Mike Olbinski, a fantastic photographer who lives in Arizona, has spent the summer chasing the monsoon storms that wrought towering thunderclouds, vivid lightning, incredible downpours and intense dust storms.
Friday, October 31st 6:00 PM
Mostly dry skies tonight for trick or treaters.
The dry weather should even hold through the first part of the weekend. An upper level trough that moved across the northwest this morning has pushed east of The Cascades. Rainfall totals have been impressive. 1.52" in Vancouver, 1.16" in Portland and 1.27" in Hillsboro.
A drier flow from the northwest and a weak ridge will slowly dry us out tonight and Saturday. Temperatures will remain cool, highs will only reach the middle 50s. Snow levels in the mountains will hover about the 4,500 foot level.
Sunday we return to a more active weather pattern with rainy and breezy conditions.
Tonights low 45
Saturdays high 57
