Weather Eye: Holiday, clouds and showers are on the horizon


Monday was about as average as you could get for late May with the temperature in Vancouver at 4 p.m. registering 71 degrees. The partly to mostly sunny skies were also welcome. Today we will slide downhill a bit with more clouds and highs in the 60s. Wednesday is a day similar to Monday but a few degrees higher into the mid-70s.

Of course, the holiday is on the horizon and so are clouds and showers. They will arrive locally some time on Thursday most likely late in the day. Rain on Friday and a few scattered showers possible Saturday. Then an increased chance of showers Sunday. Memorial Day itself may remain a little warmer and drier.

We hope we can salvage some of the long three-day holiday weekend. In Thursday’s column we will take another stab at the forecast as extended forecast models are not in total agreement. Who knows, it could be nicer than we think. On the other hand, well, let’s chat on Thursday.

I guess we won’t be recording an 80-degree high temperature this May unless a miracle happens on Wednesday. Yes, a cool spring lingers without a doubt. Will the corn in your garden be knee-high by the Fourth of July?

The Hazel Dell parade was Saturday after a two-year absence and was a banner day weatherwise with sunny skies and mild temperatures. Practically perfect. You’ll remember I have mentioned in my column year after year that it hardly ever rains on that parade and statistics prove it.

We’ll chat on Thursday and take a look at the weekend.
