New Year, same weather? The countdown is on to the first cherry blossoms. Sun angles are increasing... winter is fading. Ok, I guess Winter is still here another couple months, but the question will remain if we will get cold/snowy weather or lots of cold rain.

Reasonable chance this will be the best January of the century so far.  This is especially true for the Puget Sound region since Portland set a fairly high bar for themselves last winter.

It's definitely off to a strong start. Luckily this is a leap year so there's 34 days in the month.

If you want to realize how terrible the last 55 Januaries have been overall...The record lows at Silverton from January 17-22 are all over 20 degrees. They started keeping records in 1962. 

 

What is even more sad...

 

January records lows:

 

1962-84: 28

1985-2017: 3 

 

And the three since 1984 were all super low hanging fruit records. Back to back 19's in 2007 and a 20 in 2008...And that is it...

I heard the Seahawks lost.

 

I don't care about football, but this is a good thing. I still remember the year they had the parade downtown (because I work in Seattle), it was bone cold with no snow!! 

 

Ever since they went to the superbowl our winters have sucked. =)

0z ECMWF Day 10. Just a few notches here, a few there, a few over thatta way, a few back over towards this way, some more over the other direction, and several edging the other way prior to the original direction they were moving. Almost there!

Probably little if any snowfall until we move into a warmer pattern. These Arctic blasts are squashing everything out into the Atlantic.

You guys have a much easier time getting moisture into play during cold Arctic airmasses than we do.

Some people on here get very giddy about it dropping a little below 32 at night.  :)

 

I was watching some New Years Eve celebrations on TV last night... it was 12 degrees in Nashville while Keith Urban was performing.  :)
