Best recent comparison is probably January 17-19, 2012.

 

I still like Nov. 1996 as a body double.

Yes, that one is a better match but I guess I just don't consider 1996 that recent anymore.

 

Sad day when the '90s are antiquated  :(

January-July 2012 had a real 1950s throwback vibe to them. That's how our weather used to roll.

That's funny, I didn't really think of the wording. You're right. 22 years isn't that recent.  :lol:  :(

It’s based on the average temperature curve (1981-2010 climatology period) amongst well-cited stations.

The midpoint isn’t necessarily the coldest point, but rather the “middle” of the coldest 3 month period in the climatology.

 

One thing that totally amazed me when I first looked at the Seattle city records is the fact February used to average colder than December.  That seems almost unthinkable now that December has actually become slightly colder than January in the most recent 30 years averages.

A very rare November snow was unfolding in this area in 2010. It actually had been snowing on and off for a couple weeks already, but 11/23 over 8 inches fell at one of the stations here. The next day on the 24th a daily record low of -4 was set, with a high of 22.

 

This was about a week before I moved to town. Ground accumulations briefly hit the 10-11 inch mark. I haven't seen anything close to that in November since that time.

What happened? WSW that ended up being 35 degree rain?

Five years ago today it snowed.

 

Just noticed that Medford's mean temp for December 2013 was 31.4. I need to check that against their historical records, but that seems rather astonishing.

 

Looks like that is the coldest December on record at Medford (1928-present) narrowly beating out 1972 and 1976 (inversion fest).

 

Medford somehow avoided that mid-month torch in 2013. 

 

Looks like that was the coldest month on record at Medford since January 1963 and overall ranks as the as their 5th coldest month on record behind 

 

1) January 1937

2) January 1949

3) January 1963

4) January 1930

5) December 2013

On this day 5 years ago, Eugene/Springfield had a high temp of 19 and a low of -10

 

Tillamook and Hebo on the Oregon coast also hit -10

 

I was in Texas at the time and was entombed in an ice storm there which was part of an amazing CONUS Arctic blast. They called if f*ck Florida week since the only place in the CONUS with somewhat "pleasant" temps was Florida south of the panhandle.

I am sure the Dec 2013 blast was mentioned. So I'll mention exactly how cold that December was at KLMT.

 

The Mean temperature was 22.7 (-6.8). 

Average low = 9.4! (-11.3)  :ph34r: 

Average high = 36.0 (-2.4)

 

Look at that monstrous -11.3 departure for avg low. I don't think I have seen an avg low like that in any other month.

A couple of stations here are claiming the coldest December on record is 2013 in Klamath Falls.

 

During the actual blast, I had 240 consecutive hours in a row below freezing temperature. 

Lots of frozen fog, it looked cool. Too bad I didn't have a very good camera back then. It looked like a different area that month.

 

Below is a look at 10 of the coldest days.

 

12/03 - 32/13

12/04 - 25/5

12/05 - 24/-3

12/06 - 28/9

12/07 - 21/-16

12/08 - 6/-20

12/09 - 14/-17

12/10 - 23/-8

12/11 - 26/-3

12/12 - 29/-1

 

Exactly 20 years before this arctic blast, one of the strongest yet not often talked about tornadoes hit Newberg, OR on 12/08/1993. It was rated an F2. I believe only 5 recorded tornadoes in the PNW are F2/EF2 or higher. That particular one wasn't as destructive as others only because it wasn't that populated where it occurred.

That 6/-20 day is absolutely insane. The COOP station for Klamath Falls didn't even get quite that cold in 1972, 1919, or 1990.

I see that KLMT hit -22 on 12/09/1972, and -16 on 12/11/1972. I think a half dozen lows in December have records from 1972 but overall the 2013 blast was a touch colder.

 

The all time record here is -25 so anything below -10 is pretty impressive. I hit -19 more recently on 01/06/2017 right after my 18.4" snow storm.

Wonder why the WRCC site doesn't have their records?

...MUCH COLDER WEATHER IS EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...

A MAJOR CHANGE WILL OCCUR IN THE LARGE SCALE PATTERN NEAR THE END OF
THIS WEEK...BRINGING MUCH COLDER WEATHER TO WESTERN WASHINGTON OVER
THE WEEKEND.

THE TRANSITION WILL GET UNDERWAY FRIDAY NIGHT AS A COLD FRONT AND
ITS UPPER TROUGH SWING SOUTHEAST FROM THE GULF OF ALASKA ACROSS THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST. IN THE WAKE OF THE COLD FRONT...COLDER AIR WILL
MOVE FROM SOUTHWEST CANADA INTO WESTERN WASHINGTON OVER THE WEEKEND.

WHAT WILL BEGIN AS A COLD RAIN FOR THE LOWLANDS OF WASHINGTON FRIDAY
MAY MIX WITH SOME WET SNOW FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING. AT
THIS POINT IT LOOKS LIKE TEMPERATURES WILL BE TOO WARM FOR SNOW TO
ACCUMULATE AT SEA LEVEL. HOWEVER...HIGHER HILLTOPS MAY SEE SOME
ACCUMULATING SNOWFALL BY SATURDAY MORNING.

WE CAN EXPECT TEMPERATURES TO FALL BELOW FREEZING...AT LEAST DURING
THE NIGHT AND MORNING HOURS...ACROSS MOST OF WESTERN WASHINGTON
BEGINNING SATURDAY NIGHT AND LASTING THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. THERE
IS STILL UNCERTAINTY AS TO JUST HOW MUCH COLD AIR WILL WORK IT'S
WAY DOWN FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA. PEOPLE SHOULD BE READY FOR WEATHER
THAT IS COLD ENOUGH TO CAUSE ICY ROADS...BURST OUTDOOR PIPES...AND
ENDANGER PETS.

On this day 10yrs ago I was starting to not sleep well and was checking NWS Seattle and models constantly as well as the forum. Didn’t have a smart phone yet so I would have to use the desktop which was a bit of a pain and I still worked outside so limited computer access there as well!

...MUCH COLDER WEATHER EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...

A MAJOR CHANGE IN THE WEATHER PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON
FRIDAY AS A STRONG SURFACE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS WESTERN
WASHINGTON. STRONG WINDS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF AREA BUT THE
EXACT TRACK AND STRENGTH OF THE SYSTEM REMAINS UNCERTAIN.
HOWEVER...IT DOES APPEAR AT THIS TIME THAT THE HIGHEST RISK FOR
HIGH WINDS WILL BE ALONG THE WASHINGTON COAST FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND
ALONG THE STRAIT OF JUAN DE FUCA FRIDAY EVENING. THE COMBINATION
OF SNOW AND WIND IN THE PASSES IS ALSO LIKELY TO CAUSE TRAVEL
PROBLEMS BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT.

THE UPPER TROUGH AND COLD FRONT WILL PASS THROUGH THE AREA FRIDAY
NIGHT. IN ITS WAKE...MUCH COLDER AIR POOLED OVER BRITISH COLUMBIA
WILL FILTER DOWN FROM THE NORTH INTO THE WESTERN WASHINGTON
LOWLANDS.

WHAT WILL BEGIN AS A COLD RAIN FOR THE LOWLANDS OF WASHINGTON FRIDAY
MAY MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO SOME WET SNOW LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND
NIGHT. AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS LIKE TEMPERATURES WILL BE TOO WARM
FOR SNOW TO ACCUMULATE AT SEA LEVEL IN MOST THE PUGET SOUND REGION.
HOWEVER...HIGHER HILLTOPS AND POSSIBLY THE HOOD CANAL AREA COULD SEE
SOME ACCUMULATING SNOWFALL BY SATURDAY MORNING.

Widespread 18-24" storm totals followed by widespread lows below 0 including the controversial -24 reading at McMinnville. I regard it as the greatest snowstorm arctic outbreak combo we've seen in the 1900-present era. 

 

Salem had a 28/15 with 17.5" of snow on this date 99 years ago.

That was a great season for windstorms. I remember having to go out to our camper with the propane hot water heater to shower since we were without power for a few days. I also remember it snowing a bit when the power was out.

...COLDEST WEATHER SINCE DECEMBER 1990 EXPECTED DURING THE WEEK AHEAD...

WITH THE INTENSE LOW CENTER MOVING ONSHORE TODAY...IT IS IMPORTANT
NOT TO LOSE SIGHT OF OTHER SIGNIFICANT WEATHER COMING UP DURING
THE NEXT WEEK.

AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT WILL MOVE SOUTH THROUGH WESTERN WASHINGTON ON
SATURDAY...PULLING IN MUCH COLDER AIR IN ITS WAKE. THE FRONT WILL
FIRST ARRIVE OVER THE NORTH INTERIOR EARLY IN THE MORNING...WHERE
FRASER OUTFLOW WINDS WILL PICK UP ON SATURDAY MORNING...BRINGING
IN VERY COLD AND VERY WINDY CONDITIONS. AS THE FRONT SLIPS FURTHER
SOUTH DURING THE DAY WITH UNSETTLED CONDITIONS CONTINUING...SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE FOR MUCH OF THE
LOWLANDS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. WITH THE PASSAGE OF
THE COLD FRONT... DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL ACTUALLY FALL. AS
TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW FREEZING...WET SURFACES COULD QUICKLY
BECOME ICY...SO BE SURE TO WATCH YOUR FOOTING AND AVOID SLIP-AND-
FALL ACCIDENTS.

BY MONDAY...TEMPERATURES WILL GENERALLY REACH DAYTIME HIGHS ONLY IN
THE 20S WITH NIGHTTIME LOWS IN THE TEENS OR LOWER. WITH THE
CONTINUATION OF STRONG NORTHEAST WINDS OVER THE NORTH INTERIOR...WIND
CHILL VALUES SHOULD DROP TO 10 OR 15 BELOW ZERO. WIND CHILLS THIS
LOW CAN CAUSE FROSTBITE TO EXPOSED SKIN IN ABOUT 30 MINUTES. THE
NORTH INTERIOR WILL BE UNDER THE GUN FOR BRUTALLY COLD WIND CHILLS
FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK AHEAD AS COLD AIR CONTINUES TO FUNNEL OUT OF
THE FRASER VALLEY.

OVER THE MOUNTAINS...TEMPERATURES WILL FALL INTO THE TEENS AND
SINGLE DIGITS BY SATURDAY EVENING AND CONTINUE FOR MUCH OF THE
WEEK AHEAD. WIND CHILL VALUES OF 20 BELOW ZERO CAN BE EXPECTED AT
TIMES...WHICH WOULD CAUSE FROSTBITE TO EXPOSED SKIN IN ONLY ABOUT
15-20 MINUTES.

COLD SUB-FREEZING WEATHER SHOULD CONTINUE OVER NEARLY ALL OF
WESTERN WASHINGTON THROUGH NEXT WEEK. IN ADDITION...A WEATHER
SYSTEM ON WEDNESDAY COULD INTERACT WITH THE STUBBORN COLD AIR MASS
TO PRODUCE A RENEWED THREAT OF ACCUMULATING SNOW NEARLY EVERYWHERE
EXCEPT PERHAPS THE IMMEDIATE COASTLINE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT WESTERN WASHINGTON SHOULD EXPERIENCE THE
COLDEST WEATHER IN A COUPLE OF DECADES DURING THE WEEK AHEAD.
PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR AN UNUSUALLY PROLONGED AND INTENSE PERIOD
OF WINTER WEATHER.

TACOMA AREA-ADMIRALTY INLET AREA-HOOD CANAL AREA-
937 PM PST SAT DEC 13 2008

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON PST SUNDAY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SEATTLE HAS ISSUED A WINTER
WEATHER ADVISORY FOR THE LOWLANDS OF THE PUGET SOUND AREA AND THE
NORTHWEST INTERIOR OF WESTERN WASHINGTON...WHICH IS IN EFFECT
UNTIL NOON PST SUNDAY.

THE COMBINATION OF SUB-FREEZING AIR MOVING INTO WESTERN
WASHINGTON FROM THE NORTH AND SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER LOW
WILL PRODUCE 1 TO 3 INCHES OF SNOW TONIGHT ACROSS THE LOWLANDS OF
THE PUGET SOUND REGION AND THE NORTHWEST INTERIOR. ANOTHER 1 TO 2
INCHES OF SNOW WILL FALL SUNDAY MORNING AS SHOWERS DECREASE FROM
THE NORTH.

THE BIGGEST SNOWFALL TOTALS TONIGHT WILL OCCUR IN WESTERN WHATCOM
...SKAGIT...AND SNOHOMISH COUNTIES WHERE SNOW BEGAN EARLIER THIS
EVENING AND TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN BELOW FREEZING. THIS IS ALSO
WHERE SNOW IS MORE LIKELY TO ACCUMULATE ON ROADS. SNOWFALL IN THE
SEATTLE AREA AND OVER THE SOUTH PUGET SOUND REGION WILL LIKELY BE
SOMEWHAT LESS...BUT IT WILL PROBABLY STICK ON ROADS BY MORNING AS
TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW FREEZING.

WITH TEMPERATURES FALLING WELL BELOW FREEZING OVERNIGHT...MOISTURE
ON ROADS AND SIDEWALKS WILL TURN TO ICE. SO PEOPLE SHOULD EXPECT
DIFFICULT TRAVELING CONDITIONS LATER TONIGHT AND SUNDAY
MORNING ALONG WITH SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW WILL CAUSE
TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS AND LIMITED
VISIBILITIES...AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.

...THE LONGEST STREAK OF COLD WEATHER SINCE DECEMBER 1990 IS ON THE
WAY...

WHILE THE POSSIBILITY OF LOWLAND SNOW SHOWERS IS IN THE FORECAST AT
TIMES OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...IT IS THE FRIGIDLY COLD TEMPERATURES
EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT WEEK THAT COULD HAVE THE GREATEST IMPACT ON
WESTERN WASHINGTON.

AN ARCTIC AIR MASS WILL STREAM INTO WESTERN WASHINGTON TONIGHT AND
SUNDAY...IN THE WAKE OF AN ARCTIC FRONT MOVING SOUTH THROUGH THE
AREA THIS AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL FALL BELOW FREEZING ACROSS
WESTERN WASHINGTON TONIGHT WITH MANY SPOTS DIPPING INTO THE LOWER TO
MID 20S. MOST OF THE REGION WILL REMAIN BELOW FREEZING ON SUNDAY
WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS ONLY IN THE MID 20S TO LOWER 30S. IN ADDITION
WINDY CONDITIONS WILL ACCOMPANY THE ARRIVAL OF THE ARCTIC AIR MASS
TONIGHT AND SUNDAY...ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTH INTERIOR OF WESTERN
WASHINGTON.

SNOW SHOWERS TONIGHT AND SUNDAY COULD PRODUCE LOCAL ACCUMULATIONS OF
1 TO 3 INCHES...CREATING SLIPPERY ROADS AND SIDEWALKS. ROADWAYS AND
OTHER SURFACES THAT ARE ALREADY WET WILL QUICKLY BECOME ICY AND
DANGEROUS. THE FRIGID WEATHER COULD BURST OUTDOOR PIPES AND ENDANGER
PETS AS WELL. WIND CHILL IS ANOTHER THING THAT CANNOT BE IGNORED. IN
THE NORTHWEST INTERIOR THE COMBINATION OF SUB-FREEZING TEMPERATURES
AND WINDY CONDITIONS WILL CREATE APPARENT TEMPERATURES NEAR ZERO
DEGREES FAHRENHEIT...LOW ENOUGH TO CAUSE FROSTBITE TO EXPOSED SKIN.

TEMPERATURES WILL DROP FURTHER ON MONDAY...AS VERY COLD AIR
CONTINUES TO FUNNEL THROUGH THE FRASER RIVER VALLEY OF SOUTHERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA AND INTO WESTERN WASHINGTON. BY MONDAY...DAYTIME
HIGHS WILL GENERALLY REACH ONLY THE 20S WITH NIGHTTIME LOWS IN THE
TEENS OR LOWER. THE COLD AIR MASS WILL SIT OVER THE REGION FOR THE
REST OF THE WEEK...WITH MOST ALL OF WESTERN WASHINGTON REMAINING
NEAR OR BELOW FREEZING EVEN DURING THE DAYTIME. THIS WILL LIKELY BE
THE MOST PROLONGED STREAK OF SUB-FREEZING WEATHER SINCE DECEMBER
1990.

IN ADDITION...A WEATHER SYSTEM ON WEDNESDAY COULD INTERACT WITH THE
STUBBORN COLD AIR MASS TO PRODUCE A RENEWED THREAT OF ACCUMULATING
SNOW ACROSS THE WESTERN WASHINGTON LOWLANDS.

OVER THE MOUNTAINS...TEMPERATURES WILL FALL INTO THE TEENS AND
SINGLE DIGITS TONIGHT AND REMAIN VERY COLD FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK
AHEAD. WIND CHILL VALUES OF 20 BELOW ZERO CAN BE EXPECTED AT TIMES
...WHICH WOULD CAUSE FROSTBITE TO EXPOSED SKIN IN ONLY ABOUT 15
MINUTES.

PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR AN UNUSUALLY PROLONGED AND INTENSE PERIOD OF
COLD WINTER WEATHER.
