Monday May 24
Last week of the fifth month. The arrival of hot weather in June is looking likely, so Patron, appreciate the cool dampness while it is present. We’re appreciating a hot Mug of java on this cool May Monday, too (java is an historic term carried from the introduction of coffee, by the Dutch, to SE Asia - including the island of Java in the 1600s).
Rather damp today into Tue. Wed should be a bit warmer & drier, before the last of the current series of disturbances passes by Wed night through Thu. The likely sound of rain on the roof Wed night will be appreciated by many. As the holiday weekend gets set to start, Fri will present as dry & mild.
Memorial Day weekend: turning warmer by the day; in fact, by Sunday the 80 degree mark is possible in several western OR locations. Even warmer on Memorial Day. Keep those men & women who gave their lives for our freedom & country foremost in your thoughts on the 31st.
As June gets underway, expect the wx patten to remain in a dry, almost hot, mode - upper 70s to upper 80s possible - for a couple more days. Then, on Thu the 3rd, a weak system may clip Vancouver Island & NW WA with some showers & breezy conditions. Much cooler. Most of OR will remain dry, cooler. NOTE: it may be VERY WINDY east of the Cascades, including ID. This system will create a notable stir of wind on the ground as it moves east.
1st Heat Up ?? Well, with the month of June underway, we are following indications for the first PNW heat up of the year developing in time for the weekend of Jun 5,6. Temps in the 90s possible west side of OR, with a triple digit tease for Medford; upper 80s in much of western WA. We are not yet forecasting as a ‘heat wave’ because the conditions may not last 3 consecutive days. The extended-range outlook is for a cool down (onshore air conditioning kicks in) Mon & Tue Jun 7,8 knocking off 10-12 degrees from the highs. BUT, heat may return again by mid-week, with temps threatening 90s again Wed Jun 9 into the following weekend. Stay tuned.
WELCOME to the new OVS website. I will now be able to post images, graphs, etc., as needed to provide supportive info for this blog. Thanks for your patience!
