I guess if we are stuck in a particular weather pattern, the current one is not all that bad. We will continue to have varying amounts of morning clouds and afternoon sunshine today into the middle of next week. No rain in sight.No sign of the occasional visitor, a pesky low that settles in over Rose Festival time. Not this year. If kind of looked like it earlier last week, but areas of instability and showers will remain over the Cascades and to our east.After two days with highs only in the 60s Monday and Tuesday, we finally made it into the 70s Wednesday. We should be in the 70s for afternoon high temperatures for the next week at least. Close to 70 if clouds hang in longer and closer to 80 if they clear off quickly. All in all, typical late May and early June weather.On the flip side, the middle section of the country is having disastrous weather. Over 1,000 tornadoes have been reported this season and many big ones. The past couple of years we had fewer than average tornadoes in the U.S.With the influx of smartphones, a majority of severe-weather events are now recorded. I watched on social media many terrifying scenes by brave picture takers. I can only imagine the adrenaline running through those people. Watching it on TV is one thing, but actually being there is another.
