We hit 81 in Portland today
The first of the season. Almost all of us in the metro area hit 80. Quite a warmup over the past week!
This year we hit 80 a bit earlier than average…which has been around May 10th
Remember 2010 & 2011? Some were worried endless slugs, rotted veggies, and April-June downpours were the new normal. Apparently not. As of today, we’ve seen 5 days at/above 70 degrees, the most real warm days in April since 2009.
By the way, we could see the start of the Government Camp condo fire this afternoon from the Mt. Hood Adventure Park camera at Skibowl East. Note the left side of the timelapse:
