Sounds alot like our area Mark, however we have no rain in sight. Temps in the 100's and very low humidity.

Around here when they say Thunder Storms that is sorta mean lots of thunder and lightning with little rain. We did not get any here in 2 days of lightning but there was a dumping of it 40 miles from us!! I live in the real dry part of Eastern Washington. Mark H.

I am puzzled.
Is the weather in Oregon so different from Washington state?
I always thought it rained all the time in Oregon, I have friends who live there.
Then I see how dry it is in Washington and also in California;
is it really so different in that area?

I am on the East Side of the Cascades and as you get away from the Mountian Range it gets real dry because the rain lifts up and settles back down further in on the state. I live in a Desert Sage Area of Eastern Washington. On the West Side of the Mountians (Coast Side) it rains alot, that is where I used to live but got tired of sometimes 4 weeks of rain in a row so I moved to the dry side! Mark H.

probably alot like b.c. and wash lenore, once you leave the rain shadow of the coast mountains things start drying out, alot of the west now however is and has been in a major drought for the last few years, and it carries far inland, even into the prairie provinces, climate change they call it , i donno but things are changing , we don,t even get the snowfall we used to here anymore, vancouver bc is one of the wettest places around and they are burning hot and haven,t had any rain in a long time as well,it s like that all over here, marks in a real dry hot spot even worse that here i think my sister lives just north of him, she said its cookin there.

All depends on the area, Lenore. Even central/eastern Oregon is desert believed or not. The western part does get alot of rain. Believe me I know..I lived there for about a year and I thought it rained ALL the time! LOL. Where I live in the mountains of northern California we get rain nearly all winter long, but from about April until November it gets hot and dry.
