Brief Changes, But Changes Nonetheless

First of all if you didn’t get to see the eclipse, I’m right there with ya! I went out at 6:00 a.m. and saw nothing but fog and cloud cover! However, we had a couple great photos sent in that I wanted to share.  We did catch that deep red glow with this one, and for areas that were clear, I’ve heard it was absolutely beautiful.

If you want to know the reason why the eclipse had the red coloring, one of my Facebook friends posted this great video that explains it really well.

For the forecast, the small disturbance that moved in today didn’t really do much.  The same will be the case for tomorrow.  I’m keeping slight chances for drizzle before 4 p.m. in the forecast, especially for the coast.  However, I expect most of us will not see a drop.  The one area to watch out for is towards the Portland region, where there could be a wintery mix.

 

The beginning of the week will bring another ridge of high pressure.  However, this will not be as strong as the last one, and stagnant air will not be as bad.  I also think we could beat the fog out Monday and Tuesday, and possibly catch some afternoon sun breaks. Temps will gradually warm up both days.

 

Mid-week our next storm will move. Right now it looks to be the first chance of real rain in December.  Because of the cloud cover and warmer mid-level temps, we should be able to grab warmer temps for Wednesday and Thursday, with the rain starting the last half of Wednesday.  Showers will move in and out pretty quickly, with most of the region dry by mid-afternoon on Thursday.  This will, however, bring some fresh snow to the ski resorts, however the fast moving system will not be able to make up for the dry past few weeks.

 

To end the week cold air will stick around at first, but sun breaks will be possible again.  We’ll also see the return of fog and high pressure.
