The south wind finally punched through to ALL of the metro area the past few hours and it feels like we stepped off the plane on a tropical island…or something along those lines. Look at the 1pm temps…60 in Portland, breaking the record of 58 for the last day of November.
61 in Troutdale; you folks haven’t been above 48 in about a week! Very nice warm southerly wind.
Enjoy it since we’ll go back to normal this evening as rain moves in.
Still tracking the possible strong wind for Sunday morning for someone, but need to look at more maps; I’ll blog about that this evening.
