Independence Day looks very nice across the Pacific Northwest, just some morning clouds along the Columbia River and the coastline. All areas will be cooler too.
Here in Portland we should top out right around average for this time of year…78 degrees.
By the way, we haven’t seen measurable rainfall here in Portland on the 4th since 2000! That makes 13 consecutive dry holidays.
Curiously, the chance for measurable rainfall is highest on July 4th when compared to all other July days. Strange eh? It’s not strange that the average drops off dramatically later in the month of course…the last week of July and early August are our driest time of the year…on average.
I’ll be off on Thursday but back here on Friday.
