Midweek Scorcher Delivers

6pm Wednesday…

Whew!  What a scorcher.  98 at this hour in Portland ,which is also the high temp for the day so far.  Tomorrow will be so much nicer since we get a major marine push.  A good 15 degree drop.

I’m at a weather conference in California for a couple more days.  Try to stay cool tonight!

  2. Thick marine layer and lots of drizzle up this way.

      Haven’t seen as much cloud here, so no drizzle. However, it’s been fairly breezy, so temperatures are noticeably cooler.

    Let the cooldown begin! Ahhhhhh…..

    Has anybody seen these electric blue clouds lately? They have been restricted to the far north but each year especially this year has drifted FAR south like southern California type south.http://spaceweather.com/

    Here’s an excerpt.

    RECORD-SETTING NOCTILUCENT CLOUDS: If you’ve never seen a cloud of frosted meteor smoke, now is the time to look. 2019 is shaping up to be the best year for noctilucent clouds (NLCs) … maybe ever. Normally confined to near-Arctic latitudes, NLCs have been seen this month in most US states. On Friday morning, June 14th, Don Davis saw them, astonishingly, from the city of Joshua Tree not far from Los Angeles CA:

    This marine air push is a welcome here. I don’t care for Summer time heat no matter what month it is. Very breezy here in downtown.

    • Roland Derksen says:

      Very nice here as well, this morning. I like these marine pushes at times. Without them, our PNW weather would be like locations east of the Rockies in the summer.

    • PAUL D says:

      The breeze Thursday evening was absolutely delightful! Today has been real nice too!

  6. Roland Derksen says:

    It got up to 90F here yesterday- that’s a new record for the date. Saw some interesting clouds in the afternoon, but by sunset most of them were gone. Today should see a slight drop in the maximum, but we’ll have to wait until tomorrow here to see a significantly cooler temperature.

    • 86˚F here for a maximum on Wednesday. Though I was camping in a valley with limited exposure to marine influence at the time, and it was probably 10 degrees warmer there.

      PS – Looks as if I may be moving closer to your neck of the woods (i.e. Bellingham) sometime soon.

      • Roland Derksen says:

        Bellingham tends to be windier, so I wonder if you’ll see temperatures as high.

    80 is going to feel good after the last two days. It’s been way too hot!

  8. JohnD says:

    ‘Have to say that I am glad this ‘wave is short lived!
    ‘Never really pull for the heat (as if it makes a difference) except when we are in a super rare combo of “all time” record potential”!
    We’ll see if that transpire this season!
    Otherwise, way more pull for the winter big event equivalents!
    Cheers All!

    East side is getting absolutely clobbered right now!

    Not sure what’s up with the date and time, I’m pretty sure it’s not New Year’s Eve 1969. Although, if the storm is bad enough, you never know…

    It was 100 on my back deck, in the shade, at 6pm. If my phone would cooperate,  will send a picture!

      I believe you as I’m seeing very close to that when I got home around 5 pm.
      You know it seems to me in years past that hot days used to cool down very fast at night in Oregon. Faster than they do now anyway.
