The best I can do! TONS of snow coming for BC as the firehose of moisture is pointed at them as a very cold air mass 850s ~-20c to -28c is in place.

So as I read this, somewhere around 40+" near Big White ski resort, an hour East of Kelowna Canada about 5500 ft up?

Ended October with eight freezes, and 12 mornings with at least some frost (sub-35). The most I can ever remember seeing for that month.

 

Average temperature ended up just a hair below 50. Easily the coldest October I have ever personally witnessed, which makes sense since the last one even approaching anything this cold was in the fall before I was born (1985).

Your grandfather (TyCobbLibido) was saying the same thing at the end of October 1949. 😏

Crap, Salem only hit 26 on 10/31/06. I must issue a correction. It is the coldest Halloween morning at SLE since 2002!


I’ll dispel the fear over 2002 later, but interestingly enough the severe weather/QLCS we had last night was the first late Oct/early Nov event here since..2002. Lol. Not to mention, 2002 was also the last year with a South Pole SSW and early/dynamic FW as well. Those are pretty rare down south.

But, no need to fret..in reality, the only thing 2002 has going for it is the fantastic QBO alignment. But that doesn’t predict what happens regionally by itself. We can’t repeat the mid-latitude wavetrain of 2002, even with an El Niño this year, because solar maximum in conjunction with the cold strat hangover from the 1990s in 2002 produces a non-homogenous NAM/NPO. So it’s a non-starter.

Something is up with the pattern this year, man.

Not sure how relevant this is to the discussion, but never in recorded history has a “severe” drought established here in 10 weeks, then get completely erased in 2 weeks during one of the driest months of year climatologically (October). There’s no precedent for it at all.

This post makes Phil VERY angry.


Grrrr!!

I look at that list and see a combination of ENSO and early-season WHEM MJO transits (phase 8/1 in October is actually cold west/warm east, hence 57/58, 68/69, 72/73, etc).

That shows Whatcom County getting some, so no complaints here.


It's called clown range for a reason.

Day 15 EPS.  Nice GOA ridge signal, but I'm hoping we can do away with so much trough digging into the SW.  The control on the 0z showed us getting blasted so it's in the realm of possibility.

Phew...November and the first half of December was just a bad split flow nightmare and we could still have a November 1985 redux! It was such a bad nightmare you guys! Puppies and Koalas were even injured...It was so sad!
