Labor Day 2023
Good morn’n, Patron ☕️.  Here’s your holiday update for the extended forecast, then back to a ‘day off’.
Mild temps this week, with mostly sunny afternoons.  No organized rain producers on the charts this week, although a very weak trough may cross over N WA & BC on Wed with increased cloudiness for a day.  The coming weekend continues to chart quite pleasant for Sept, with temps mostly in the 70s; low-to-mid 80s in portions of western OR and many east side locations.
The week of Nine Eleven will start out on the warm side, as temps could climb into the upper 80s, maybe even a 90+ in southern OR.  In our last report, we discussed the possibility for a minor ‘heat-up’ during the later part of that week (Mt Angel Oktoberfest time), now however, models are suggesting a change in pattern, with a couple Low pressure troughs working into the PNW - meaning increased clouds, mild temps and a chance for showers from roughly Thu evening through the weekend of Sept 16,17.  Let’s hold off on ‘locking down' this forecast, as model charts frequently shift back to earlier prognostications.  For today, we’ll consider the Mon-Wed period of Sept 11-15 will be the warmest days.  
🌀We should also point out that during 9/11 week, a tropical disturbance - currently west of Africa - may intensify into a hurricane (LEE) and subsequently threaten landfall along the mid-Atlantic seaboard by the end of that week. 
Thunderstorms action could return again on Mon Sept 18 for a day or two.  Other than that, the week of Sept 18-22 is trending mild early, with a chance for a pacific storm to arrive late week.  
Overall, September could present the PNW with a ’standard-fare' weather pattern - not to excessive on moisture nor temperatures.  Let's check again in 4 days to see if this holds true, shall we?
