I owe you a better picture
But I'll have plenty of opportunities to show you a picture of me wearing it. according to this recent update from the National Weather Service, and I quote from the KGW TV web site:
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Summer, cancelled? The National Weather Service's long-term forecast calls for a a cool and wet July, according to KGW Meteorologist Rod Hill.
What would a cool and wet July look like? Hill said that a worst-case forecast would include seven to 12 days with measurable rainfall, a lot of cloudy mornings, and up to 15 days with highs only in the 66-76 range.
Hill noted that the all-time record for July rainfall was 2.68 inches, set in 1983.
"If you look at a national temperature map, it's almost like we have become a separate continent," said Hill, "because literally everybody else in the lower United States is in a different season than we are. I mean, it really is just absolutely nuts!"
