June 2019 Weather Discussion in the PNW


Recommended Posts

Always about you. I would have posted that even if you were still in the Alps somewhere.

 

 

I know. There were little jabs at the cold freaks sprinkled throughout here the entire time I was gone. Pretty sad how much we occupy your head space.

 

Also sad you don’t have the ability to simply enjoy the weather you like without turning it into the ridiculous, anxiety ridden PR campaign you have going here 24/7.

The only rivalry that matches the Phil-Tim rivalry...the Tim-Jesse rivalry!

Sun is just starting to come out here as of 12:30pm. Up to 61 degrees.

September rainfall 0.00” 80+ -15 85+ -3 90+ -1 hottest day-97

That is 100% accurate. :)

You have no idea what I enjoy. Stop worrying about me and taking everything so personally. You are exhausting.

 

You could have just taken the ensemble map post as more information... but not you.

 

And here we are... so nice to have you back!

Not only does the 12Z ECMWF only show a little rain... its also very ridgy in the 8-10 day period. It does not even look like a variable pattern at that point... there is no trough lurking to the west.

There actually is a ULL to the N/NW that will drop in after D10 (probably D12-13) but the model is likely having feedback problems upstream, hence the moat of high heights cloaking it locally. This should resolve, but overall it’s not a stagnant pattern until a more amplified waveform initiates around the solstice.

 

I think I mentioned this a few weeks ago, but the intraseasonal component of the tropical forcing will propagate to the WPAC during the second half of this month, and/or into early July, which will (initially) increase the heatwave risk during that timeframe. It stands out clearly to me.

 

But with the SIOD-IPWP curve inverted relative to recent years, I’m also thinking a legitimate cool pattern could follow the heatwave this time, once convection leaves the WPAC and that GOA vortex gets cranking. Whenever that ends up happening (timing is hard to pin down right now) but there should be a decent 10-15 day cool/troughy stretch in the midsummer period this year, after the heatwave immediately preceding it.

I’m sure it’s very nice having me back. You absolutely live for this kind of back and forth. The only mistake anyone ever makes here is trying to match your infinite ability to perpetuate it. :lol:

Ironic. If this place ever deviated from being completely centered around your opinion I think you would have some sort of panic attack. VERY important to you, as illustrated by thousands and thousands of posts.

To sum it up:

 

Variability until mid/late June, then a heatwave pattern as forcing propagates over the WPAC, then a crash into a 2011-ish pattern for a few weeks.

 

Analogs are indicative of another heatwave in mid/late August, but I can’t see that far ahead dynamically yet.

You have spent all day moaning about your hurt feelings related to an ensemble mean map. Seems logical. :)

It does suck that there is nowhere to talk about/track one of my passions online without being constantly harassed. But yeah should definitely be used to it by now.

I can't see anything 2011-like coming this summer. But mid-July through September of 2011 was just about complete perfection here in my opinion.

No one is harassing you.   I did not even offer an opinion or say anything about your post.   That is just being paranoid.   As usual.

This post is about Jesse.   I have no interest in tracking weather.

 

The 12Z EPS agrees with the operational run at day 10.    This is a personal attack on Jesse.   Its all about him.    :wub:

This post is not about Jesse.    I attacked him viciously in the previous post.

 

The 12Z EPS shows more zonal flow towards the end of the run.   No signs of any heat.

If you didn’t have access to any images after D10, in your mind, could you run that pattern forward based on pattern recognition? If so, how do you think it would evolve?

 

That’s the question I ask myself before I look further into a model run or an ensemble mean (aside from whatever physical parameters/external forcings might be affecting the model).

 

I think if you and I ever met in person, most of our misunderstandings with respect to our interpretations of ensemble means would be remedied (I’m not saying that I disagree with your above take, Tim..I think in this case your interpretation is correct).

Not as a background state. It would be much shorter in duration.

 

But there are signs of some highly anomalous intraseasonal cycles in the middle latitude wavetrains coming up after the solstice. Not a certainty of course, and we’ll need to watch the wavenumber and frequency in the VP200 anomalies first, but the idea of midsummer whiplash is growing on me.

 

Heatwave to onshore onslaught? Time will tell.

For M/J/J.

 

Generally, phase 4-5-6 (E-IO) MJOs assuming the W-1 structure teleconnect to cooler regimes in the PNW.

 

Phase 7-8-1 (WPAC/WHEM) MJOs assuming the W-1 structure teleconnect to warmer regimes. The others are transitional.

So you have to wonder if some of the modeled warmth during week 2 is overzealous if not flat out wrong.

 

Looking over past cases of EHEM MJOs recycling during monsoonal inception, since 1998 there are zero cases where the west was ridgy before forcing reached the WPAC, but every single case that wasn’t La Niña transitioned to warm/ridgy once the wave reached the WPAC ~ 3 weeks later.

 

If I were betting, I’d lean variable with a cool lean until it reaches the WPAC in late June, then go hot for a week or two.

Annoying bias of ECMWF... it paints high clouds way too thick most of the time.   

  

Its projected temps are really the only way to judge the true opacity its assuming when looking more than a few hours ahead.  For the last several runs... I could tell by its projected temps for today that the high cloud band it was showing would actually be quite thin.

 

Here is what it showed for 2 p.m.

A 2011-like pattern sounds lovely, but I can't help but think your desire to troll Tim is clouding your judgement. Seems like every time you've forecast a cool period the last several warm seasons the best case scenario is that we get a brief period where we cool down to average or a touch below before quickly returning to torching.

 

My guess is we torch yet again this summer in typical 2013 to present fashion. I hope I'm wrong but predicting otherwise feels like a "too clever by half" move.

Had a handful of rumbles from a vicinity storm a couple hours ago. Still nothing overly exciting during this stretch.

I’m not trolling this time. Not in the mood today.

 

A 2011-like pattern that lasts for 10-15 days is nothing extraordinary, when you think about it. The last several years have given us all a warped perception of reality.

2011 was more of a cool spring than a cool summer anyway. The summer was essentially shifted a month over, and that September was the warmest of the past 10 years.

 

Overall it was cooler than normal over the warmest three months of the year but I wouldn’t put it on the same level as the green tomato volcanic summers of 1983 and 1993.

 

However, 2010 was a very cool summer for CA moreso than the PNW, and 2011 was similar. I could be wrong on 2011 for CA though.

Beautiful day in the s valley. Currently 81F and getting hot in the house with the sun on the west side of it. Gets in the front porch door. Unfortunately we can only put 1 AC window unit in or else it blows our circuit. Still helps to sit next to it in the bedroom. Time to put it in on Monday.

I’m with ya. I’m putting mine in tomorrow. I have a 20,000 btu unit and if I space fans out accordingly it’ll cool the house just right in a hot day here in Redmond.
