Monday August 2
It’s Monday already? Oops, the actual day of the week didn’t ‘register' in my retirement head ’til just now. Mug-sorry about that.
Warm-to-hot conditions will hold through Wed, then a cooler air mass will begin working its way down the Alaskan Panhandle & BC coast to bring us the first chance for rain across a broad area of the PNW later Thu & Fri. The system will not be a strong one, just enough to get forecasters to write about rainfall (0.10"-0.15”), at least from Chehalis north into southern BC. A shower or two could dampen the pavement around Portland/Salem before the whole spinning Low drifts east later on Fri. It will be cooler.
The cooler air mass will bring on a truly pleasant 1st full weekend for August 2021. Temps will bump up from Fri, but not into the heat level we have been experiencing of late. The somewhat cooler pattern will hold into the week of Aug 9-13, with increasing chance for precip from possible thunderstorms east of the Cascades, as a weak Low centers just west of the OR coast by Wed the 11th. As stated, a rather stable pattern will hold off another heat-up for the PNW. Expect pleasant, seasonal temps through the weekend of Aug 14,15. Coastal winds may let up quite a bit during this period - - - will the kites fly?
Warm-up expected during the week of Aug 16-20, esp east of the Cascades, with a shift in the pattern favoring an offshore flow component. We’ll see.
Again, pardon the tardiness.
