I hate to brag, but I did pretty well with the cold snaps this winter also.

Its not a competition.

 

And I wasn't talking about this year.

 

Richard though is by far the most accurate on here the last few years.

WRF has backed off on the snow for up here. Keeps the snow level about 2000'. The 12z operational looks good for 1-2" at my location tomorrow night. I think I'll probably see some wet snow. Maybe an inch at the most. 12z is a pretty cool run throughout.

No offense, but he was predicting a moderate El Niño for 2012-13, onward.

Unless you're referring to west-coast specific weather?

hey, "Timmy". 
 
.. Southern Oregon, your under, if only more "just", the main more light-weight type ridge that we are more south here, down in CA. … Of course Portland and some parts more northward had some significant rain yesterday, and then with that rain, with it and further north seeing the main dirtier cresting portion of that ridging more today. 
 
I'm planning to be heading north to Bend, to visit my parents (do some "skiing" with my father, a Mt. Bachelor.) the first week of April. .. Overnight in Klamath Falls: older, funky car. And so, watching things develop weatherwise from here to there, from here to then, hoping for some things more "fresh" nearer to that point.
 
.. What I'm seeing more at this point, or from now and where looking more ahead, is with main colder air sitting out over the Pacific looked at more broadly, currently moving both South and still more quickly east (if due to slow.), some chance of the general ridging over us being cut down some, and with this, its otherwise hopefully be caused to shift eastward not too, gradually. This making room for colder air to move closer to the greater Coast with its both continued press south together with if more slowed progress east, through the 23rd, when it begins to retract daily more northward again:  allowing the potential for its meeting with warmer and wetter air mass in its path east, up from the south, to bring us all another decent round of precip.. …

 
 Good chance of something close to this scenario's playing out evidently, with what's showing as of yesterday from the NWS's main "Climate Prediction Center", looking at the basic chances of / for "Normal", "Below" or "Above" precip expected for from the 22nd through the 28th of this month.

Seriously? If western were still up I'm pretty sure I could dig up hundreds of posts claiming a Niño for 2012-13. I spent so many hours debating that with you it drove me insane.

Again, no disrespect intended, but I know I'm not crazy. :)

Wow... another .28 at SEA already today bringing the monthly total to 6.87 inches.

 

And another inch or more coming later today.     SEA will be closing in on a record wet March (8.40 inches) very soon.    

 

Much more rain possible later this week as well.    This is feeling like last March right now with heavy rain around SEA... while Oregon is in the warm sector.

 

We are in Idaho right now... mild and cloudy today and then stormy tonight.   Looks very windy tomorrow... maybe with lots of fresh snow on the slopes.

When it's windy in Idaho do they have medium structure damage or power lines/transformers explode like here in Western Oregon when winds get up to the 45 to 50mph range or does it take a whole lot more?       The last wind event in late January when winds gusted just under 45mph made our lights flicker like crazy though they didn't go out but it came pretty close at times and it wasn't even a real windstorm.

 

From somebody I talked to who experienced the 1995 Wind Storm the power was out for the entire town of Silverton including both hills for slightly over 24 hours.   Roths IGA had to close because of the duration of the power outage since usually the lights come back on after a few hours.

I'm wondering if there's even a chance for a rain snow mix out here tonight. Precip looks heavy and the incoming airmass is fairly cold. Depends on if/where the front stalls.

I meant that cold fronts usually move through quickly. I am talking about the blog that was posted here a few days ago which said that usually most of cold front precip is before the cold front, but today we have a rare event where it's after the front.

.. It's not.  And so if you could please "stop" working to "press" your thinking regarding this idea, I'd certainly appreciate it. 

 

As a general courtesy, in effort to respond to your statement here above as cordially as possible, ...  (Here more publicly.)

 

... Per my own recollection (If only.), of what I had suggested, "predicted" (your words, above.) regarding ENSO 2012-13, at the time ... whatever time you've had in mind, .. you have both, apparently, misinterpreted, and so misrepresented, what I had said. 

 

[Moreover. ?] .. With what I had, or otherwise, not in fact being retrievable for further exploration .... of your observation: apparently, leastwise, working to point to my infallibility where considering my present status and efforts .... as a more simple, "weather enthusiast" level, weather and climate prognostian,  .... I'm really not seeing how we can take this "dispute" much further.

The 12z WRF indicates decent clearing Wednesday and Thursday nights and mostly clear skies Friday and Saturday nights. Should be some frost in there.

I feel I need to make a public apology to Richard. I'm going through a lot right now, and I let my anger get in the way of common sense.

I'll be "suspending" myself from posting in this thread for the next week while I handle the problems I'm facing.

SEA is picked up another .44 in the last 4 hours.

Now up to 7.66 for the month.

Just another .78 for the wettest March ever. Something tells me that we are going to crush this record in the end.

SEA NWS Statement

 

... A very wet March so far... 

March 2014 has been a soaker for western Washington... with climate 
sites already exceeding their normal amounts of rainfall for the 
entire month with two weeks left. Sea-Tac Airport and NWS Seattle 
have already broke into the top 3 for wettest March... while 
Olympia and Hoquiam are knocking on the top ten door.

If you are wondering how the Sea-Tac record compares to the old 
record site at the Seattle federal building... the wettest March 
there was 7.23 inches in 1950. 

The Table below shows the current March precipitation amount as of 6 
PM this evening... with the top ten ranking so far in parenthesis. 

                          March March wettest March 
                          2014 normal on record

Sea-Tac Airport 7.22(3) 3.72 8.40 in 1950 
Olympia 7.23(12) 5.29 11.79 in 1997 
Quillayute 12.37(18) 10.83 23.24 in 2007 
Hoquiam 10.43(11) 6.99 15.13 in 1997 
Bellingham 3.79(17) 3.22 7.03 in 1950 
NWS Seattle @Sandpoint 6.42(2) 3.51 7.81 in 1997

Feeling like "rain" here more south. /  A good sign certainly, for people "north of the pecos" (?):  appreciating more cold, in line with their interests more general as stated.

 

 (.. It was drop this up, or ask for an errant post to be deleted. With your pardon.)
 
.. What side am I on where considering the idea. ?  /  I'll take about 13, more months of "Winter"

As much as I love the gloom, a few dry days to break the bike out would be nice.

Looks like the sticking snow level only fell to about 2,000' overnight. Fresh coating on the mountains above that. Hit a low of 37.

I have a gut feeling some kind of warm front will ruin the sunny days later this week and make it icky looking.    Early last week was perfect.  Warm but not muggy with the skies absolutely clear wall to wall for a couple days bringing very bright conditions.     Last Thursday it was 55F at midnight!  Yuck!!!!!

 

We have a very insulated house and it gets sticky when it gets towards 50 or above and the skies are much more duller under warm front dirty ridge situations regardless.

 

I hope the frost comes down to Oregon.

Very nice. You're always up in Alaska, I'm jealous. Do you get there via plane or driving? I'm considering driving the AL-Can this summer.
