On this date back in 1980 Mt. St. Helens erupted. Probably Washington's only REAL news story. In fact, that eruption is really what got me to be a weatherman??? I grew up in Portland and watched with pure fasination as our local mountain woke up. This started a chain reaction that got me into earth science. I grew up wondering about rocks, volcanoes, earth, weather, etc.... all due to St. Helens. Weather ended being my favorite but to this day my ears perk up when ever there is an eruption world wide. So, back to weather, the forecast calls for nearly perfect weather Thursday and Friday, with a nice breeze and sunshine and highs near 70. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly cloudy with some drizzle and highs near 60.
