What a soaker for the central part of the metro area this evening! Here’s the radar image from 6:20pm as thunderstorms were dumping huge amounts of water on inner NE and SE Portland.
Officially at PDX it’s the wettest day since April 7th and we also broke a record for the day
Of course this time of year the record daily rainfall isn’t that hard to break…the old record was only 0.23″. But wait, apparently even heavier rain fell between the official gauges. There were several stations in inner east Portland that showed more than 1″ of rain; that would include the early morning rain too.
Tomorrow’s showers should be much more tame with most action over the Coast and Coast Range.
