Vacation Time

4pm Friday…

The kids are out of school, it’s June, and I’m off on vacation through Saturday the 16th.  No posts during that time.  Hopefully no hurricane, tornado, or blizzard…

    At my station in Battle Ground:

    Today’s high of 90 is my first high 90+ for the year. The average first 90 is on June 23rd, so just 6 days ahead of average. The earliest? April 18th, 2016. The latest? August 20th in 2011!

    Nice thunderstorms in my area 🤗🤗🤗🤗

  5. Ken in Wood Village says:

    I’m downtown for the festival but I see a huge storm on the radar coming to my home 🤗🤗🤗🤗

  6. Lee Wilson says:

    This is an interesting development .

  7. Lee Wilson says:

    Wow, were pulling in the power big time.
    Air conditioner going, 2 fans, and bread machine, constant 768 watts of power steady.

    To the east of us heading south, thunderstorms .just over the cascade hills…they just now popping up.

  8. Paul D says:

    Heat wave approaching – brace for impact!

  9. W7ENK says:

    Uhmmmm, hey guys? Look toward the NE Portland. I don’t care if it’s on radar, satellite, or visual, but…

    On, and it’s moving straight toward Portland.

    Hold onto your butts!!

      I’m at Crown Point right now. It’s raining but no lightning or thunder. But I think maybe later it will. I see some bigger storms on the radar towards our East/NE. 🤗🤗

    • Paul D says:

      Rained in Beaverton around 6pm yesterday! Who’s putting out those forecasts? They blew it!

  10. Ken in Wood Village says:

    Start watching the radar 🤗

  11. Paul D says:

    Somebody sprayed water on the road in my neighborhood this morning!

    • Roland Derksen says:

      I had a surprise shower in my area early today as well, but by the time I got up this morning(before 7am) skies cleared right off. It’s getting warm out there now.

  12. Roland Derksen says:

    Still rather cloudy here this morning. Mean temperature this month is about 2.5F below average for me, but I expect that will change over the next several days.

  13. W7ENK says:

    Looks like the chance for some hot weather is increasing. But,
    looks like the chance for thunderstorms is decreasing, though they’re not entirely off the table… yet.

    SPC Outlook — Day 3

  14. Roland Derksen says:

    I know hot weather is just around the corner (We’ll see temperatures well into the 80’s even here) but this morning has been the dreariest I’ve seen since mid-April; Low overcast, showers and a current temperature of 52.7F. Got to get better than this, please.

  15. W7ENK says:

    One last try.

    No idea why I’ve been having so much trouble with this…

  16. Ken in Wood Village says:

    I see the warmer weather next week but I’m not sure if some of you see the other part of the weather? It looks like we could have a few days of T-storms too. I know it’s a little over a week away but the GFS and EURO show the same thing. We’ll see if they keep showing it the next few days.

  17. Joshua Downtown PDX says:

    Historic June heatwave coming up? 7 days of 90 plus? A couple of 100 plus. The GFS is giving us 107 next Wednesday. This is getting silly. That’s how I know it will actually happen. The warm records are dropping like flies the last few years. Lucky us.

  18. W7ENK says:

    Welp, looks like my old thunderstorm forecasting method held true, yet again! I leave town, Portland gets slammed. While y’all had no less than 4 rounds of strong thunderstorms roll through (two of which were severe warned,) with hail and even another Clark Couty tornado, I was enjoying a mostly sunny day with a only few brief showers mixed in down at the Coast.

    Watching sunset over the water from our hotel was a real treat!

  19. Roland Derksen says:

    Well, it seems that all the excitement this past weekend was south of the border(i.e hail, thundershowers). Here I had a lot of sun(mixed with some clouds) breezy and coolish temperatures. Hot next weekend? Looks like a repeat of last June.

  20. Tyler Mode in Battle Ground says:

    55 degrees for a high in Battle Ground. Ties for my coldest June high in the last 8 years of record here. The other 55 was on June 8th in 2012.

  21. alohabb says:

    Am I seeing this correct….starting Fathers Day in the 90’s and several days after as well???

  22. Joshua Downtown PDX says:

    Since nobody else is talking about it… 100 degrees coming up? Starting next weekend, we are going to be getting many days of ridiculous heat in a row. Maybe a week at 90 plus? We’ll see. Moses have mercy.

  23. lurkyloo says:

    Another REALLY heavy downpour with hail mixed in.

  24. Max in Fairview says:

    Rumble of thunder just now.

  25. lurkyloo says:

    Lots of hail and heavy downpours this morning around 10:30. Had a big hailstorm (pea sized at the least — maybe even bean sized) with thunder about 10 minutes ago. Still raining hard here near Rose City Golf Course. The parade folks got lucky!

  26. Ken in Wood Village says:

    It looks like so storms are firing up now.

  27. Roland Derksen says:

    Nothing exciting here- yet. I see some towering Cu in the distance, but otherwise it’s been nice here. Yesterday’s rainfall (0.54 inches, plus a few early showers of 0.03 inches) was needed: yesterday morning when precipitation began, I poked my fingers into some soil near a lawn: almost dry as dust once you got below the very top surface.

  28. Ken in Wood Village says:

    I’ve been having hail on and off for the past 20 minutes 😒

  29. Paul D says:

    RAIN!!! Woot!!

  30. Lee Wilson says:

    Where is summer?
    Our tomatoes are not doing so well this year, I fear it will be another “Green Tomato” summer this year…if we ever get something resembling a summer.

    To me summer isn’t when you have to RUN a heater in the daytime and nighttime to stay warm.

  31. Ken in Wood Village says:

    Lol, we’ll have a blizzard when your gone…hehe. First 🤗😂🤗😂🤗😂
