Time for my weekly weather quiz question. Here it is. This time we’ll have a weather and the movies question. In the famous 1952 Gene Kelly movie “Singin’ in the Rain” the rain that fell wasn’t just water because the water didn’t show up well enough on film. What was added to the falling water to make it look more like rain? Please remember to post your answer as a comment by clicking on “no comments /comments” in the upper right hand portion of this page under the caption, then add your comment. The first person to post the correct answer will win a week of free personalized weather forecasts tailored to your needs. The answer has to be a comment to win. An email answer will not count. Good luck.

Your Saturday College football forecasts:

The Beavers vs BYU at Reser Stadium – Kickoff: 1:00 PM A mix of clouds and sun (sometimes more sun than clouds),  60 warming to 64 by the end of the game.

The Ducks vs. Arizona State at Autzen Stadium – Kickoff: 7:15 PM A mix of clouds and sun, near 62 falling through the low 50s as the game ends.

A weak high pressure ridge (“arch” forming on the orange jet stream line) will build up just long enough to give us a series of dry days. A frontal system pushed through Oregon bringing some pretty heavy showers with it and now high pressure at the surface (represented by “H”) is combining with the upper air ridge to clear us out for some sunshine.  The question is when will it fade another upper level low (“U” shape on jet stream line) set up off the coast to bring back the rain.
