Thunderstorms Thursday Evening

May 21, 2015

7pm Thursday…

Some action popped up the past hour or so on the far westside of the metro area.  Take a look…easily a couple hundred lightning strikes in extreme western Washington County the past hour or so.


Very heavy rain has fallen just west of Banks and just west of Gaston.


The outflow boundaries (cool air surging out the bottom of the storms) may fire up new storms much closer in to the city over the next hour or two.  Just 11 miles east at KPTV in Beaverton we still have a light east/southeast wind.

Keep a close eye on the radar!  Here’s the latest image:
