March 2020 Weather Discussion for the PNW

Everyone loves drizzle, especially during the summer, Tim. Time to get onboard.

 

I think on board is two words.

 

*Edit* It can be one word if it comes before the noun it is modifying. Like, "We had an onboard radio in the boat which was a lifesaver since we nearly died lost in the drizzle at sea."

This is incredibly to see in late winter here.

Current conditions:

Finally, it is official! We will be moving to Post Falls, ID in June into an apartment, then we should have our custom home completed late next spring in the Sandpoint area (shown below) - Sandpoint w

We must apply Phil's hatred of his normal summer weather to our weather here. It makes perfect sense.

You and phil should have a lot to talk about then. I've always been one of the weirdos who likes both the left brain and right brain stuff.

I was sick for a few days early last week and was kind of hoping that was what it is, just to get it out of the way with a mild version. Lots of nasal congestion on day one followed by it moving to the lungs the next few days after that with a coughing mucus fest. By day three I was pretty much on the mend though.

 

Also developed a brief, light fever early on.

 

You may have had it!

Love me some epidemiology. But I never made any such claim.

 

And I never claimed to be a bio scientist.  ;)

 

Don't have to be a licensed expert to read and understand experts. Just ask Phil!

Conference calls are always a good source of inside information.

 

Make sure you mention the fact that the virus was created by Michael Bloomberg, in a blatant and desperate attempt to steal the presidency.

maybe Tim will post the pretty weatherbell maps but it looks like you’re in the gray. Phantom snow.

Sweet! I did pretty well with the phantom gray zone snow last month!

Interesting. I hate the right brain stuff with a passion, but have always excelled at it in school. Meanwhile I’ve struggled with high level math/physics at times, yet keep returning for more beatings.

It appears our AZ poster either got banned or shamed away.

 

 

Hope he was not banned... that would be sort of silly.

We have a Tim epidemic?

Sweet! Warmer weather is on tap!

 

Actually, all the bug does is makes you unable to withstand anything other than warmer and drier than average weather. Lots of anal bleeding otherwise.

I’ll be a licensed expert shortly if all goes to plan.

 

Have you started grad school yet? One of the programs I'm looking at deals with arctic amplification/changes in the polar vortex and the downstream affects on the PNW, in terms of extreme events (heat/drought/heavy rainfall). 

 

Sounds like it will be coding and statistics heavy research. I'm rusty with the former but enjoy the latter.

I was mostly joking. Most likely, he's just had a stretch of boring weather and nothing to post about. Tends to happen down there pretty often.

It's becoming pretty clear that this thing is no joke for the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

 

Might be reassuring for those of us who don't fall into those categories, but I have several family members that I sure hope don't catch it.

Same here. We probably all do.

Yeah its bad news. That thing gets in a nursing home it can be game over for some of the residents. I think we probably have at least hundreds of people infected. If someone is asymptomatic or displaying mild symptoms they are probably not going to seek treatment or get tested. 

 

I am equally afraid of potential panic. 

 

Unfortunately trying to get people to take this threat seriously is equally challenging. No need to panic, but preparedness is key, because it is coming.

I think it's been here for quite awhile and people are just starting to get tested now so it's slowly becoming more apparent.

The thing that is confounding me is the fact the preparedness is that which should be practiced eternally. If you’re sick with a fever, stay home. Isolate yourself if you can. We have sick “protocols” at our residence to try to keep it from running through the household. Wash your hands, clean up after yourself and be mindful of those around you who may not practice the same.

 

My wife’s grandma is 90 and lives in an assisted living facility in Vancouver. If any of us have any kind of viral symptoms, we steer clear of visits just for the fact that any virus runs the risk of quickly spiraling out of control.

 

The biggest thing with this particular bug is that it apparently has such a long incubation period while most traditional “cold” viruses are (I think) around 48-72 hours...

As soon as the fever struck last Monday I went straight to bed and stayed away from the rest of the house as much as possible. If I needed to I washed my hands first and did not talk or cough to keep those little droplets in me and not on anyone else. So far I am the only one that caught the A! Funny thing is I am the biggest germaphobe of the family...And I’m the one that got sick. Pretty sure it was the Chatty Cathy that I had to sit next to on the plane.

Yeah, that last part is key. Apparently someone can have it for awhile, be asymptomatic, and still potentially contagious before they ever experience symptoms...if they ever do.

Pretty chilly surface temps out there despite 546dm thicknesses, normal 850hpa temps, and shadowed NW flow.

 

High of just 45 so far here after a low of 41. On and off drizzle much of the day.

48 at both PDX and HIO. A while back GFS was showing highs in the 43-44 range which turned out to be wrong. I was never expecting anything above 50 today but thanks for increasing my like counter by one.

Pretty surprised/relieved that the raw output didn’t verify.
