After reviewing the forecast, at this time, we do NOT anticipate a Severe Weather Alert will be issued for the evening of Tuesday January 11, 2011 in Multnomah County. Emergency Shelters are open in Clackamas County.
The National Weather Service predicts the following:
After reviewing the forecast for 1/3/11, I want to check in with you regarding the weather.
At this time, we do NOT anticipate a Severe Weather Alert will be issued for January 3, 2011. Local weather will be partly cloudy, with a low around 25° F. East northeast wind around 6 mph. The criteria used to determine a Severe Weather Alert and the corresponding opening of Red Cross emergency warming centers is:
A low temperature predicted at or below 22° F, or three or more nights predicted at or below 25° F.
At this time, we do NOT anticipate that a severe weather alert (SWA) will be issued for Friday (12/17) through the weekend.
Currently, forecasted conditions suggest that temperatures and wind may briefly (for approx. two hours) come close to meeting SWA criteria early Saturday (12/18) morning (from 2-4 AM). And, while snow is forecast tomorrow from 4-9 AM, it is expected that there will be little or no accumulation.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one in the past few months:
Candidate X is trying to take away the thing you cherish, because he’s a negative word.
After all that negativity it is nice to be reminded that there are some uplifting things going on in our community. The Winter Warming Center for Homeless Families at Eastminster Presbyterian Church is now open because of a collaboration among nonprofit, faith-based and government entities.
