Hard to tell amidst the cancel/uncancel winter white noise.

Starting to feel like we might see something in the next two weeks


When is the 1950 storm coming that you kept talking about?

2011 beat its a**.


Highs were similar in that stretch. Definitely milder lows in 2011 though.

That’s a year I wouldn’t mind following as an analog. With colder lows!!

I've been out in the green, green lawn picking acronyms in an effort to make that happen for you.

January of 2017 has been warmer and drier than January of 2011 in this area.

I like the 18z and I'm not sure how anyone could be disheartened by it, besides this weekend's possibilities which have always looked borderline.

 

I'm starting to think people on here don't get excited unless models show 5+ inches and mid-20s for temps. Anything less seems to be deemed a waste of our time.

 

I for one am very much looking forward to the upcoming Nina pattern... low snow levels, gobs of mountain snow, fairly active weather... Any of that beats the god awful first half of January we just went through.

 

You make it sound like its been dry and quiet all month so far.

 

There have only been 4 totally dry days at SEA this month and precipitation is running above normal.   And the mountains were absolutely buried in heavy snow last week.

Well we have had a lot more than 4 totally dry days down here. So parts of the NW are certainly in that upper echelon category for warm Januaries.

I'm really happy to see the pattern flipping to cooler and wetter than normal. It'll be so awesome to see the snowpack finally start to build again.

Feels so weird that the coast range will start seeing snow again in the coming days with the way it feels outside.

Dry and warm generally have an inverse relationship this time of year.

To bad statman is taking a hiatus. I’m guessing he has them memorized.

It’s funny, last January didn’t get a fraction of the hype leading up to it that this one did, and PDX pulled off a top 10 cold one.

 

There were at least a couple of us predicting a cold January for the West/PNW, though.

If you remember... in the spring of 2016 I was looking at 1942-43 as analog and said it could be an epic January in 2017.    It was.   But for the Portland area and not Seattle.    ;)

 

I was harping on the epic January drumbeat for most of 2016.

Yes... and its been wet from Seattle to Bellingham.

 

I am not saying its been crazy but it has not been as dead up here as he implied.   There has been rain on 75% of the days and the mountains were buried in snow last week.    That is all.

Where do we find the charts for PDX? Weather.us?

Book it.

Sure. But it clearly hasn't been an active pattern for the most part, as most of the region is running below normal for precip.
