I love it when (once in a great while) my forecast goes wrong like this! A weak system off the southern Oregon coast is moving more slowly than anticipated which means 3 things at the noon hour:
- Showers have only made it into SW Oregon so far. Radar is pretty much dry all across NW Oregon and SW Washington
- Most of the afternoon should be dry for most of us. A few sprinkles show up around dinnertime or sunset, but it’s quite possible it won’t rain until after sunset.
- Temperatures are warmer than expected…around 70 degrees already with a light offshore wind (easterly).
Here’s the latest radar loop.
Now get outside and enjoy the nice day!
