Whew…way too close this evening. But over the last two hours just about all readings in the metro area have held steady or even risen a degree or two. Good news, the evaporational cooling from rain falling into dry air has ended.
So unless we get some sudden clearing towards daybreak after the precip ends we should be all clear for the AM commute.
Models are pretty insistent on keeping the atmosphere saturated the next 12 hours so that’s why I’m pretty confident that we’ll avoid clearing sky.
Lots of thick ice in the West Hills, Mt. Scott, and East Portland/Gresham/Troutdale areas. Again, luckily not on the roads.
On to rainy and windy weather at times over the next 8-10 days…should be more weather fun ahead!
