9:20pm: A Few Storms Popping Up in Valley/Metro Area

It’s been real quiet here in the valleys so far, but in just the last 20 minutes 2-3 thunderstorms have popped up in the West Linn/Oregon City, Molalla, & Scotts Mills area.  First lightning strike of the day in the metro area is around Rosemont Ridge area of West Linn.

    Your current weather map runs up past the Canadian boarder. Could you at least show the whole State of Oregon.

    Just a thought!

    Of course as soon as I post that I see a flash to the South.

    Realized I didn’t update my location tag.

  3. Ryan (Walnut Grove) says:

    Thought I heard a rumble here in Vancouver but alas nothing. I was hoping with those two cells that popped up maybe something would pop this way.

    I guess it is time to hit the rack.

    Can see lightning from both the storm to my South and to my West, but I can only hear thunder from the one to my West, which has been a constant and steady deep rumble for the last 20-25 minutes now.

      Nocturnals the last several years seem to crest over OC and then follow the Willamette and take a west heading over the west hills/Tigard, Beaverton, etc.

    Is it going to hit Vancouver wash, if so do you think it’s going to be a big hit?
