Wet Halloween during a wet October in a wet climate.

 

Normal Halloween during a normal October in a dry year in a drought-prone climate.

This is probably a question for Phil. Looking at the northern hemisphere 500mb pattern, it appears we are going to see some strong blocking in the Scandinavia region. Is this a pattern that is often a precursor to a strat warming event or at least a perturbed PV?


It would aid in a bottom-up wave-2 type perturbation of the vortex, yeah. Less in the upper strat, though.

In -ENSO years it’s a precursor to GOA blocking/cold temps in western Canada..more murky in +ENSO regimes but still better than not.

Eh, I think we topped out around 12-13" around most of Clark County. First on the morning of the 22nd and then again on the 24th. Drifts were locally higher in east county but I don't think any depths exceeded much beyond that on the valley floor.

Last time we had a 20" snow depth was 1/9/1980.


Yeah, that was a mistake on my part. I was thinking monthly total. Peak depth was a little over a foot.

Raining moderately here but it looks like most of the Portland area is dry.

18z ensembles look pretty average for early November.

Perfect night for trick-or-treating. Rain stopped around 5 and it was dry and a little breezy and quite warm. Streets were packed with kids. Very festive. Several houses were having adult parties in the garage and driveway and a couple were handing out jello shots for the parents in addition to candy for the kids. :)

The rain down in Portland looks like it moved out.   The I-90 corridor was in a favorable position this evening with rain to the south... the opposite is usually true.

Awesome!

 

Odd that is was dry most of the day at your house up here and then it was raining there during the evening.   

 

We had light rain and drizzle for much of the day here and then it totally stopped before it got dark.

This just screams wave-2..dateline forcing/IO/ATL subsidence looks like a good bet from Thanksgiving onwards.
