There is the irony... cool onshore flow and troughs digging in from the north become the trigger for explosion once it gets to a certain point with hot and dry weather. Its quite the quandary for cool weather fans! Getting the cooler weather you want on this side might be really bad for the rest of the region.


More humid southerly or SWRly flow is generally the safest way to go.

I picture you crouched in the bushes outside of Sea Tac watching his plane land through binoculars.

 

 

I should have been a travel agent.   :)

 

We will be up on Orcas Island tomorrow evening.    I can't sneak over to SEA very easily!

Ok. I thought you did it last night too but maybe I saw it wrong.

The most current run is called the 00z because it initializes at 00:00 Zulu or universal time (also known as Greenwich Mean Time). 00z universal time roughly translates to about 5pm our time. This time of year you just need to subtract seven hours to get it to match with our time. I hope this is helpful for you!


You've seen me post here for years. Yeah I did it last night as well but fixed it after I posted. I get too excited and I want to post the information right away that I forget what run it is. You should of known I already knew what 00z meant when I said yesterday the temperatures it showed were for 5pm.

Sounds like you’re describing a GOA trough pattern.

IE: What might be in store for August. Or at least a good portion of it.

I don't think August will be a dry month across the region.

Would be nice, but it feels like there has been a general consensus for cool/wet Augusts here in a handful of years in the recent past. Still waiting for one to actually pan out.

ECMWF has been trending cooler and cloudier for tomorrow... now its not showing full clearing for the Seattle area and a high of only 71 at SEA.

Never said it couldn’t happen.

I try to be a realist. Wouldn’t that make me more of an independent perhaps?

Such a long fall from the days of #icebernboy69. Rampant realism is the third step toward fray floating nihilism...

The persistently low dewpoints the past few summers have been a big problem. The higher humidity in the summers of 2013 and 2014 was much appreciated.

I'd be shocked if it rains anywhere.

Likely a slightly warm and pleasantly dull September and then another October with 20+ days of rain and no clear nights.

This climate blows.

We just had 6 straight days of 90+ highs here at PDX. Well the 00z EURO says get ready for another round of it. Starting on Sunday it's showing 6 straight days of 90+ weather for PDX. Monday gets close to triple digits. Another extended heatwave is on the way.

I can already feel the 69/52 and overcast/light rain type days in mid to late October. Pure autumn perfection!
