Friday August 26
A pleasant weekend ahead, even a few showers possible north of Chehalis. We do have more heat coming, so Mug up & read on.
Yes, this weekend will be cooler and more enjoyable outside than the past few hot days. A weak system from the NW will cross western WA, ushering in an onshore flow, clouds and drizzle/showers in a few places. Main impact will be much cooler temperatures - could be a drop of nearly 20 degrees compared to yesterday the 25th. Sunday will be less cloudy & warmer.
Next week is trending warmer and dry. In fact, models hint at yet another HEAT-UP with regional temps topping back into the 80s and 90s west side on Tue & Wed to end the month of August. We will not rule out a triple-digit reading on Wed, Aug 31, esp in the usual hot spots.
Another surge of onshore flow should begin Thu to start the month of September off with a cool period. The last holiday weekend of the Summer of ‘22 will be on the cool side, although Sat & maybe Sunday in OR could be warm (models have been back-n-forth for a damp Friday/Saturday). A change in the overall pattern is charting to set up Monday Sep 5 - Labor Day - meaning fall-like weather is likely starting late Sunday over Vancouver Is and NW WA, moving south by Labor Day. Clouds and RAIN are probable to end the holiday weekend. Be prepared if camping.
The short work and ‘back-to-school’ week is trending cool & wet, at times, with Low pressure systems moving into the PNW from the Gulf of Alaska. Folks will be calling it an early Fall arrival, weather-wise. We’ll see.
The weekend of Sept 10,11 is charting as damp early, warming by Sunday with a break in the ‘fall-like’ pattern to yield sunny, pleasant afternoons going into the Sep 12-16 week. Early yet, as a few model runs keep the region on the wet fall-side.
Topical Tropical: a system may develop in the Gulf of Mexico and begin to threaten landfall between Pensacola and the Texas and Louisiana after Labor Day weekend. An Atlantic system may just wander over the ocean. A ‘fish storm’. Both September storms, if they verify. An interesting fact - thus far in August, no Atlantic tropical storms have developed and been given a name. It has been 30 years since this has happened.
Personal Note: the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s is coming September 24. Your host will again participate on your behalf in Corvallis this year.
