|Jones is the easiest, simplest launch to forecast of any location. You can know many days ahead whether to go, or you can know in the next 1/2 hour.

The morning of... look at any satellite image for a cloud layer burning away from Portland, but lingering some in Astoria.

Super heatwaves that can rarely cook up Astoria.
Clouds layers that fail to burn in Kelso/Longview/Portland
