I have been up there every year since 2006 I think.  This year will be 2-3 times.  I love it up there!  This time I flew.  I took my mom up there.  She has always wanted to see the northern lights.  She's getting older, so I figured now was a good time. 

 

I drove up there in October of last year (just to the very SE part, Hyder).  I took the alcan up there in 2006, loved it.  I did manage to loose two tires, my windshield and my drivers side window though, all to rocks.

 

I stayed the night at the Arctic Circle campground. 

 

I went for nearly 3 weeks in July, but missed the thunderstorm seasons mainly, which occurs later in July and August.

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.

SEA is now at 7.22 inches of rain... another 1.19 to break the record for March and the month is only half over!

 

Insane rain.

Looks it was nice day to be out of town again. A very nice day here

I'm at 8.6" of rain this month.

There's obviously been some pretty rainy days but there's been enough sunny days to make for a pretty balanced, pleasant feeling month here.

So more meridian based movement?

.. Not sure what you're asking / suggesting, here Fred.
 
Sooner, later. .. Where, when.  ... more, meridional (?), movement of cold. ?
 
I'm basically just saying that more primary coldfor whatever reason, this yearwith not having been [more / better.] able to fix itself north, and south, as well as it might more generally, has instead (basically) drifted, more into the mid-latitudes.  Emphasis still more here, on for whatever reason. And with this, to regions more conducive to this idea, chief example the greater East earlier this season. This with and if not so much recognized, otherwise, down through the Central Pacific:  of course filling in [even] much more, at this point.

 

If this all above is still in line with your question, then yeh. .. Pretty much.

I must admit Wednesday night through the weekend look pretty good right now. Looking like we begin with a legitimate cold air mass with some continental flavor and eventually go into a ridge. Should be some pretty heavy frost later in the week and into the weekend with sunny crisp days. Normally with a pattern like this the lows stay about the same through the clear period while the days get progressively warmer. It's been pretty much forever since we have seen a dry pattern with below normal temps.

Awesome ski weekend in Idaho... today was incredible.   Saturday and Sunday were warm with just passing high clouds and then 10 inches of fresh powder overnight on Sunday.   Got a picture of my son after he fell... but it was such a soft landing that I think he enjoyed it.

Yea, I am sure the Dutch ski slopes have really been suffering this season.

I have some really nice 36F drizzle here this morning.

Bad news up in Seattle this morning. :(

Not super impressed with this troughy period so far. PDX hasn't even fallen below 40. I miss the good old days when it could get cold in March (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006, 2002).

Ya, I only managed to fall to 40 last night.  The low clouds are here, for now, but appear to be breaking up from the SE.

 

I am looking forward to this weekend with cold, crisp nights, and sunny warm days.

I absolutely would. No doubt. Our high of 32 out here on March 2 wasn't too shabby either.

Watching the rest of the country get consistently crushed as we move through March still has me a little jealous though. I'm always down for more cold anomalies. :)

The west as a whole is definitely pretty due for some full latitude troughing.

CPC is showing well above average temps for the entire western US on its 6-10 and 8-14 day outlooks.

Not sure if I buy it though since models seem to be settling on the idea of brief ridging early next week with another trough moving in quickly.

NOAA's warm bias is getting painfully obvious. Sorry, but my backyard was not "near normal" during February. In fact, it was -5.9F below normal, overall.

These two maps are on the same baseline. If this is the game they can play (and get away with) in the US, imagine what they're doing over the rest of the globe.

I have to wonder if the CFS data on WxBell is actually the legitimate truth..

I would love for this to verify... probably won't but maybe the overall pattern will favor ridging out west this summer.    Last summer we were warm without much genuine ridging so maybe we are still due to have a true ridgy summer.

Sort of a "public" "Report" here Phil. ... 

 

 If "perhaps" correct where considering some of what you've suggested. (The operative word here being "if".) And if with granted "all" of what you've pointed to or inferred here being just an opinion.

 

... But so's this view point of mine.

 

Should I list the "objectionable" elements, .. or no. ?

Yes. Look into how NCDC "quality controls" the grid layout based on station distribution. It's laughable, and designed to trim the colder anomalies, while amplifying/expanding the warmer deviations.

Only about 30% of the country is painted in actual red on each map.

 

Maybe only 20% in April and May.

 

You just see it through cold biased eyes.

 

I am just looking at it for clues on the overall pattern and where ridging will be more dominant this summer.   It seems that the models are saying that is out West and that is nice to see.

How can Brett Anderson run a climate-change blog, yet posses zero understanding in the realm of climate modeling? The Canadian baselines are only 0.25-0.4 degreesC behind in average, depending on your chosen 30yr block.

The problem is the modeling has run way warm in the long range (upwards of 1-1.5C over the northern hemisphere on the most recent Canadian NAEFS!).

Only about 30% of the country is painted in actual red on each map.

Maybe only 20% in April and May.

You just see it through cold biased eyes.

I am just looking at it for clues on the overall pattern and where ridging will be more dominant this summer. It seems that the models are saying that is out West and that is nice to see.


I don't think I'm the only one just seeing what I want to see...

I am trying to avoid conflict here lately so I'll leave it at that.

I see the models depicting a ridgy pattern out West this summer.    How far above normal is not what I care about right now.   

 

Tell me how you can look at those maps (which are a consensus of several models) and not see that the general theme is ridging in the West?

 

That is not me seeing something that is not there... its pretty clear that is what it shows.    You just hate the idea of that and therefore will attack the messenger.

I would love for this to verify... probably won't but maybe the overall pattern will favor ridging out west this summer.    Last summer we were warm without much genuine ridging so maybe we are still due to have a true ridgy summer.

Hopefully a beautifully hot and dry summer is in store for us.

You're right... the models show a cold, wet summer.   I am just not seeing it in those maps because Brett mixed up his colors!   

 

Yep... silly me.    You attack when you don't like what you are seeing... and praise even without merit if you do like what the models show.

That would be nice.   Maybe with a thunderstorm/rain event once a week at night to keep it somewhat green.  :)

 

But I like watering in the summer.   Makes it feel like true summer.

I good nocturnal light show would be nice, it has been years since I have seen one. Somehow they totally avoided my area last year.

42/32 here today with 0.03" of drizzle, about as ugly as it gets for mid-march.

Was on my way to work this morning DT sitting at a red light @ Denny and Broad facing east and saw the helo lift up, rotate counterclockwise then nose dive and crash landing on it's side.

 

I'm still shaky from having witnessed that, my thoughts and prayers go out to KOMO

Oh my god! very scary! Tragic day...saw the smoke plume and knew something bad had happened.
