The rain is back this evening, although we’ve had less than 1/10th of an inch in the city. Much more has fallen since mid-afternoon out over the Cascades, including the western portion of the Eagle Creek Fire:
There is lots more rain to come, as I’ve been mentioning for the past week. Our RPM model is estimating 1-2″ by late Wednesday in the western valleys and 3-5″ over the Cascade crest and down into the western foothills.
Even the dry north-central part of Oregon will get enough to settle the dust. This may be our wettest week since March; for sure the wettest since May.
Enjoy all your indoor pursuits the next few days!
