Mostly Dry

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday May 24
First holiday weekend of ’the summer’ begins after 5 today (for our US Patrons).  Weather will be fair after a damp start.  What will the following 10 days bring?  Well, that’s why you should have a Mug ready as you keep reading.
Wet system moving onshore as we write.  Most of the rainfall will be finished before Saturday afternoon, with warmer temps and a rather pleasant holiday weekend remaining - for OR, ID and the eastern basins.  However, please note, another, weaker disturbance is now charting to arrive over the Puget Sound region overnight Saturday, with additional showers & cloudiness into early Sunday morning the 26th.  Memorial Day itself continues to chart as dry & mild.
The short post-holiday work/school week looks to present increasing clouds on Tue, with showers possible - but not many.  Westerly winds really pick up in the Columbia River Gorge.  Go windsurfers!  Wed - Fri next week look dry & mild.  Temps may bump up into the 70s, esp over western OR, as the month of May comes ends.
June will start with a dry & mild-to-warm Saturday, turning cloudy, with a few widely scattered showers, mainly north of Portland on Sunday the 2nd (this system may not verify).  Then, indications are for a round of dry & rather WARM weather for the first week of June.  Westerly onshore breeze will pick-up mid-week, helping to tap down temperatures.  Still dry.  Friday and Saturday, June 7,8 may be a warm, with temps in the upper 80s possible; hotter east side.
Broadly speaking, expect some short-shots of precip at times, with lots of DRY DAYS throughout the next couple of weeks; much warmer late in the period.
