Looks more like a hotel than a house, aren't there areas left with normal summer houses?

Here is a normal summer house right next to ours...Still stunningly expensive.

Had a warm time camping, but thanks to the elevation it was a lot more pleasant than what the lowlands experienced. I will say, Cascade River and Cascade Pass area of the North Cascades National Park

Same with Victoria, I've seen some flashes and heard distant thunder but nothing has come close yet. Different story further north on the island, my brother captured these from Nanoose looking SE over

Fall begins in 46 days. We're only 3 months away from where we start foaming at the mouth at models looking up north for arctic air surging down into Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia, and Alberta! I ho

Gfs looks way more robust with the rain on tonight’s run. Would be nice to get some rain considering lightning may have sparked some fires today.

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

Palm trees just loooove the PNW.

 

Bro we can’t even grow those here.

 

They grow here.  That house in the pics has real palm trees.   We have had this discussion too many times to count.  

 

This is in Auburn... near where Jim and Hawkstwelve live.

It will dig offshore and pump up another big heatwave. You heard it here first.

FWIW... the ICON agrees with the GFS.

We deserve a break after suffering through this.

 

I don’t think you realize how draining this weather actually is. Add 10+ degrees for heat indices (most days).

Those warm min temps would make it really miserable IMO.  The cool nights here make any heat so much more bearable.

I don't get your obsession with phantom heat these days.

Temp just jumped from 77 to 83 here in a few minutes. Winds really picked up from the SE. Some light rain and a couple rumbles of thunder

That's not too far off the prices around here, but you tend to get a larger plot of land on the central island lakes: https://www.realtor.ca/real-estate/21183345/10036-stirling-arm-cres-port-alberni-sproat-lake

Youch, skips over Portland only to hit Seattle  <_>

I know....that really sucks!  Totally unexpected. If I didn’t head down to the waterfront I wouldn’t of know it was so close! 

Again, folks were all taking pictures of the sunset to the west while I was looking north enjoying the other show. Didn’t last too long though but enough to entertain me for 10 minutes

The 99 at Everett today is the 2nd warmest day on record there.

 

 

That is crazy.

It's been a dynamic evening here, the temperature crashed to 66F and some heavy showers popped up out of nowhere. We just had a few flashes of lightning to the west, I think the first audible thunder here in over 2 years.

Almost sounds like a convective heat burst. Rare around here I’d imagine.

A bit of convection in the area but pretty meager. I guessing the bump in temps was due to some enhanced down sloping between 9 and 9:30 with the SE winds.

Crap it’s 87 in Arlington now with SE gusts to 19

 

Very strange.

Cooled down to 74 here then popped back up to 80 in a 20 minute period (at 9:40), back down to 77 now.  Looks like the storms/moisture is passing either side of Bellingham.  We had a pretty good line headed our way and it just evaporated over Whidbey Island.

Same with Victoria, I've seen some flashes and heard distant thunder but nothing has come close yet. Different story further north on the island, my brother captured these from Nanoose looking SE over the Strait of Georgia. This is the second big storm in the last 3 weeks up there.

88F for a high today which is comparable with our average warmest day of any given year. Went for a late afternoon hike/swim in the North Cascades and the car thermometer was going haywire as we hit the thermal pockets on the way back. Temp varied between 60F and 85F, swinging wildly as we drove along Highway 20 about an hour ago. Nice to see the lightning over Vancouver Island also lighting up the distant western sky.
