  1. We went downtown to see the cherry trees and celebrate my youngest 2nd birthday. It was a great day to get out

  5. Omaha was under a severe tstorm warning last night 2 different times, once until 1 am and then again until 2 am. The warnings were for collapsing showers that were producing wind gusts up to 60 mph. Didn't have any kind of wind that strong here, but my weather station did show 2 different small heat bursts where the temp jumped up about 5 degrees and the humidity dropped a decent amount for a few minutes.

  6. You can really see the UHI effect there. Portland. the largest city listed, is further from their record low minimum than any other station.

  8. Hardwoods leafing out too. The ones that haven’t are well into bud-stage. Love spring..it’s so fleeting yet beautiful.

  9. Another beautiful spring day. A tad windy if I'm being picky, but that's a small price to pay for upper 70s.

  12. Cool effect down at the refuge as well! Steam rising and blowing across the mud flats. Felt like I was in Jellystone Park with the geysers. You can sort of see them in this photo. The lighter areas

  14. 58F out there with beautiful sunshine. Once the south valley burns this Aug-Sept then I guess maybe it'll be time to move?

  15. We often see a stationary line of low precipitation during a storm. Eventually it moves away. What could cause this? Thanks, Duane

  17. Nah it’s just a product of the Pacific-transiting MJO that happens to be well timed w/ seasonal wave pool climo for warmth in the PNW. Mentioned it a few weeks ago IIRC. The subseasonal base pattern will (probably) transition into something more Jesse-favorable by mid-May, and maybe even more substantially so during the 2nd half of June and July. There’s probably a warm week sandwiched in there during the first half of June, FWIW.

  18. Not that it matters... but I wish the troughing later this week was the wet SW flow variety and not colder and drier NW flow. A couple inches of 60-degree rain would be nice.

  19. And it keeps going into the next week per the 12Z EPS. Hopefully it has the right idea this time.

  21. Yeah....I was wondering about the wind situation. UHI is probably a big part of it. PDX and SEA have both changed a lot since the 1940s an 50s. That makes it hard for both places to set record lows.

  22. This persistent NW flow is usually pretty dry. That makes this situation a bit different than 2008 and 2011.

  23. The SCOTUS has handed Georgia a win in the ongoing battle for Chattahoochee/Appalachia river water. The court couldn't find how Florida was damaged; how much is too much water usage? The real problem is not insufficient water flow down to the oyster estuary of Appalachia Bay; the problem is polluted water. In addition from the huge urban runoff from Atlanta, the farmers in the Georgia cotton and peanut along the rivers banks continue to use Roundup and other posions for weed control. These weed killers are biodegradable by UV light and soil microbes, but once the posions get into the water col

  24. We have a lot of owls out here too. The ones I have seen are Barred Owls. Down at my Dad's farm in the valley we had a lot of Barn Owls growing up.

  26. "Wx Geek Alert"...taking a look at last night's 00z EPS, look way up north towards the N Pole and you can see the Vortex send a lobe down the western shores of Canada, down into the Upper MW/GL's by Day 7-10 where it stalls out. Golly, that blocking is doing some weird stuff this Spring. As the jet stream this week pretty much comes to a crawl, some interesting model runs are showing up for later in the week/weekend. Late season Spring snows are showing up for the North land...

  27. I had a wonderful time yesterday with my sisters family in town. My duties were in the kitchen and I cooked up some delicious food. Lot's of leftovers. Spent time at the pool earlier in the day before it go to hot as PHX tied another record high for the second day in a row (98F). Well, the cool down the models were indicating last week for this week are no longer. The streak of 90's shall continue into the weekend. Full blown summer mode over here. We skipped right from late winter into summer it seems as it was snowing in the mountains just about a week ago.

  31. Next weekend is looking nicer with each run. A couple days ago the models showed a deep trough parked over the PNW through the entire weekend.

  36. High of 56 this fine Easter Sunday. Partly to mostly cloudy skies most of the day, with plenty of sunbreaks. NW winds have really picked up in the last few hours, gusts 25-30mph. DP is down to an impressive 23 with clearing skies. Current temp is 53.

  37. So I needed to do something about these frigid temps...patio furniture is out so warmer weather is now a lock!! And stopped by the lake...The kids (and myself) really missed it!! Cannot wait for summer!!!

  38. Made it to 80.4 yesterday with a dewpoint in the mid 20s. What little wind there was during the day yesterday died off at sunset and the temps tanked pretty fast falling all the way down to 53 degrees by 1030. Pretty rare to see a drop that quickly without a cold frontal passage. Severe weather looks pretty marginal with this system. Capping concerns on Tuesday and then too much clouds and precip on Wednesday. I actually am not a big fan of closed cut off lows and severe weather opportunities. A lot of times you have one hell of an ugly looking atmospheric column for winds with horrible v

  41. It's rather interesting to see how much the Global temps have tanked since the double peak. I'm really curious to see where we go over the next few years. Oceans at play??
