The weather channel posted this SEVERE WEATHER ALERT for my neck of the woods. To this, I say, Yahoo, bring it on...
...UNSEASONABLY HOT WEATHER WILL BURST INTO SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THURSDAY THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEKEND...
AFTER A VERY PROLONGED PERIOD OF ABNORMALLY COOL SPRING WEATHER ...THE HOTTEST WEATHER OF THE YEAR...MORE LIKE MID SUMMER...WILL BURST INTO SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THURSDAY... THEN CONTINUE OVER THE REGION INTO THE WEEKEND.
THIS WILL BE THE HOTTEST WEATHER SINCE LAST SEPTEMBER.
TEMPERATURES INLAND THURSDAY WILL APPROACH 90...AND ON FRIDAY APPROACH THE MID 90S. TEMPERATURES AT THE COAST COULD REACH INTO THE 80S BOTH THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. RECORDS AT SEVERAL LOCATIONS WILL LIKELY FALL...AND THESE ARE LISTED IN A PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT.
TEMPERATURES OVER THE WEEKEND WILL CONTINUE VERY WARM. A SHALLOW MARINE LAYER MAY BEGIN FORMING ALONG THE COAST THIS WEEKEND THAT WILL BRING SOME RELIEF THERE...BUT ANY SIGNIFICANT COOLING INLAND WILL LIKELY BE SLOW TO TAKE HOLD...POSSIBLY HOLDING OFF UNTIL NEXT MONDAY.
WITH SUCH A RAPID TRANSITION FROM TEMPERATURES NEAR 60 TO TEMPERATURES NEAR OR ABOVE 90...BE SURE TO USE CAUTION IF OUT IN THE HEAT THIS WEEK. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS. WEAR LIGHT CLOTHING. WEAR HATS AND USE SUNSCREEN TO PROTECT THE SKIN FROM THE SUNSHINE. SEEK COOLER OR AIR CONDITIONED AREAS DURING THE HEAT OF THE DAY.
I've repeatedly tried to post pics and videos from the last couple of weeks. We had friends visiting and I have oodles of good stuff. Blogger isn't allowing me to upload anything though. You'll just have to wait.
