Wet Wet Wet!

December 5, 2015

10am Saturday…

I’m under the weather this weekend as they say…in fact I took the 2nd half of yesterday off since I was all hoarse and felt like, well, you know.  But a beautiful 11 hours of sleep.

Screaming message is that we have a LOT of rain the next 8-10 days.  We could end up with our typical December total by next Sunday, the 13th.  Hopefully we’ll avoid flooding since after Wednesday they will be cold storms.  But it’s going to feel like old-fashioned December weather!

Take a look at both meteograms from the ECMWF and GFS.  The ECMWF has consistently been forecasting higher totals for the next 10 days.  I chose Salem to get away from the higher totals sometimes forecast for PDX since it’s much closer to that wet bullseye over the S. Washington Cascades.  Click for a better view

You get the idea…consistently wet for the next 10 days.
