Everything is working out as planned this evening. A cold front moved through earlier this evening with very light rain. But that was it. A non-eventful front as expected.
Tonight was sure relaxing…in the weather center. The news people had the busiest night of the year. Wayne & Shauna were on the set (same room as me) from 4:00-11:30pm except for one hour from 7-8pm. But there were no weather segments after the 6pm show! It was a great evening to check out maps, return emails, schedule school visits, shop for cheap airfare for March (there isn’t any) etc… I love big election nights!
Anyway, not much to report for the next 5 days, mainly dry with Thursday’s system curling well to our south, then a few pop up showers under the chilly upper-level low Friday afternoon. Note how dry our RPM is for the next 3 days:
Temps will be quite a bit cooler now until further notice.
By the way, Mt. Hood Meadows was warmer than Portland today; 60 vs. 59. Don’t worry, I already put a note in for next Monday’s report card with a big X; the expected breakout from low clouds to sun just ahead of the front didn’t materialize from Salem north. I thought there would be more mixing.
Next week looks wetter, but not unusually cool.
