We found sunshine over Portland! Unfortunately you have to travel up to around 1500′ to find it. This is the 2pm view from our tower cam at 1,800′. I was happy to see the sun up there at least. We’re timelapsing it right now and I’ll try to post the movie later. It’s always fun to see the movement in the low cloud layer; like watching someone stir a thick soup?
Temperatures in some Cascade locations have reached into the 60s today! Meanwhile, stuck below the inversion in the fog and low clouds we are having real trouble reaching towards 40.
There are hints we might see some clearing in spots the next 24 hours…the WRF-GFS pushes east wind out of the Gorge and into the east part of the metro area tomorrow. Interesting, I’ll blog again later.
