Euro looks pretty wet the rest of the month. This would put PDX over 7 inches for January. Good to see!

We have a pretty solid window of opportunity coming up in early Feb. Some promising model runs in that time frame and the EPS teleconnection forecasts continue to trend better. Finally a signal for some -WPO which is something that has been lacking this winter, and the PNA goes negative again.


Early Feb might be rushing it a bit.

It's been very persistently wet and cloudy around Portland. I had measurable rain every day December 31-January 19 and PDX is not far behind at 18/20 with the other two days seeing a trace. The rain has just been very light for the most part.


The first 20 days of this year have been pretty wet but that's pocket change compared to having the two driest years ever back to back.

It's basically been a drier version of January 1953, that month also had some arctic air make it down to the border, albeit not as intensely.

Upside to that is the cold in AK actually has been impressive for a change. Anchorage is posting a -14 departure right now and is looking at another extended stretch of deep cold. If the month ended today it would be their coldest January on record and 2nd coldest month overall.


How is Alaskan cold an “upside”?

That’s terrible for you guys unless there’s large scale forcing to dislodge it like 1989.

It could be sunny for 150 days in a row... and Tim would be scolding people for enjoying the first wet day and invoking an 0.08” rainfall surplus @ SEA as the reason.

Likewise... it could be 100*F and sunny every day all summer and he would be happy as a clam.

Not true.

I was cheering for rain after only a couple dry weeks last March.

And 100 and sunny would be miserable. 75-85 is the sweet spot in the summer. :)

Waiting for it to finish... looks about like the 00Z run at 336 hours.  

 

A little bit warmer and more zonal though.

12Z EPS at day 15... potential is there but not a robust as the 00Z run.

 

Running the loop... it appears that the cold is mostly moving east at this time and ridging is trying to build back in from the SW.

Took a drive to Silver Lake park a couple hours ago. It's still a winter wonderland over there. If anyone feels like going on a scenic drive through north Whatcom county I highly recommend taking S Pass Rd from Everson to Silver Lake.  https://imgur.com/a/8XLtc3R

Ya I was watching that this morning and was thinking that the storms out in the pacific the last week or so have all looked really beautiful as they have swung into the NW. A lot of low pressures and good rotations.

The insane +AAM deposition in the tropics this month is something you’d expect to see in developing or well-established strong El Niño regimes. In this case I presume the +IOD compensated for the Pacific in maintaining the E-IO subsidence/dual uplift centers in the WPAC/W-IO. Interesting how there are different external conduits into ENSO modes..really is true that ENSOs come in many different flavors and two ENSOs with the exact same ONI value can have wildly different purpose/meaning and characteristics.

Note the increasing amplitude and focus of the WWBs as the seasonal cycle has rendered the warm pool more dominant over the +IOD.

As easterlies(associated w/ -QBO) continue to descend through the spring/summer, and the tropical tropopause rises/cools over the Pacific, it may act to narrow/intensify the HC/ITCZ over the EPAC and finally complete the move into El Niño that was blocked last year by mature +QBO/feedback by ill-times OKW returns (heart of boreal summer during +PMM).

The first 20 days of this year have been pretty wet but that's pocket change compared to having the two driest years ever back to back.

 

Even with the dry last two years, the 2010s were a wet decade overall with only 2013, 2018, and 2019 being drier than average. Which included four consecutive wet years between 2014-17.

But..the one wrinkle is the super-PV in the stratosphere and the potential for a dynamic final warming (similar effects to a SSW). This could, in theory, produce enough high amplitude intraseasonal activity (MJO et al) to destructively interfere with the climatologically-favored lower frequency progression.

The “spring barrier” is real. Definitely not making a definitive ENSO call until the stratosphere/NAM/RWB-MJO structures are sorted out for the F/M/A timeframe.

Really refreshingly nice to see that region cold again actually. It's literally been years (March 2017 and then spring 2013 prior to that) since they had any meaningful cold anomalies at any time of the year. Been a truly runaway stretch of unprecedented warmth up there. 

 

And historically, Alaskan cold and good PNW winter weather are not mutually exclusive.

It either means that we are entering a multi year super Niño for the ages, or it might snow in February. Still trying to decode it.

I’m hoping we can score again in February but I’ve already seen 1.5” of snow which is better than several dud years I can remember. Olympia to Seattle May not have done well but Seattle north did really well this January.

The dry seasons have been much longer and hotter as well.

If we’re lucky PDX will have an above average rainfall month as well. We sadly missed out on the AR in December (among other things).

The dry seasons have been much longer and hotter as well.
2014 and 2015 were a couple of the worst snowpack years on record for Oregon, despite a ton of rain during the winter.

 

2015 was one of my wettest thunderstorm seasons. 2 out of every 3 cells did minor flooding in some part of town.

Last year was kind of interesting in that it proved how refrigerated things can stay on the Basin/Gorge even well into March, if the conditions are right.

Even with the dry last two years, the 2010s were a wet decade overall with only 2013, 2018, and 2019 being drier than average. Which included four consecutive wet years between 2014-17.

 

I can support that statement on a wet decade, 2000-2009 was less snowy and rainy in much of southern OR than 2010-2019.

 

Maybe a touch warmer than the 2000's but not the warmest decade ever.

Hey Dewey xm radio channel 27 has been playing rush all day. I've had it cranked all day. That band helped me get through some rough times.
