Weather Eye: Dry, fair weather to follow a cloudy, wet start to the week

Skies were slow to clear around the Northwest Saturday but afternoon sunshine was enjoyed by all and most high temperatures in Western Washington were in the low to mid-60s. Vancouver reached 65, a bit below average.

Clouds increase Monday and rain will surely follow with showers and clearing periods on Tuesday. The higher elevations will get some snowfall. We should see fresh snow on Mount Hood when skies clear on Wednesday. Wednesday through Saturday we will have dry, fair weather with easterly wind. It will be on the cool side with highs touching 60 or so.

Mark your calendars for Oct. 26 for the Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorology Society’s winter forecast meeting at OMSI. Dr. Cliff Mass, professor at the University of Washington will be speaking. Get there early as I expect standing room only.

Our average high for the date is 68 degrees. As mentioned above, we are unlikely to reach that this coming week.

So far here in Vancouver the average mean temperature for October is running 6.5 degrees below average at 51.8 degrees. No big warmup in sight either.

Better pay attention to those woolly bears as it may be a cold winter. The dry days this week make for a good opportunity to winterize the house and yard without a soaking rain. I will chat with you right here on Tuesday.
