  1. January 1937 was brutal out here. Average temp for the month was below zero with a -0.7F mean temp and it only got above freezing on one day with a high for the month of 33 degrees. 26 days were below zero, 9 of those days were below -20F. The month ended up with a -26F departure which is absolutely incredible.
  2. I agree. Definitely a bit more sunshine than Portland but not as much as you would think for the Intermountain West. Missoula is even worse.
  3. Congrats! Let me know if I can answer any questions for you!
  4. New cases continue to climb here with another new record high with 333 new cases today. Current hospitalizations are also at a new high now as well. State health officials are concerned which is saying something. Seeing a large increase of new cases linked to the schools reopening so I wouldn't be surprised if we see some rollbacks coming soon.
  5. Besides possibly some smoke again I don't think you have anything to worry about.
  6. I wouldn't be so sure...Those massive 100k+ acre fires don't just go out even with an inch or two of rainfall. It's a long process and they will likely not be done with smoldering/smoking next week when that stagnant and possibly easterly flow returns. Recent trends have also been pushing the eastern trough ever so slightly further west as well so definitely something to keep an eye on.
  7. One of the most ugly and destructive months in the NW that I can remember.
  8. Been pretty torchy out here. Likely to be the warmest Sept since 2012. If this is some new shift in the pattern I don't like it so far.
  9. Most new cases to date here in Montana today with 293. Besides mask wearing, you wouldn't know that we are still in the middle of a pandemic here.
  10. It's honestly kind of scary to think about it. We're definitely playing with fire (pun intended) every year in the early Fall relying on those rains to come before the winds kick up.
  11. Lightning holdover fires are a thing as well that a lot of people overlook. Lightning holdover was the official cause of our Bridger fire which was started by a big, wet thunderstorm that passed through here on August 26th but the fire didn't actually begin until Sept. 5th. Apparently the storm caused some tree/shrub to ember without smoking or a flame until the winds kicked up on the 5th. It then blew up and burned 8k acres and 28 homes in 24 hours sadly.
  12. That's crazy. Hope you're staying inside in that! 509 at PDX right now which is once again off the charts bad.
  13. AQI is currently only 15 here so it's staying elevated so far. The sky definitely turned white this afternoon though. Looks like we're in it for the long haul out here but It could be so much worse.
  14. 1/16th of a mile VIS and LIFR conditions for over 26 consecutive hours now at PDX. That's cra cra. No one is going in or out this morning with those conditions.
