The weather, currently.
Staying dry tomorrow before rain reigns over the upcoming weekend
Staying dry tomorrow before rain reigns over the upcoming weekend
Quiet weather rounds out the work week before an active pattern develops this weekend as a series of disturbances pass through the Portland Metro. Saturday morning will remain rain-free for any outdoor chores but steady rain will overspread the area during the afternoon which will lead into a soggy Saturday night as some rain could be heavy at times. And the umbrella won’t do us much good as strong winds kick up with gusts to 40 mph that will easily turn any umbrella inside out. Good sleeping in weather prevails for Sunday morning as the rain continues to fall and we may even hear a few rare rumbles of thunder.Staying dry tomorrow before rain reigns over the upcoming weekend — Lauren Casey

Study shows how redlining and #pollution mix: “people who live in neighborhoods that were once categorized as “hazardous”…now breathe 56% more of the freeway pollutant nitrogen dioxide than those in top-rated areas.” ⁦@guardianhttps://t.co/HFWz9os7uR
A new study found that redlining practices from 100 years ago have led to higher levels of air pollution today, according to reporting from The Guardian. Air pollution impacts health— worsening conditions such as asthma and cardiovascular disease.
This study illustrates the ongoing impacts of racist policies and why we currently need investment into communities that face environmental injustices.
In an interview with the Guardian, Julian Marshall, one of the studies authors said, 
“Environmental inequalities are immediate and local, but they’re also systemic and long term,” said Marshall. “So that means the solutions also need to last longer than one presidential administration. We inherited this problem, but we need to act now to prevent it from continuing in the future.”
