  1. I was hoping for the trifecta with this trip to Rainier. Aurora, a great sunrise and lenticular clouds. Well, what a disappointment, no lenticular clouds. Had to settle for 4 hours+ of the aurora and a stunning sunrise. The dusting of snow was amazing for pictures. By the time I left around noon the mountain was largely hidden by clouds.

  2. Storm is starting to move out of here. 24hr snow total of 16". Lots of 3-4ft drifts around...what month is it again?? Currently 26 degrees with a windchill in the teens.

  3. Woke up to 7" of snow already this morning. This storm is only just getting going with moderate to heavy snowfall expected through tomorrow morning. Trees are not happy.

  5. Thought I could walk away for an evening to get some housework done, but I guess not. Friendly reminder, politics has no place amongst the observation posts, and for the most part, no place on this forum. Don't worry, I hate most of your politics, from the weird culture warrior takes about Columbus Day that no one asked for and no one wanted, to hypothetical "back in my day" straw men, and really anything that would probably look better on your respective Facebook, Twitter, Gab, or Daily Kos Blog accounts. Now if you're worried that I hate old white men and their America loving opinions, you're partially right, I hate their political opinions on our forum, you know, that forum that is more about weather, climate, and other related odds and ends, and nothing to do with politics. Maybe you're saying to yourself "but iFred, are you just like other big tech, trying to censor America loving patriots like myself", and I would say to you good sir and/or ma'am, that I would also curb stomp any random leftist garbage posted, should it ever happen. The matter of the fact is, there was like one communist guy, but he quit a while ago, and the one leftist that I know here, I occasionally troll but they know the rules and don't babble on about how "anyone saying Columbus Day is committing a hate crime". So I guess I'll sum it up like this; I don't care and most people certainly don't care about your political opinions. I could give two shits where you stand politically, I could care less if you have been posting since 2001 or if you hide behind a weird video game obsession. I don't care if you play dumb, or if you think you are being censored. I just don't care about your politics. So knock it the fuck off.

  9. What a fun evening! Tornado track about a mile north of my house, my guess is an EF-0, possibly a low end EF-1. Was able to forecast it about 20 minutes ahead of me seeing power flashes and calling 911. Very minor damage but the sound of it was pretty intense! I was able to get right into the wind field and watch large tree branches go down. I'm going to head out tomorrow and look at more damage, tree on car etc. I can't post the video here but it's on my Facebook or your local news. The video is from my house looking north, notice the rotation toward the bottom, and another opposite rotation toward the upper right just after. 615482098_Clip(September272021at650PM).mp4

  15. Perhaps I should have checked the radar...I went out to take pictures at the Grist Mill before the fall colors faded and got absolutely nailed by a storm complete with pouring rain, lightning and a falling (mainly rotted) tree.

  19. 63F high today with 0.5" of rain and wind currently gusting into the low 30s. I had a chance to get up into the Glacier Peak Wilderness over this weekend and the fall colors were unbelievable! Glad to have gotten up there before the storms moved in.

  23. Lol was awoken by what sounded like branches clanging together about 30 minutes ago probably 75 feet from my tent…was scared sh*tless since I had no idea what the sounds were. Came out of my tent with a knife ready to get in my car since I wasn’t sure if it was a person doing it and I point my my flashlight and see these big a** bucks beating on eachother with their antlers. Makes sense now! So I scolded them and they ran off lmao.

  24. Absolutely gorgeous drive to and from my friends place in Carnation this morning, the color was amazing! There where not many places to easily pull off of SR-203 but I did take a few pics up off of the side road by their property. Then stopped at the Lake Goodwin lake house on the way back. Was a drizzle fest! .16” so far on the day at home.

  25. Some strange texture to the cloud deck moving overhead right now. Maybe related to some low level instability? These are unedited.

  27. I wonder how we would have all approached the Columbus Day Storm from a model riding perspective and our reactions thereafter. I think we would go from the "Wow, look at that!" with all of the fun, giddy feelings, then when we're 36 hours out and model agreement is rock solid for 80-100+mph gusts in western OR, WA, perhaps that changes to anxious, concerned, making preparations to ensure safety of our family and pets. Prepping for power outages and rushing to the store to buy supplies, food, and other essentials. I mean it's bound to happen again. For many of us extreme or severe weather is interesting and exciting because well, it's quite boring in the PNW for a large chunk of the year or multiple years. We don't root for destruction, hardships, or deaths, we just realize you can't control any of it, so from a meteorological or weather geek perspective we enjoy the anomalous and historic side of weather. Just my take on it.

  31. Currently trying to compress images and clean up space for the forum. Since I removed the upload restrictions in November '18, we were close to running out of space. I have put in something that limits file uploads to under 100mb per post, this means no more 15 minute videos of dark clouds in suburban DC. If anyone wants to upload longer videos, either compress it or break it apart.

  34. Placement of the low isn’t as important as looking at the nature of the system. This is a displaced maritime polar vortex and associated surface low. Our traditional windstorms are typically associated with open waves which feature strong jet support and associated backside pressure rises.

  35. I know this is a weather forum - but figured I'd share that today my 10th grader qualified for the Iowa High School Boys State Cross Country meet next weekend in Fort Dodge. His team qualified and so did he as an individual running a 16:42 over a moderate 5KM course finishing 11th overall.

  40. Took advantage of the nice weather on my day off and drove up canyon creek road for the first time this morning. Was able to make it up to the snow line around 4000'. Beautiful fall colors up there and insane views of Bald mountain.
