Pattern still looks like splitsville thru day 7/8


I think there could be a week of meaningful precipitation and storminess before the next dry/blocky stretch gets going. And when it gets going..lots of folks are gonna freeze.

I’m getting pumped up for some insane blocking from the winter solstice to late Jan/early Feb. Love the signs I’m seeing..downward propagating -U anoms within the NAM domain in conjunction with a well-timed EHEM MJO & AAM transfer(s). All preceded by this +EAMT/Aleutian Low regime for additional wave-1 forcing.

Watch the EPO and AO during the last 10 days of December into January. ☃️

42 and cloudy. Snowed lightly for about 30 minutes this morning but I didn’t stay up watching for long it since it was 38-40 degree snow. Ground is still dry so even if it was cold enough there hasn’t been much precip in my area.

Yeah we only had about a tenth of an inch of precip here. Ground is wet, but still mostly frozen. One of the nice things about our soil up here though is that it drains very well. Doesn't ever get super muddy.

Looking forward to what looks like at this point a more active weather pattern as we head into December. Maybe we will get really wet through the first half of the month, then we get cold and snowy in the second half.

Going to end up the coldest year at Salem probably since at least 2012. If they can end up with a -0.9 departure or lower for December it would be their first below average annual mean since 2011...Seems like a bit of a long shot, but with inversions who knows.

I’m getting pumped up for some insane blocking from the winter solstice to late Jan/early Feb. Love the signs I’m seeing..downward propagating -U anoms within the NAM domain in conjunction with a well-timed EHEM MJO & AAM transfer(s). All preceded by this +EAMT/Aleutian Low regime for additional wave-1 forcing.
Watch the EPO and AO during the last 10 days of December into January. ☃

AO tends to be kind of meaningless for the west. Mixed results with that signal.

All told, ended up with a solid dusting last night. Calling it 0.1" might be a stretch, even though there was probably that much on some surfaces. But it was a fun little event with the snow in the air and the wind, and a great way to kick off the winter season

Pattern still looks like splitsville thru day 7/8

 

 

12Z ECMWF splits the late week trough more than previous runs as well.   A bit drier as a result... and it was not really that wet on previous runs.  

 

Average opening date at Snoqualmie Summit is December 7th... no chance of that this year.

Flurries mixing in with rain downtown PDX. Kind of a nice surprise, figured it would be all rain.

Well sh*t... the 12Z ECMWF could not be much worse for mountain snow.   

 

A consolidated jet pattern just never gets here... its always in the 7-10 day range and then vanishes.    This run does not even tease us.

I’m getting pumped up for some insane blocking from the winter solstice to late Jan/early Feb. Love the signs I’m seeing..downward propagating -U anoms within the NAM domain in conjunction with a well-timed EHEM MJO & AAM transfer(s). All preceded by this +EAMT/Aleutian Low regime for additional wave-1 forcing.

Watch the EPO and AO during the last 10 days of December into January. ☃️


Bottom line how does it effect the pnw

Could very well stay split flow most of winter. We've been doomed with this before.

The 00Z EPS actually showed a decent mountain snow pattern in the 10-15 day period with zonal flow eventually carving out a trough across most of the CONUS.    Hopefully it still shows that on the 12Z run.

40F in Springfield. There’s no way this isn’t going to be a dud winter at this point. Classic shitt niño patterns. Glad I got nailed last winter because it’s not going to happen here for a while. We are due for a stretch of shitt.

Haven’t had a Dec-Jan event here of more than 6” or so since I moved to Oregon IIRC. Feb has so often been the big winner.

Still think I'm going to score this winter, just not this time. For openers, I'm in a favored location. Odds are I'll get the goods in some event where Seattle and points south get shafted. If Seattle's getting dumped on, it tends to be just dry and windy here. Conversely, it's easily possible Seattle to be in the low forties and getting rain while Whatcom County is solidly below freezing and getting a good snowstorm.

It does seem like the EPS has been much more consistent than the operational.  And it has been consistent with the timing of that too.

What was cascade pack like in 2004-2005? I at least think there should be some snow in the PNW, just nothing is screaming big wildfire season next summer.
