12:30pm: Forecast Bust In Progress

September 16, 2015

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:

  1. Showers have only made it into SW Oregon so far.  Radar is pretty much dry all across NW Oregon and SW Washington
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
