Update – Washington Spring Break Weather Forecast
Just a quick post before hopping on a late afternoon flight to Vegas for spring break. What a great Easter weekend, huh? The high temperature at the Portland Airport set new records over the weekend with a pair of 77’s. That is just three degrees shy of the all time high ever recorded in March (80 degrees) at the Airport. That’s no April fools joke either! Looks like we will see a continuation of pleasant weather for the next few days, then a cool down is likely on the way for the second half of the week with a return of showers. For all of you who are enjoying Washington’s spring break this week, get outside and enjoy it while you can. The first half of the week looks like it will provide the best weather. One year ago right now we were still flirting with record low elevation snow. Let’s be glad that is not happening again this year. Ok, time to run. VEGAS HOOOOOO!!!!!
