Okay weather experts.  When will we have an extended period of offshore flow for extended warmth or cold?

 

Has anybody notice we haven't had a real stormy winter since 2006?   All the snow events we have had were done from cold onshore flow patterns but we just can't seem to muster enough offshore flow for extended cold/warmth.etc?

 

 

Even the 2008 snow and cold would've been more severe if we had any extended flow reversal as it was predicted to get down to 0F but never happened which would've made the snow cover last well into January!

In Jan 2012 I had 12+ inches of snow with low temps around 3F-6ish F plus with wind chill it was closer to 0F.

We've had MANY bouts of offshore flow since 2006.

December 2013 and February 2014 say hi.

Then there were our numerous warm offshore flow events this spring.

I honestly don't know what kind of alternate reality you are living in.

I live in the Silverton alternate reality.  I can't tell from here when the gorge is having winds but I do want to know when was the last time we had a cooler then normal minimum month?  We've had plenty of cold maximums since 2006 but what about minimums?

I wasn't feeling good at the Feb 2014 either but I do remember the December 2014 event but still before that there wasn't very much but then again I've notice it doesn't take much either to effect temps.

There have been plenty of months with below average minimums since 2006. Probably at least double the amount there were in the eight years prior to 2006.

Sadly I feel that this information may be falling on deaf ears.

I think Doc must have taken you for a ride in the DeLorean time machine, since the rest of us don't remember that one! LOL

 

JK, I know you meant December 2013.

I see, this is Kyle, or Triforce, or Lucifer Weather, or a whole host of other people who are actually the same person.
