Typical August Pattern

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday July 30
Last post for this month.  Not a lot of change, although some moisture, potentially, is peeking into the picture for southern BC & NW WA.  Let’s take a Mug minute.
Dry pattern remains, unless one gets caught under a thunderstorm, mainly along slopes and to the east of the Cascades.  Some of these storms may wander west enough to bring a clap of thunder to southern Willamette Valley over the next 2 days.  It will remain HOT, with a cooler pattern beginning on Sunday.  
Still dry & a few degrees cooler next week, with a Pacific Low moving towards Vancouver Is & the NW corner of WA later in the week.  There are charts that hint of precip for areas around the Puget Sound, north beginning over N Vanc Island late Wed Aug 4, spreading SE by Thu evening.  Showers, if they develop at all, could last Thu & Fri.  Sorry OR Patrons, we may only get a cloudy period; no precip.  COOLER, of course.  
The weekend of Aug 7,8 is trending dry everywhere; seasonal temps.  It will begin to warm up again late that weekend, continuing on through most of the following week, Aug 9-13 (yep, 90s again for western OR; tad cooler for the Sound).  After Fri the 13th, temps will again cool down with the onshore flow increasing across the region.
Extra Cream & Sugar:  we continue to get reports of the Song of Summer (think western field crickets) beginning in areas of the Willamette Valley.  At least something remains ’normal’.  Oh, and our Giant Pumpkin is growing at a steady 12-15 pounds every 24 hrs, coming in at 258 lb. today.
