Rain Totals Today…A Nice Soaking

Portland received .70″ of rain out of our little “storm”.  Looks like the metro area was all between 1/2″ and 1″.

Heavier totals of right around an inch in the valley and higher than that in some spots in the Cascades

By the way, this isn’t the start of the rainy season here…that’s typically around Halloween.  But the chance of getting rain on any one day now is significantly higher than it was in mid-summer.

In an average year, November and December are the wettest months with the rain totals trailing off from mid-winter through spring.

    Almost 2 inches of rain in Astoria since midnight. What a difference a few miles makes. Salem is mostly sunny at 11:30 AM and 67 degrees with a breezy South wind. Should get close to 75 today and 75-80 over the weekend. A little rain Monday or Tuesday then warmer and dryer for the better part of a week. So Autumn is starting where Summer left off, warm and dry. NWS is talking about crisp nights the middle of next week with widespread lows in the 30,s and some patchy frost in outlying areas. We shall see, but it has to come sometime, oh well. Peace.

      Too bad we couldn’t get October warmth to come on the heels of a cool summer! To add to the “summer coming in fall” effect…

    I just wanted to share last night’s sunset with you all, in case you missed it. The brilliant firey orange only lasted about 2-1/2 minutes. I was driving home from the grocery store and had to pull over, it was that spectacular…

    Enjoy! 🙂

    Thanks Erik for the heads up yesterday about the possible drop before midnight. (I always get thrown off when I look at the overnight lows by that possibility) It looks like we “eeked” out a 60 before the midnight reading at the PDX airport…So, another low above 60 for the season.

    I believe that %-wise Oct. represents the biggest % change in both precip increase and temp drop. Like Mark mentioned that the rainy season really is still about a month away Oct is overall the month of biggest % changes.

  8. dharmabum says:

    Lot’s of rain here yesterday, I’m ready to burn my brush piles as soon as Clackamas Co. opens the burn season. I believe that is Oct. 1.

    Now that we’ve had our little September soaking, let’s move on to some nice fall weather with chilly nights and sunny warm days 🙂

  11. Currently at 1.26″ here and raining again. Only a high of 62° at my place today.

  12. Shane in Vancouver says:

    I think Vancouver lifted the burn ban that was in effect because of the rain. Hopefully all of the fires can finally be put out. Im happy to finally not be stuck in all the hot air. The rain is refreshing!

  13. Paul D says:

    That 0.80 in Hillsboro must have mostly been while I was asleep last night because we’ve had almost nothing today.

  14. JERAT416 says:

    The rain was refreshing! Does anyone know if it has helped put any fires out?
