I know we just had a large geomagnetic storm, but the southwest expansion of the Arctic/Greenland cold pool into west-central Canada (down into the Alberta-BC-Alaska area) just screams solar minimum. It’s one of the cornerstones of low solar autumns, really.

Where-as solar maximum years love to have a large vortex in the GOA with the cold pool displaced or consolidated towards Greenland/northwest Eurasia.

 

It was 2011 into 2012 there was a large GOA vortex, wasn't there?

I don't think any of those had a drier 4.5 month stretch for the region than what we've seen the past 4.5 months.


Vancouver had 1.29" from July to October 1952, which is about equal to what we've seen here locally. Then we followed it up with just 1.05" in November (and then our wettest January on record).

Yep...was dry and partly cloudy at home when I left at 3am, and raining when driving past North Bend this morning a little after 4am.

Thick ice in the northwest passage has apparently been sinking yachts off Baffin Island.

Yesterday night, the French-flagged yacht "Anahita", an aluminum Ovni 345, sank in Ballot Strait of the Northwest Passage. The disaster occurred in Depot Bay, just east of Bellot Strait. According to initial information, the ship was trapped by drifting sea ice from which it could not escape.

The Anahita, like about a dozen other yachts, was on its way east-west through the Northwest Passage. This summer, however, the ice in the Arctic is persistent. Unlike in previous years, so far there has not been a clear path. So the crews had no choice but to practice patience. Or turn around.

That’s exactly what the Canadian authorities have urged all crews in recent days. It is not foreseeable that the passage would open at all this year. On the contrary, the current ice situation for yachts is dangerous. The crews should either move their ships back south or look for a safe hibernation port in Baffin Bay or Greenland.

With college football tomorrow it'll probly be about the same but we shall see. Very pleasant 57F with a clear Willamette Valley. Getting down into the 40s is looking pretty likely indeed.

PDX failed to make a top 5 warm August (ended up 6th or 7th I believe). Cold month.

August ended up +2.5F here. Haven’t had time to confirm but I’m pretty sure that was good enough for the warmest July/ August combo in history. (Since 1913).
