Friday June 16
A chilly turn in the wx is on the way this weekend. Warmer in about a week. Details go best with a morn’n bev. Got it?
Cooler pattern about to arrive across the entire PNW. Clouds, and maybe a shower, hit NW WA & southern BC first later today; the rest of us will get the chills on Sunday. Saturday should turn out fair, but breezy from the W-NW. Sat night through Monday expect much cooler temps, some precipitation on/off across the region, and - as our great local forecasters have said - SNOW in the higher elevations of the Cascades.
It will begin to warm up a bit on Wed, with a sunny, dry pattern returning for a spell. Sunny & pleasant is now the outlook for the last weekend of June 2023. Thunderstorms along the Cascades are possible Fri through Sat, as an upper-level Low spins moisture northward. Eastern basins could also get a boomer or two. Not so windy. Again, temps in the mid 70s to lower 80s for Jun 24, 25. Enjoy.
That pesky COOL onshore breeze will turn back on again by Monday Jun 26 and hold on through the end of Jun. Hint: if timing is appropriate, growers should get treatments on before the winds return.
July is trending to start out dry & pleasant. High pressure over the eastern Pacific could be positioned just right to hold off any Pacific rain action and yet keep the region naturally 'air conditioned' as the month of July gets underway. Way early yet, but as of now, the 4th of July holiday is looking FINE. Cross your fingers and keep that Mug handy; maybe we’ll break the PNW tradition of a cool, showery 4th this year.
One last colorful image from our Alaska cruise. This was taken May 18th in Sitka - temperature was 74.
