My colleague Matt Brode actually dug up this little nugget you see in the graphic here. I guess I’d blocked out how bad last spring was.
In a nutshell:
- Portland 2012: The city recorded its third day in the 80s on May 7th
- Portland 2011: The city did NOT have an 80 degree day until June 4
- Portland 2011: The city took until July 2nd to record its third day in the 80s
Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. And what I will be talking about this coming weekend: Saturday, Sunday (Happy Mother’s Day!) and Monday should all be in the 80s.
So even if the “Rose Festival Low” brings us a cool and wet June this should help tide us over until July 5th!
