Five More

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday May 3
That’s right, there is hope for the return of Spring.  Five more days before the ’turn’.  Dare we Mug up for that?  
Rather than tracking well to the west of the PNW coast - as expected several days ago - the Low pressure center of our weekend storm will make ‘landfall’ over southern OR/northern CA overnight Saturday.  The result: plenty of STEADY RAIN across much of OR, with WA state getting less of the precip.  Looks like over an inch of rain is possible for western OR, esp south of Portland starting later this afternoon and lasting through Saturday morning.  Showers will follow late Sat into Sunday, as will a drop in afternoon temperatures.  This system is NOT a big wind producer.  East side locations, and ID, will be wet, as well.  Good moisture for dry-land farming.
Cool, damp conditions will continue to move onshore from the NW into the early part of next week, then, models chart the much-awaited return to DRY & WARM wx for several days.  🌸🌼Wed May 8 will be the turning point, so expect plenty of sunshine and gradually warmer afternoons as next week comes to an end. 
☀️Weekend of May 11,12 is looking delightful!  Sunny.  Warming into the 70s for most locations.  
Dry wx will continue into the week of May 13 - 17, with a couple days of possible showers & thunderstorms over the eastern OR & ID basins Mon & Tue.  Regionally, temps are likely to cool down a bit, into the 60s.  The northern half of Vancouver Island may get showers returning late week, as a weak Low moves onshore over coastal BC.  Increasing chance for some cloudiness for north Puget Sound.  
The dry pattern should hold on through the May 18,19 weekend, with temperatures warming a few degrees, compared to Thu & Fri.
Overall:  roughly 5 more days of wet weather around the PNW, then - hopefully - an extended dry, mild wx period arrives.  We’re Mug ready!
