Thursday's Weather Update: I Smell Rain…

Today: Dry  & cloudy for the morning…By midday, thicker clouds, a boost of moisture arrives & the 1st light raindrops begin to dot the roadways. Plan for rain to continue until late in the evening… The best chance for an embedded thunderstorm may occur over NE OR/SE WA & Clearwater Mountains tonight…High 60°

Overnight: A few passing showers locally, with most of the shower activity in the ID Panhandle

Friday:  Most of the primary rain band continues to zip into the Idaho Panhandle Mountains this morning, leaving just clouds & gusty winds for the morning commute. I'll be mostly cloudy again by lunch with numerous showers & scattered thunderstorms for the afternoon and evening…Low/High 47°/57°

FYI: A combination of warm temps, "Snow-Eater" winds, and copious rain will cause many rivers to rise sharply

    WATCH: Oregon fisherman sues after insane boat crash caught on camera

    Wednesday, January 17 2018 6:12 PM EST2018-01-17 23:12:55 GMT

    CLATSOP COUNTY, Ore. - A salmon fisherman who abandoned ship by leaping into the Columbia river last summer, right before another boat crashed into his, is suing the other boat driver for $372,000. The Oregonian reports that the Clatsop County sheriff's office accused Marlin Lee Larson of several crimes after the boater told investigators he couldn't see where he was driving because the dash of his boat was blocking his view when he was sitting down.
