6.14" of rain in October that's over 3" above normal. Now it looks like drier weather is returning for at least the first week of November. Go figure, this is turning into an interesting fall.

A weak ridge will begin to build across the region tonight, keeping us dry. I do expect wide spread areas of fog on Friday morning. Some areas could see visibilites below 1/4 of a mile.

After the fog lifts we should have partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will remain in the low 60s, about 5 degrees above average.

Through at least the middle of next week we'll have no better than a 40% chance of rain. Freezing levels will remain well above pass levels.

Tonight's low 51
Friday's high 60

We finally did it, our first 80 degree day of 2015.

At 5pm the official high temperature at Portland International was 81 degrees. That's 19 above normal for this time of year. It's also the warmest we're going to be for a while.

Later tonight cooler marine air will start to push through the gaps in The Coast Range. Tuesday expect partly cloudy skies and temperatures about 10 to 15 degrees cooler. There will even be a chance of some showers on along the ocean beaches. 

Cooler and partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue for the rest of the week. a stronger weather system will arrive later this week with a much better chance of rain.

Tonight's low 49

Tuesday's high 68

Weather Blog Watch: Lightning strikes two jets on approach to Sea-Tac Airport Watch: Lightning strikes two jets on approach to Sea-Tac Airport (Photo Gallery) (Video)
SEATTLE -- Some of the people on their way into Seattle Wednesday evening got quite the hello from Mother Nature as lightning struck two different jets as they approached Sea-Tac Airport.

University of Washington student Owen Craft was out in the University District trying to film lightning strikes as a thunderstorm moved through and caught the two massive bolts as they passed through the planes' fuselage.

"I was stunned for a second because I couldn't believe what I just saw," Craft said. "After the second (plane) got hit, I knew I was on to something spectacular!"
