Two To Go

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Monday May 6
Only two damp, chilly days to go until --> ☀️  Lots of Sunshine  ☀️
A long-waited WARM-UP arrives soon.  But first, cold air moving in today - Monday - presenting showers & thunderstorms across much of the region.  On & off peaks of sun between the showers, but the air will remain quite chilly for May.  That all changes abruptly on Wed May 8.  High pressure ridge begins to build up over the PNW, ushering in the WARMEST stretch of weather thus far in 2024!  
Indeed, sunshine returns, with warming each day later this week.  Current projections are for temps on Fri & Sat popping up into the 80s.  (Some model runs even hint at a chance for a 90+ here & there about the PNW.)  The coming weekend looks absolutely awesome.  Dry & warm.  Temps may tap down a few degrees come Sunday, as onshore flow increases.  Lots of pink faces possible at work or school come next Monday the 13th, but oh the joy of outdoor warmth & sunshine.  
Right now, we see the dry period continuing through the week of May 13 - 17.  The onshore component will hold temps in the pleasant zone (not too hot, not too cold) all that week.  There should be a notable west wind up the Columbia River Gorge - go windsurfers! 
With some variation, models do project a return to showery, cool conditions around Sunday or Monday, May 19,20.  However, that downturn may be short-lived, as high pressure is on the charts to rebuild an onshore push by Wed the 22nd, for a return to pleasant conditions.  
A quote used in 2009:  “Men fight for freedom and then start making laws to get rid of it."
