward Long Island…Rhode Island vs. ECMWF idea of Delmarva. With full moon, high astronomical tides, with storm surge/tide on top of that…this could be a multibillion dollar storm…may not be as strong as Hazel but effects from winds, waves, etc will be far reaching.

    Sorry Mark, I know it’s near blaspheme for me to say this… But this is pretty cool… http://www.katu.com/news/local/KATU-set-to-launch-a-nerdtacular-weather-radar-system—VIPIR-175733791.html

    • Ron says:

      I wonder if other stations like KPTV can contract out with KATU and use the radar. Is that possible, Mark?

    • Mark Nelsen says:

      We already use the same data.

      KOIN and KPTV (and maybe KGW) already have the ability to do a 3D volumetric look at storms, and it appears to be using the same Nexrad Level2 data from the NWS that we all use. I don’t use it (3D) much because it often looks very messy in our “blobs of green and yellow” climate. Baron VIPIR is a good software system known for their severe weather product (radar), but it’s not real useful most of the time here. I do like the idea of adding chance of rain to the forecast.

      This is Oregon, not Oklahoma. I love how they mention severe weather and how well this new radar will help warn us 5 minutes in advance from the traditional radar. What’s next, advertisements for storm shelters? Must be ratings time eh Mark? Perhaps I just hate the fake value they are trying to add to their station…..

      LOL very unsual to see a large classic Supercell with a well defined Hook Echo in the Portland Metro. Not gonna happen in the next 50 years ^_^

    Wow! Top of the hill in Milwaukie is crystal clear with starry skies, half way down (Hwy 224) visibility is <1/4 mile, bottom of the hill near the river (Hwy 99E) is under the fog.

    Cascade locks to hood river…

    Cool hail…..hopefully in about seven weeks that will be snow instead….
    Looks like we will be rather damp for the next two weeks…GFS ensemble mean precip over the Willamette Valley for next two weeks approximately 5-6″ liquid. Don’t see any actual strong lows on the models in the next two weeks, off our coast…westerlies getting a bit more organized across the Pacific but jet for most part under 130knts…tapping into moisture from west tropical Pacific end of Oct into first week of Nov.
    Not looking like ski areas will hold onto the snow.

    Still waiting to see what models do with Sandy….ECMWF 00Z run tonight has 958mb low near Baltimore at 120h. Last year…it was the freak snowstorm before Halloween…this year…strong winds…high tides/coastal flooding…snow in the higher elevs of Appalachians…….could happen. There is still disagreement among the models.

    Looks like mt hood will get a good little snow hose for a few hours.

  11. looks like fun down south. i hit that cell around 6:30 in troutdale or so this evening. in the worktruck. with a trailer. with a full load. worst. drive. ever. got some good timelapse of driving through the gorge and into that cell, but my coworker is a wuss, and the heat made my phone overheat and shut-off.

  12. TygrrLilley says:

    Oooh, I hope this hits East Vancouver!! =D

  13. *BoringOregon* says:

    Heck yea, nice pic looks like about a inch of hail !!

  14. AlohaWeather says:

    Can’t wait to see this 🙂

    Looking at radar, it won’t be long till I do 😀

  15. Those cells are intensifying still and moving into the west metro, should be our strongest of the day if they hold together
