The Cascade Range Defeats the Stratus

I have been traveling a fair bit. This has allowed me to have more of an opportunity to enjoy hot weather. Northwest Washington rarely reaches 90. My latest venture to hotter climates afforded a nice view of Mount Saint Helens.

The stratus forms in the cool air coming over the Pacific

On this day the stratus layer evaporates as it crests the Cascade Range
A fairly typical event in Washington summer weather
