April 2019 Weather Discussion in the PNW


Recommended Posts

Your point is all over the place.   

 

There is almost always an extended stretch of sunny, dry weather in late April or May at some point.   And usually periods of rainy weather as well.

 

Today was very close to normal.   The last 6 years have NOTHING to do with your inability to handle a normal late April day.    If you cannot handle doing exercise on a normal day then that is your problem... not nature's problem.   

 

You are mixing all kinds of things together... but the only unusual aspect about today was the extraordinarily low dewpoints which actually makes it feel a little cooler than it would otherwise.   ;)

Oh I was perfectly able to exercise today. I even did some core and upper body workouts after I cooled off. I'm in good shape.

And this extended stretch might be looked at a bit more normally if only it wasn't after such an event already happening in March and so many interspread throughout the past 6 years.

I have to screenshot my photos otherwise they post sideways

“Gorge”ous evening out at the Gorge White House near Hood River.

Whew!

 

Thanks for the thrilling discussion about how miserable this normal late April day was... and how you were on the verge of heat exhaustion immediately upon walking out the door.   And how the weather years ago made today feel even warmer.     :lol:

That's great news. That also really is strange going off of the past 6 years. Fingers crossed for at least normal.

April will go down as the 11th time in 12 months that OLM has recorded below normal precip.

 

 

SEA ended up well above normal... so did BLI.  

 

And the foothills and Cascades too.

Never said that. You're all over the place.

But I did get a good quote to re-post when its 99 degrees in July.   ;)

Duh. What's your point? Haven't you already pointed this out a few times?

 

And pretty much the entire region is well below normal for the past 12 months, so it's not like the OLM fact is completely out of left field.

Had to save this one for posterity.

 

You posted something almost exactly the same as this last April on a day when it was 66 degrees.   And I had to bring up again several times last summer when it was actually very hot.

 

I might have to do the same with this post... from a day that was probably in the upper 60s in your area with a dewpoint in the teens and that unbelievable late April sun angle here on the equator.     :lol:

 

Don't be mean :(

 

People tolerate your near constant complaining about the rain and overcast (in the winter) which is also climo, I might add, so there's really no need to do a 180 and start belittling people complaining about the opposite (whether it is climo or not).

You know it's my first summer here on this forum- I've only heard rumors of the happenings that occur when the summer ridge begins to loom.

I don't complain about rain much at all. I understand climo here. This is totally inaccurate.

I don’t recall you complaining about rain much last winter, maybe because there wasn’t much rain to complain about anyway (there might have been in North Bend, however).

 

Clouds and rain in winter is one thing. A two week stretch of nearly constant overcast in April is an entirely different thing. The latter actually isn’t climo.

Today might seem frigid by later next week if the ECMWF is right...

This is such BULLSHIT Tim and you know it. 

 

Don't @ me bro

 

 

Not bullshit in any way.

 

Show me examples in the last 6 months.   Or go back to Nov-Mar of last winter.   Or the winter before that.   Reporting on rain is not complaining.   Rain happens all the time... this is a weather forum.   

 

I do remember complaining about a lack of rain back in February and March.    I did not complain once about rain about rain before that... it was perfectly normal here in terms of total rain and days with rain.   

 

The only time I ever complain now are when things stray far from normal (even Jared agrees with this).   For example... I said that February was too cold... early April was too wet.    But I also said many times that both are going to happen at times and it is what it is.

Yeah... except that I don't complain about rain.   The only time I might complain at all is when it strays too far from climo either way.   That is a fact.   And even that is pointless.

Literally the same thing every single year... its always going to be a bad fire season.   Makes for good click bait in early May.

 

This year they say its been too wet... last year it was too dry.    Either way... the forecast is always the same and its always bad.   Even though they have no idea what the overall pattern will be like in July or August.   :rolleyes:

Especially ridiculous when you consider how benign the wildfire season ended up being in 2017 and 2018.

Wait, 2017 and 2018 were benign fire seasons?

 

2017 had some of the most impact in terms of urban areas in the NW with the amount of smoke. 2018 was horrible in Central Oregon where there were significant agricultural impacts and in Southern Oregon where the Chetco region burned for the second year in a row. Not to mention some of the worst smoke impact in urban locations in a long while. This isn't even taking into count Northern California's horrific seasons.
