12z is much drier this week. Still not a bust... Yet.

Looks about the same as the last four runs for Portland and the WV. There is definitely a larger coast range shadow signature showing up on this run

Wrong side of the coast range ;)

Also, we should be able to talk earnestly about drought and potential fire issues in Oregon without making wildly sensationalistic statements about major cities burning to the ground. Kind of robs the discussion of credibility IMO.

Not going to get into it today on that. We all know the possible ramifications at this point for Oregon.

Hate to break it to you but Springfield/Eugene’s not going anywhere. Could definitely be a bad year for smaller rural communities again though.

Dexter/Lowell, Cottage Grove, Creswell, Thurston. I'm concerned for all of them too. They're smaller communities and not in a good spot if we have an east wind event.

Hopefully we can get a June miracle and turn things around just a little.

Although at this point avoiding a desiccated blowtorch in late August thru September might be our best bet. Maybe a nice August 2004 redux thrown in there.

Probably the heaviest rain in the last several weeks right now, which isn’t saying too much. Up to .18” on the day. Too bad the back edge is already moving in.

52 refreshing degrees.

Nope.  Phil invented puddles and the internet when he was recovering from his first bout with Covid-19 in 2011.

Seems like no matter what comes before, a wet August usually prevents a bad fire year. 

Certainly possible to see major wildfires earlier, but the worst events have almost always been in August/September.

Rain and 54 here... another colder than normal day with rain.    But its more enjoyable knowing a beautiful holiday weekend lies ahead.    This is much better than the reverse with nice weather during the week and a washout for the long weekend.  👍

Still raining and foggy here despite very little on the radar right now... up to .75 on the day.      

Yeah... pretty excited for the weekend.   Other than a short break on Wednesday afternoon it will probably rain most of the time here until Friday morning.      It will be really nice to dry out for a few days.

Looks like a healthy band of rain about to move into the Portland area.

It feels humid out there so the air mass is juiced up.     Rooting for all of you down there!
