But mountains don't have to be measured in thousands of feet to create their own weather patterns.
Friday, August 1, 10:00 AM
We start August off with a bang, boom and a few lightning strikes!
Active weather, including thunder, lightning and heavy downpours moved through the area overnight. However, the afternoon is looking much calmer, humid and hot. Highs will be in the upper 80s again. Sunshine will be more filtered today- clouds still dot the sky from morning thunderstorms. There is a chance of thunderstorms firing over the Cascades and Gorge again later this afternoon. Tonight, skies turn partly cloudy. Overnight lows will be near 60 degrees.
Tomorrow and Sunday, the weather returns to endless summer. Daytime highs will be in the mid 80s. There will likely be some morning clouds around the area. The warm weather and dry weather will extend into next week.
