The weather, currently.
Scattered showers for your Monday
Scattered showers for your Monday
We are tracking yet another atmospheric river over the Pacific Northwest. However, this time, the main axis of the river will be far enough north of Portland that we expect only to be clipped by periods of light showers. Rainfall totals of about a quarter to maybe a half an inch are possible with this system. Otherwise, expect cloudy skies and highs around 50°. Overnight, the temperatures will drop in the mid-40s.
The NWS is monitoring the air quality in the southern Willamette Valley. If the weather ends up being drier than predicted, Air Stagnation Advisories may be issued.

"I would have never believed this to be even physically possible."

I spoke to meteorologists around the world about the extreme weather of 2021: many thanks to @triciadesigned @extremetemps @climateguyw and @ScottDuncanWX for their thoughts.
According to reporting from The Guardian, 400 weather stations around the world beat their all-time highest temperature records in 2021. Scientists say that the extreme heat around the world is one of the most alarming and obvious signs of climate change.
All around the globe heatwaves caused destruction and death in 2021. The heatwave over the summer in North America spurred on wildfires and alone was linked to hundreds of deaths.

Currently weather alert: A winter storm is on the way to the Northeast tonight.

For many, this will be the first significant snow of the season. It will feel really cold and blustery after the storm passes Friday night, with wind chills in the single digits, so dress warmly.
