Blog Promo: Winter Still Reigns in Portland

140 Comments

We were perturbed to read in today's Oregonian that our fair city just broke a dubious record: This is "the longest stretch without a 60 degree day since record-keeping began at the airport in 1940," according to the O.

Ouch.

Following last year's June-uary, it looks like we're going to have another cold, wet spring.  But we like to look on the bright side here at Commuter Central.  So we're turning our wet, cool spring into a chance to win some schwag.

Just leave a comment or email us your prediction for when Portland will officially hit 60 degrees.  If you're correct you'll have a chance to win an iTunes gift card or a Spring Blooms Eternal kit to get you ready for Portland's third best season (according to me).  In the meantime, here is an image to get you cogitating on your guess.

You didn't use my catchy phrase "Spring is the New Winter", my feelings are hurt.

I predict we will hit the 60 degree mark on Wednesday, April 6. I hope so, at least. I'm so cold.

The weather folks said it will be Thursday. They've lied to me so often though I just don't know if I'll ever be able to trust.

April 1st. It'll be like a cruel joke. Then it will rain again.

@ H of the M: Spring is the new Winter. Ha! That's funny.

I think it will get to be 60 degrees on Tuesday, April 5th. I hope so. It's more fun to ride in on my bike when the temperatures are high and precipitation is low. I hope we don't have another summer like the last one.

Tomorrow (like the song)(not. Otherwise known as March 30th. I'm an optimist, by the way!

I predict Portland will reach 60 degrees on Sunday, April 3 because I'm leaving town that day.

I predict Thursday, March 31st, although I don't mind riding my bike in the 50's because I don't sweat.

According to the news station we will hit 60 on Thursday March 31st! I hope so, I am soooo ready

I think we'll hit 60 degrees on April 10th. I wish it were sooner, but it's not looking to good. I can't wait for the cold, wet, windy weather to pass!

I am an April Fool, because I want to believe we will miraculously hit 60 on Friday April 1st.

So, that's my vote. Better than tax day, or at least more optimistic :-)

Tomorow! To... no, I'm not going to sing. But it'll pass 60 on Mar 31. (For a day or two)

If I get two guesses, my second guess would be April 8.

I'd be a fool to pick April 1, and the optimist in me predicts one last chance at a 60 degree day in March. So the answer must be Thursday, March 31st.

Hello!

My guess is that we will hit 60° on Thursday of this week!

thanks!

Please, oh please let it be at least Thursday, March 31. Otherwise, we will be made fools of come Friday!

I'm going to say 3/31/11 but in all honesty I feel like it might be sometime in 2012. Hey Portland weather, YOU SUCK!

Man, there is a lot of optimism here that it will be in the next couple of days, but I am gonna go with Monday, April 4th.

I'm betting a little against the weather people that we will reach 60 degrees on Thursday, the final day of March. Hopefully, April will be bright, sun-filled and full of spring blooms.

I'll prognosticate that the first 60 degree day will be Wednesday April 30th

April 1 @ 1pm.

Look forward to a day I can commute with just shorts and jersey - what a concept!
