Thunderstorms Popping Up This Evening

March 21, 2017

6pm Tuesday…

Marja Portland Earth Design Day

As expected, showers and thunderstorms are popping up west of the Cascades early this evening.  That’s due to a weather disturbance moving overhead.  Anyone could see a thunderstorm west of the Cascades then next 2-3 hours.  So far most of the action has been on the west side of the Willamette Valley.

Spring is here and that includes days like this with showers and sunbreaks…sometimes only a few minutes apart!

At least it was warmer today, with the south side of the metro area making it into the 60s while the cool east wind kept Troutdale 10 degrees cooler.
