Monday August 9
Well, another toaster week ahead, with temps likely running into triple digit range again, esp for portions of western OR & SW WA. Iced Mug beverage time.
Hottest part of this week looks to be Wed-Sat, with Thu/Fri being the ‘oven' days. It may be rather MUGGY by Thu/Fri, as well. Agh. Temps should cool down a few degrees by this coming Sunday, Aug 15. An onshore flow will pick-up next Monday, cooling the region back down to reasonable. Still dry.
Week of Aug 16-20 is charting to be cooler, with a weak trough of cool air moving down the BC coast, then over the PNW early that week. The Puget Sound will be the coolest area, but OR will get relief from the heat early in the week. Breezy. Temps should bump up a few degrees by week’s end. In fact, the weekend of Aug 21,22 may end up on the hot side, esp for OR & eastern WA. The overall wind pattern may set up the last full week of August to be pleasant and, yes, dry.
Perseus Meteor Shower: Peaks this week, Aug 11,12,13 between midnight and dawn. Search for viewing direction & timing. Moonlight should be minimal.
