Beerfest weekend has been sunny for as long as I remember. Some people may have been scared by the forecast, so here is the one I trust the most… courtesy of Steve.
Cats and Dogs
Pressed for time today, so this will be short and sweet (just like the intermittent deluges of rain we’ve had recently, often referred to as “raining cats and dogs”). By the way, the origin of the expression is not known, but could be from a phrase in a Jonathan Swift poem that describes the filthy streets of London during the 17/18th century. It seems that heavy rain would wash out all the debris (including dead animals) into the streets.
Yeesh. I’m not sure I’ll use that expression again.
For this weekend, the effects of a low pressure system moving up from Oregon will graze us on Friday, then move off - resulting in sunny conditions by Sunday.
Friday: Cloudy with a chance of showers (it will rain on the mainland - whether it rains here depends on how far west it reaches). Winds light with highs of 20 C.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with gradual clearing through the day. Winds light with highs of 22 C.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy (especially in coastal areas) in the a.m., then clearing in the afternoon. Winds light with highs of 23 C.
Although the weather this weekend will have a few barks….enjoy all the wags.
