'New Month' Storm before Warmth

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday May 31
Warm-up coming after the ’New Month’ storm drenches the region.  Refill time.
Pleasant conditions across the PNW today through most of Saturday.  Mild temps.  Clouds will begin to roll in Saturday over the Puget Sound, with RAIN arriving by Sunday morning across the PNW.  
The ’New Month’ storm will be a real soaker for all of the PNW.  Eastern basins will also get precip, at times.  Expect the steady moderate-to-heavy rain to continue through Sunday night. Blustery!  Monday morning looks wet, as well, although the main front will have passed to the east.  A secondary band of rain may arrive later Monday into early Tue.  Most of the precip this time will fall over areas north of Salem.
Clearing begins late Tue, with a rapid warm-up for the entire PNW by Thu.  (Patrons in southern BC and NW WA may have lingering clouds on Wed Jun 5.)  Temps will pop into. the 80s, maybe a few 90s in the usual hot spots.  The warm pattern will hold into the weekend of Jun 8,9 — although models draw moisture up from the south over the eastern basins, combined with an onshore push of ‘air conditioning’ for western valleys.  Overall, it should be a mostly dry weekend.  
For Jun 10 - 15: continued moisture over eastern OR into ID, with increasing chance for thunderstorms to the east & over the Cascades. Some storms may move out over the Willamette Valley late week.  It will be rather warm and MUGGY, esp for OR.  Patrons in NW WA are likely to remain somewhat cooler, with an onshore wind picking-up late week.  
Generally dry & mild for the weekend of Jun 15,16.
