Weather Eye: Summer-like weather will be backdrop for an enjoyable week




Happy Mother’s Day! A perfect weather day is forecast, with highs around 70 degrees and sunshine.

And for good fashion, expect 80 degrees or better this week for highs, with upper 80s later in the week.

Let’s review last month’s rainfall from your friends and neighbors. I recorded 3.81 inches here in Salmon Creek; Murphy Dennis, near Clark County Rifles, 7.18 inches; Claudia Chiasson, Carson, 8.95 inches; Judy Darke, Felida, 3.22 inches; Irv St. Germain, Prune Hill, 5.65 inches; Bob Starr, Cougar, 14.14 inches; Phil Delany, Dole Valley, 10.70 inches; Robin Ruzek, Lake Shore, 3.12 inches; Pete Conrad near Tukes Mountain, 4.57 inches; Merle Moore, two miles west of Yacolt, 9.39 inches; Dave Campbell, one mile west of Heisson, 5.19 inches; Jim Knoll, Five Corners, 4.76 inches; Dan Hein, Camas, 6.18 inches; Tyler Mode, Battle Ground, 4.23 inches; Larry Lebsack, Northeast Hazel Dell, 4.62 inches; Chuck Houghten, Hockinson Heights, 6.88 inches; Tyler Mode from his Minnehaha Station, 3.83 inches; Matt Sloan, McLoughlin Heights,, 5.24 inches; Tom Dixon, Amboy, 11.09 inches; and Ellen Smart, Ridgefield, 3.90 inches.

Said Moore: “I was in California for three weeks, and everyone asked me to send them some rain! That poor state is so dry and parched, and it makes me wonder not only how are the humans going to get through it, but how will the wildlife survive? I really was happy to get back to this emerald, drenched landscape.”

Enjoy your summerlike week.
