The West Is Best To Start The Holiday Weekend

Oregon will lead the way on the first day of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Perfect 10s through much of the eastern part of the state extending into Idaho, California and Nevada. Alaska will see the worst overall weather but the Southeast Panhandle will not be as bad as the rest of the state. In the lower 48, Wyoming will be on the bottom.

Pacific Northwest In Store For Spectacular Summer Weekend

Saturday July 27th, 2012

Sunday July 29th, 2012

Sunday will be ever so slightly better than Saturday in terms of the national mean, rising from 6.6 to 6.7, however the number of perfect 10’s drops from over 1,500 to just over 500. The Great Lakes, mainly Lake Huron and Lake Superior will see a large number of perfect 10’s on Saturday, but those will disappear on Sunday. Only the higher elevations of the West Coast will see any perfect weather Sunday.

Some picks for Saturday include: Marquette, Michigan…Crisp Point, Michigan…Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Michigan…Point Beach State Park, Wisconsin…Oakridge, Oregon…Mckenzie Bridge, Oregon…and Costa Mesa, California.

Picks for Sunday: Lucerne, Washington…Freedom, California…Grant Grove, California.

This will be another spectacular weekend in the Pacific Northwest, with Oregon and Washington both reach the top of the list this weekend. If you’re camping under the tall fir trees, lucky you!

South Carolina appears twice on the bad list this weekend due to the terrible heat and humidity along with afternoon storms.

Perfect Weather Hard To Come By This Weekend

Saturday July 14th, 2012

Sunday July 15th, 2012

Not a lot of perfect weather this weekend as summer heat continues to depress the Perfect Weather Index. Sunday will be marginally better than Saturday and really only due to the improving conditions along the West Coast. The only perfect 10’s this weekend occur along the California Coast. When I say the California Coast, really I mean just inland about 5-10 miles or so where temperatures are a little warmer. There is only one location that shows up as a perfect 10 on both days and that is Vista, California. Click here to see their perfect forecast! Overall, Vermont is on top Saturday and Oregon is best on Sunday. Nice weather also builds north all the way to Southeast Alaska. Partly cloudy and 71 on Sunday in Ketchikan, so if you’re lucky enough to be cruising the Inside Passage this weekend, enjoy.
