An upper level disturbance is moving through today and tonight bringing showers to the area then a fast moving, moist front will blast through later tonight into tomorrow morning, so, more rain but since it is going to go through rather quickly, we likely only see around an inch to an inch and a half of rain from this one. This will increase river flow rates some, but flooding is still not a concern.

Tomorrow starts out rainy then we get back into scattered showers behind the front that persist through the night but start to diminish early Friday morning. With enough clearing around daybreak we could see some patchy fog and once that burns off, we likely see some partly sunny skies with weak high pressure moving across.

More clouds move in again late Friday ahead of the next front that brings rain in again Saturday morning, and as usual, is followed by scattered showers through Sunday. The long-range models suggest more rain for Monday then showers Tuesday, then, maybe…just maybe, high pressure builds in and breaks the current pattern. Fingers crossed.

High temperatures running 49-54, lows 42-47.

Seeking Volunteers for Tillamook’s Waterfront Work Party, April 27th

The City of Tillamook, the Tillamook Bay Watershed Council (TBWC), Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP), and the Tillamook County Historical Society (TCHS) have joined forces to organize the second Waterfront Work Party for April 27th. As with the successful March work party, efforts will focus on the removal of invasive plants and restoration of trails and viewing docks along the city’s historic waterfront parks from 9:00AM and 3:00PM. The community is encouraged to join the fun anytime during those hours. The City is providing pizza and soft drinks, and TBWC, TEP and TCHS are providing gloves, tools, volunteers, and native-plant expertise.

“We were blown away by how much our volunteers got done at the February party,” said Rob Russell, Coordinator for the TBWC and President of the TCHS. “It was exciting to see everyone’s hard work pay off, and to uncover some beautiful, forgotten places that were laying there just under the ivy and blackberry. It was especially fun to find the remnants of the old waterfront buildings, now covered in mass and fern.”

The Hoquarton Slough frontage in downtown Tillamook was once a bustling port and industrial center until the late 1950s. The land adjacent to the US101 bridge was purchased by the City in the 1990s, and was developed into two waterfront parks—Hoquarton Park on the east side of the highway, and Sue H. Elmore Park on the west side. Hoquarton Park features an interpretive trail and viewing platforms along the water, while Sue H. Elmore Park offers picnic areas, restrooms, and a public ramp for paddling and boating. Goodspeed Trail borders Hoquarton Park to the south, and connects the waterfront parks with Goodspeed Park on Third Street.

The City of Tillamook is planning a grand re-opening of its waterfront parks and trail this spring, so stay tuned for more news. If you would like to volunteer for the Waterfront Work Party, meet us in the parking lot of Hoquarton Park on Saturday, April 27th between 9AM and 3PM, bring a friend, and help make history!
