Autumn-like weather: Summer feels like it is nearing it’s end, in our neck of the woods, with autumn-like temperatures and dry air. Yesterday was picture perfect with a high of around 68F and a light breeze. Today, looks to be almost the same, although the temperature will rise somewhat. At the moment (6:30 am), the outdoor temp. is a chilly, yet refreshing 51.6F.
A gully washer of a night: We got 5 ” of rain overnight. That has got to be a record rainfall since we moved here 14 years ago. The rain was steady, with heavy downpours all night long…I think we may have gotten between 2 to 3 inches of rain per hour.
Today, we are under a flood advisory until the swell of the rivers recedes. Many roads have been washed out, so we’ll have to be careful on our outings. Downtown Portland is under at least 3 feet of water.
The outdoor temperature will only rise to 72F today, which will be lovely.
