A Cool Start

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday June 23
Greetings, Patron.  Thanks for stopping by this summer day.  Good weather ahead; good beverage in hand.
Not much change from our last report - as plenty of sunshine and a trend towards cooler temperatures are still on the charts.  For the next 7 days, we can expect onshore breezes to hold summer temps down in the 70s to low 80s, depending on your locations (cooler zones around the Puget Sound).  No broad precipitation is expected, other than under a wandering thunderstorm this afternoon along the Cascades and even over the NW corner of OR (Portland included) today the 23rd.  The breezes should let up a bit Sat & Sunday, but increase again as next week progresses, making it difficult for crop protection treatments.  
July begins next weekend.  Wx outlook remains steady, with the onshore breeze continuing to hold temps down.  Current outlook also keeps the 4th of July dry, but on the cool side, given the pesky winds.  At least the wind will help quickly ‘clear the air’ if you are near firework action.  Morning marine clouds are possible each day after the 4th, continuing on into the July 8,9 weekend.  BREEZY!  Temps will be rather cool for summer, so don’t expect to be comfortable swimming anywhere west side in the PNW during early July.  
In fact, we expect the first 10 days of July 2023 to run BELOW average in the temperature dept.  That goes for much of California, as well.  There are indications that it may begin to heat up after July 9; too early to peg that transition just yet.
