  1. Absolutely beautiful ferry ride into the San Juan’s this morning. Big waves through the Rosario strait. Was pretty stormy and windy at the beginning but was calm and sunny by the end.

  2. Meant to post these earlier, but there were some great early season snow conditions up on Hood this weekend. Snowshoed the PCT in the Barlow Pass area, then to Enid Lake by Gov’t Camp for sunset. Easily 2+ snow around Barlow, maybe a foot or so near Gov’t.

  4. One hell of a view today. Wasn’t able to capture Mt.Baker yesterday but got it today! Will be getting photos of the full moon and the planets tonight.

  6. Don’t worry one bit and don’t shut up. Very few of us have passed through the Jesse gauntlet of perception/preference perfection and come out clean on the other side.

  8. GEFS control shows a strong retrogression signal beginning on Dec 9-10th with all the major players locking in the cold air with Arctic intrusions into the Northwest leading up to Christmas. This is just about the ideal scenario IMO!

  9. Hey folks! As we have what might be our first big event of the season, I want to ask everyone their input to an idea and a favor. First, what are people's thoughts to kicking off a separate topic to track this storm? Not that we would kick people out of this thread, but having a thread where people can nowcast, hit repeatedly with maps and pictures, and something that would be easier to reference in the future. Secondly, please get the word out about the forum. I would like to see more people participate, new members on, and some old timers come out of hiding. We don't make mone

  10. Briefly beautiful sunrise this morning. Shot from the car. You can even see the inverted shadow of Mt. Hood.

  11. Crazy to think that just a week ago we were in the 70's all week! This turned out to be quite the ice storm to say the least. Ice accretion is around .5-.75" and trees are breaking like match sticks. Hoping to keep power today as school was called off. Correction: After doing the actual way, came out to .375" of ice.

  12. All filters and manipulation here, sunrise was boring... It's already raining after this epic sunrise complete with the moon setting and a small rainbow to the west! Watermarks remain as I recently had a photo used nationally without my permission.

  16. Ahh Cape D! When I first started taking wave pictures there, I'd be the only one...now there is a row of photographers! This one worked best in black and white.

  17. Made it down to the Long Beach Peninsula today, seemed fairly typical storm there, though a tree took out a major transmission line and a lot of the pen was out even after we left. Decent waves, but not the largest I've seen. Here's a couple of cell phone pics, almost 1,500 pics on the camera to go through! Surprised at the amount of downed trees too given this seemed fairly typical for the coast.

  18. Probably going to be the theme of winter. Thanks for showing up in time while we were distracted by this impending windstorm to give us a few warm EPS maps. We can't have people get emotionally invested in this winter when all of the good models are telling us that nothing will happen. Thanks again buddy.

  19. We went on Monday so it was chilly but there was a strong NW wind. There was some fresh snow on top of Table Mtn to the NE, and some very cool cloud formations ahead of the incoming system.

  21. Came to West Virginia last week and have been here since. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of time off with Covid. It’s easily the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. Too bad the storm wiped most of the leaves but I was able to get glimpses of it atleast! IMG_0768.MP4 IMG_0779.MP4

  22. Was hiking as high as the 6,000ft elevation on the east side of Mt. Hood the other day, and there was only a dusting in the shade. The western larches are close to peak up there right now, btw. Putting on a great show this year.

  23. I’m pretty sure I can speak for everyone and say we’re all glad you post here. You do post valuable info here...it’s hard to know all the stats for your location unless your recording them and have access to records going back a long time.

  26. Apparently a lightning bolt struck a tree on my parents property last night around 7PM, pretty close to their house. They said it sounded like it was right on top of them. Top branches of the tree are burned to a crisp and a sliver of the tree was carved out and fell off. Carnation always gets more interesting weather than Maple Valley. Should have never moved.

  29. I was able to make my work trip out to Kearney, NE this morning... lots of ice just west of Lincoln. Stopped in York to check in with a client, and was amazed at how much ice they accumulated out there overnight and this morning. The pictures turned out nicely as the sun came out as I was leaving town to jump back on I-80, which really wasn’t bad at all this morning.

  30. 1.41” of rain/freezing rain here so far. Crazy how much of a difference one or maybe two degrees make. looking at my weather station, the temperature was between 31.6-32.2 all night long while we’ve had .93” of the total rain since midnight. Bc it was so close to freezing we only got minimal accumulation on the trees and elevated surfaces. You go west from here about 20-30 miles and further and that’s where the major ice accumulations occurred. The first pic is from my house, the rest off of Twitter from areas west of here.

  31. End of the past few GFS runs have that spooky "oh something is going to happen" feel. Cold building in Alaska, over and over and over again.

  33. I have been casually watching the open water issue on the Siberian Arctic coast, and it is just fascinating. I know there are people that will squeal something about a solar minimum or blue checkmark a 280 character climate change explanation but its the short term impact that is interesting. The open water isn't significantly above freezing and it seems repeated lows from the Urals just pump up more and more temperate air, which doesn't give it the time or calm needed for ice formation. Then down stream we just see dump after dump of snow on the ice that is already forming and into the Canadi

  34. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This year has been an unusual one, but as we celebrate the holiday today, I am ever so grateful to be alive, healthy and have such amazing family and friends....of course, I'm also grateful for all of you on here that contribute each and every day.

  37. Did an interesting look at first year Ninas which followed a Nino. Looked at 11 examples dating back to 1951. One clear signal was for a wet November. At SLE November's during these years averaged 142% of average monthly Precip. December also has a strong signal for being wet, January tends more toward average. February has been the wildcard month, with some very dry ones, and also some of our wettest all time.

  40. Headed down to Omaha on Thursday and then KC. Gonna enjoy some upper 60s and low 70s for a few days before reality strikes again. Road trippin’ with the wife for a few days to get out of the house. Weather looks perfect for the drive.

  41. Still have really nice fall color here on Halloween. I assume that is because we had lots of rain in September and October and there has been almost no below freezing temps and not much wind either. Good combination for the trees.
