Portland, Ore. Severe Thunderstorm Watch

We don't often cover severe thunderstorm watches on the blog but this one is quite unusual:
The primary threat is 60 mph gusts and it is in effect until 8pm PDT.

AccuWeather regional radar at 2:45pm PDT shows strong thunderstorms over part of the watch area. They are moving from SSE toward the NNW which is unusual.
During a severe thunderstorm watch, please put lawn furniture, trampolines, grills and other outdoor objects indoors to keep them from blowing around. Put the car in the garage or under the carport. Lightning is an enhanced danger.
