Weather Eye: Still summery, but we're thinking of fall and winter

By Patrick Timm August 26, 2014 6 a.m.

From the ocean beaches to the deserts and plateaus of our great state, it was summer in its finest fashion yesterday. OK, a little too hot for me and many of you, but one for the memory banks when it is freezing cold out this winter.

Weather Eye: Slightly cooler day will give us break between hot bookends

By Patrick Timm August 24, 2014 6 a.m.

With just a week to go in August the weather continues to behave like summer in a kind way. It was a perfect day Saturday with clear skies and sunshine, great for almost everything. I sat out in the late-summer sun and could feel its warmth.

Weather Eye: Get out and enjoy our great weather this weekend

By Patrick Timm August 21, 2014 6 a.m.

Temperatures fell into the 70s for highs Wednesday — as forecast — giving us some relief from the hot weather. Interesting to note: the temperature of 72 degrees at 2 p.m. Wednesday was the same temperature as midnight Monday.

Weather Eye: Temperatures will cool some, then climb for weekend

By Patrick Timm August 19, 2014 6 a.m.

Another 90-degree day went into the record books Monday as summer warmth continues. Things will temper downward the next few days as mentioned here Sunday. The low that was crossing the Gulf of Alaska increased clouds in Western Washington late Monday. I expect the light precipitation associated with it to remain to our north and along the ocean beaches.

Weather Eye: Warmth today, heat Monday may lead to a cool week

By Patrick Timm August 17, 2014 6 a.m.

Typical summery weather returned Saturday with a few patchy clouds and hazy afternoon sunshine. Temperatures were a bit above normal and will remain warm today — and maybe near 90 Monday.

Weather Eye: Our rain, thunder nothing compared to region's wind, floods

By Patrick Timm August 14, 2014 6 a.m.

There was lots of weather action around the Northwest on Tuesday but little in Clark County. Yes, we had some showers, but they were on the light side. We had some lightning and thunder but just a tease. However, to our west and east there was plenty of it.

Weather Eye: After thunderstorms, cold front will bring us some stability

By Patrick Timm August 12, 2014 6 a.m.

Close but no cigar, as the saying goes. An increase in high clouds kept us from reaching that 100-degree mark for what would have been the first time this summer. As of 5 p.m., Vancouver recorded a high of 98, tying the record set in 1961 (the high temperature could have bumped up a notch after this writing). Thunderstorms will follow, and Monday night into today looked like a possible repeat of two weeks ago.

Weather Eye: The last day of the fair will be a hot one, so get out there early

By Patrick Timm August 10, 2014 6 a.m.

Temperatures early Saturday were in the low 50s in much of the urban area of Clark County but in the low- to mid-40s in the outlying areas. Chilly even. Enjoy that thought as the weather today and Monday will be back in the hot category and overnight lows near 60 much of the week.

Weather Eye: Temperatures will start to cool down soon, really

By Patrick Timm August 5, 2014 6 a.m.

It was another hot day Monday. You keep hearing us weather guys telling you about a cool-down in high temperatures and yet it remains at 90-plus degrees. Want to trade places?

Weather Eye: No rain in sight, but morning clouds may cool us off a wee bit

By Patrick Timm August 3, 2014 6 a.m.

Our heat wave continues, though the high temperature Saturday was down three degrees or so from Friday. Couldn't feel the difference between 90 and 87 degrees? Well, the rise in humidity made up for it.
