Just got into work and saw these temps…wow!
The east wind is doing the trick. Most of the metro area is in the lower 80s, but the strong wind areas from PDX to Troutdale are a few notches cooler. A bit less wind tomorrow and warmer atmosphere means well into the 80s. We should set 3 records for today, Monday, & Tuesday as high pressure and offshore flow holds through most of Tuesday
Here’s the view at 4pm from our Chinook Winds camera…you don’t see that temperature out there very often!
More later this evening when I get a chance to delve into maps/models a bit more
