It's been cancelled up here in Whatcom County as well. Overall a disappointing no-show. Should make for some happy New Year's revelers who get to see their scheduled fireworks. We shall see if Friday's windstorm materializes.

I was outside earlier and it has some pretty decent gusts but overall, it look to be short lived. Things have really died now now, was kinda hoping for more.

Also, drop the climate change stuff. Use other threads to dive deep into why everyone but you is wrong. It’s a model and observation thread. It’s one thing to point out the warming factors or do a one liner response to that.

Looks more and more likely that there could be a decent windstorm for Seattle and areas northward on Friday. GFS shows gusts of 45 kts or so in Seattle proper. Now, would I like that to move south? Erm, yes.

65 kts up this way, if models are to be believed.

Wish I could go up there this weekend but I'm busy :(

 

Ah, something'll happen down here eventually. Looks to be another chance at a wind event for BC sometime next week too if one believes the GFS.

We shall see what happens; it's hardly a sure thing at this point. Could easily head south. Or further north, Or fizzle entirely.

Wind predictions fizzle as much as snow predictions unfortunately.

From Space Needle, "Due to high winds, we are unable to proceed with the fireworks display. However, there will be a 12 minute musically-choreographed light show to help celebrate the arrival of 2020."

 

 

From Space Needle, "We will attempt to proceed with the fireworks display at 2:00am on January 1, if the winds subside to a sustained speed of less than 25mph and with gusts at speeds less than 30mph."

Him/her and 97% of the world's scientists...

I'll believe NASA before randos on the internet who are constantly complaining about never seeing snow events like from the past. You all see the irony in this, right?


Well, 97% of the worlds scientists agree humans are contributing to climate change. The significance of that contribution is very much debatable (to argue otherwise renders one an anti-science propagandist).

The alarmist end-of-the-world bullshït derived from garbage climate models parameterized and tuned to oblivion should not be taken seriously. There’s no indication that the climate system behaves in such a way as to perpetually amplify perturbation(s) to the thermal/radiative budget.

Yes. Looked like 60mph+ gusts widespread for B.C. on the euro map I saw. Likely a damaging windstorm here. Luckily December’s big blow last year cleared out hundreds of weaker trees locally.

Okay, I'll bite. Notice how stable things have been in the last, oh, 6,000 years or so. You know, the ones that have represented all the time human civilization (which depends on stability) has existed. But hey, let's not worry about destabilizing that, it might cause some people political inconvenience.

 

Mother Nature will most assuredly plunge us into another ice age in the future.  It's all cyclical.

It'll cost at least $20K to move to ME or NH, and then if what you said about property tax there is true, in 6 years or so there goes another $20K. Something's gotta be done to cut carbon emissions, and residential heating is a big part of it. And New England has the highest heating costs outside of Alaska; don't think you'll get lower utility bills by moving there.

 

I do share your skepticism about tearing out dams; as bad as the dams are, hydro is carbon-free power.

That’s just the last straw, there are a lot of other things that I have become disenchanted with.  I know it will be expensive to live in New England.  When all is said and done, we may very well weigh it all out and decide to stay put.  I’m just excited that my wife is open to the idea!

Odd. We had pretty solid wind throughout the evening, night and early morning in the north part of the county. Usually my location misses out on south winds, but the lights flickered all night and I was hunting down recycling bins up the street around 5:30 this morning.
