What a nasty pattern we look to be stuck in the next several days. Although maybe it’s a good thing we are getting the payback from the cold out of the way now rather than later. Clean slate...

I'm sure it goes back to 50-55 and rain in April. Your kind of weather.  :P

You must have missed my hiking pics! Although fortunately it was cooler out that way.

Crazy warm evening... 64 at SEA and 63 in North Bend.   That is a pretty normal late evening in the summer.

 

62 here and breezy here so I did a little experiment.   I broke off a chunk of the remaining snowbank at the end of the driveway about the size of a football and set in the middle of the driveway about 2 hours ago.   Just checked and its unchanged.    The road was wet around the edges of the snowbank.   

 

But it appears that even 62 degrees and breezy does not melt snow sitting exposed in the middle of the driveway at night.   Its actually still hard and icy.   So strange.   

 

I set another chunk in the middle of the driveway this afternoon in the sun and it disappeared almost immediately.

I see it all the time in the summer outside ice rinks.

I don’t remember seeing any but I wasn’t checking for them that frequently either.

I'm fine with that. No long dry spells, no inane arctic temperatures. Bring on some normal spring weather. Couple days of showers, couple days of sun, repeat.


2018 in Portland had 27.30" rainfall, which is the 8th driest year on record and 8.73" below normal

Seems we had quite a few south of the border but I never took a count.

But the 00Z FV3 just shows a trough passing to the south from the Tuesday into Thursday and then builds a big ridge again... much like we have now.

 

What if that happens?     Then your statement is wrong.    :huh:

ECMWF is definitely more troughy next week... rain looks pretty sparse though.

 

There is a little mountain snow as well... and more to the south.

 

Total snow over the next 10 days...

So it’s showing 61F for me at midnight. A good 8-10 degrees warmer than a lot of places. That East wind is insane.

SEA is one of the warmer spot at midnight is still 63F with16-17mph E wind gusting 28-30mph.

For comparison, OLM is 42F and calm.

Lol.
