Friday May 17
The models have made minor adjustments in the long-range outlook.  We’ll do the same.  Ready?
A cool air mass moving into the NW corner of the PNW will usher in cloudiness and a few showers going through the weekend, primarily north of Chehalis to start, then a secondary ’shot’ pushes farther south over NW OR on Sunday.  Generally speaking, this will be more of a cloud event, with nominal precip.  Cooler, for sure.
The rain/showers we expected to arrive on Mon the 20th will be delayed until Tue.  This front should be a bit stronger than the weekend’s, so expect a wider area of showers, with temps dropping a few degrees cooler, esp on Wed May 22.
The good news is that we may escape any notable precip during the coming U.S. holiday weekend.  Following a mild, partly cloudy Thu & Fri, models indicate dry and slightly warmer wx for the first 3 days weekend in quite some time.  (We will post an update on Memorial Day.)
The rain that was expected during the holiday weekend is now booked to arrive on Tue May 28 and last for several hours.  In fact, it could be on/off wet over most of the PNW from the 28th through mid-day Thu May 30.  Fri the 31st looks partly cloudy, but dry.
Early June is just coming into “view” on the charts that we follow showing indications that the upper-level wind pattern suggests mild temps with the chance for rain early.  Not unusual for June.
