  4. You know I truly didn’t understand what everyone was talking about when the term “flatironing” was brought up when I started here. I fully understand now.

  5. You're the only one who's utterly obsessing over this idea that 2015 is the gatekeeper for an "average hot summer" here. It's not and it was in fact an unprecedented hot summer at the time. The fact that we can seriously entertain that being rivaled this year in a good number of spots is a testament to how crooked things are at the moment. And there's no way that a winter (or summer) month that was averaging 2 degrees below normal across the I-5 stations would be getting dismissed by you so casually for its near averageishness.

  6. Taking a gander at the JMA weeklies, once we get past this warm spell, the EPO turns negative and blocking holds up top creating a favorable NW Flow pattern aloft ushering in cooler air for our Sub as we get deeper into the 1st part of Aug. It should get quite wet and active for the central CONUS and ag belt. Week 2... Temp/Precip... Week 3-4... Temp/Precip...IMO, this period could very well be quite cool and long lasting...

  7. Stay tuned for Flatiron’s next argument: if we completely ignore the last week of the month July 2021 was nowhere near as hot as our hottest July on record.

  9. You seem to have missed the point though. Nobody really cares if it’s the #1 summer or #3 or #5. It’s been warm that’s what we’re talking about. Looks like the final 1/3 of July will bump the averages up even more after a really warm June on top of it. Constantly trying to tell everyone its not going to get to 2015 (when it very well could depending on august) and that its been a “reasonable summer” because were running behind 2015 (for now) is all you care about. Can you not actually see how irritating that actually is and why you’re getting sh*t from everyone? Then try to insult James jones when you don’t like what they’ve got to say real nice. Nobody even really cares about the point you’re trying to drive into everyone’s heads. It’s been rough with how dry it’s been out here and it’s been warm in many places to the south and away from the water wether it hits 2015 levels or not is beside the point for many of us.

  12. You literally said 2013 was hotter than 2021 on the east side. Are you okay?

  13. No, you literally said "that July was also significantly warmer on the eastside". Please go back and read what you wrote. The literal opposite is in fact the case. Literally.

  14. Some July 2013 mean temps on the eastside: GEG- 73.94 YKM- 77.48 RDM- 69.58 PDT- 75.34 Some July 2021 mean temps so far, with a hot last week of the month still to come. GEG- 77.55 YKM- 79.60 RDM- 72.38 PDT- 77.50

  17. Nobody cares if we end up top 5 or the hottest summer on record at this point. It’s been a warm dry summer. July will end in the +2-4 range for many places…more like +1-3 near the water…after an anomalously warm June. Yes please keep telling us how “reasonable” this summers been because iTS nOt as hOT As 2015 while you’re out of state not even experiencing it. You literally care more about proving it hasn’t been as hot as 2015 than anyone on here. Nobody even cares that much if it ends up #5 or #1 a warm dry summer is a warm dry summer. It might as well be 2015 with how dry it’s been. #1 might be harder to do near the water but many could still do it.

  20. It is a refreshing 61F/61F as I have the windows open allowing the cool air to spill inside. Prob not going to open them up until late next week as it appears now with all the heat and humidity coming. Storm chances look hit or miss but I like where I'm sitting to get some precip next week. Max daytime temps do not look at all that bad compared to those W & NW of here. I think I can tolerate a few days in the 90F-92F range, but the DP's is where it will get ugly climbing into the low 70's. @Clinton, I meant to get back to you earlier wrt to your question about a summertime vortex up in Canada late month. I've been monitoring the models and my call was for a big trough to close out the month for the eastern Sub and last nights runs are starting to sorta lean that way. The GFS op runs started seeing the stronger -NAO signal displacing the vortex farther south. An incredibly strong Hudson Bay vortex is forecast to develop. It'll likely be snowing in the Archipelago...again...where summer snows have been common up that way this season. A fascinating wx pattern is shaping up to close out July. The battle of extremes across our Continent is wild from the intense Heat that is shaping up for the central CONUS, Western Wild Fires, cold/snow up north in Canada and let's not forget the amazingly coo & wet Monsoon season that continues to deliver the "goods" in the desert SW. Speaking of which, this map is eye candy for AZ folks. In all honesty, I kinda wish I was there to experience what is coming over the next 3 days over there. 00z GEFS trends... Looking out in the LR, the -EPO is going to be a big time driving force for our wx pattern. NW Flow aloft coupled with high lat blocking is going to usher in cooler air into the Sub as we roll into August. The coolest month of the summer season as a whole is looking like a good call for the majority of our Sub. Big changes are coming next month.

  21. We will be starting at 7 am and stopping at 2 pm until this heat wave ends. But because of the high humidity and previous heavy rains our dew is incredible! And it last until noon. I bet some 80 dewpoints here on the way. High made 91 today with high dewpoint of 78.

  27. It’s quite a fascinating phenomenon. I think it has to do with living at high altitudes.

  28. To be fair to him, there are a few users here that will drive their points so far into the ground they emerge on the other side of the Earth. The only difference is how they go about beating the dead horse. One tries to use debate tactics to make himself feel intellectually superior to others, one will threaten to beat you and cuss you out if you don't agree with his point, and one has gotten incredibly skilled at masking it as innocent banter after years of people giving him sh*t for it.

  29. Right and I understand you never disputed the dryness you said it’s been dry everyone knows that. But the warmth regionally is more than just the heatwave. Many locations had record breaking stretches in the 90s outside of the heatwave. It’s not like it hasn’t been warm outside of the heatwave it’s more than that. Many places are running above normal still this month and the final 1/3 will bump that up even more. We've been lucky in the Seattle area compared to the rest of the region. August could very well end up warm too. It’s not so outlandish to think 2021 could challenge 2015 in many places based off the first half of the summer…despite a “reasonable” but still above normal July that you’ve been praising.

  30. Some people might have made those 2015 comparisons during the height of the historic heatwave but only one person here seems to be so fixated on it that they are continuing to recall those comparisons almost a month later. No one else has been beating the 'this is not 2015' drum harder than you. You've made your point over the past month, then made it again, and then made it again just to make sure the dead horse was beat enough. Now you should let it rest or you will keep getting responses similar to James Jones, TacomaWaWx, etc.

  32. The ****? How that post led you to engage in personal insults is beyond me. Apparently even the slightest suggestion that there was colder weather at some point in the past is enough to get you to completely melt down. Get some help.

  33. Temps July 2021 to July 2015 to date: PDX: -2 OLM: -3.5 SEA: -4.5 And there are going to be some impressive lows tomorrow morning, which you can suck. #not2015

  34. At this time in 2015 we were at the start of a troughy period much more "impressive" than anything we're going to see this month. From the 21st through 27th PDX averaged 75.6/58 with .54" of rain, good for -4.7 for the 7 day period including a sub 70 high on the 25th. #ColdJulyMemories

  35. Well the GFS is obviously cracked out. Not that it's not going to be awful, but that 115 will be more like 105.

  40. 1. I responded to someone (James Jones) who was making a direct comparison to 2015. Maybe you should take it up with him. 2. Where I live has nothing to do with the stats. I lived in the PNW (including Tacoma) longer than you've been alive, just FYI. I have family in the PNW and plenty of reasons to be invested in the weather there, so really no reason to try to make that argument.

  41. Cooling continues across the Pacific, as upwelling increases in association with the recent trade burst and termination of the downwelling OKW. This will moderate temporarily following the CCKW propagation across the Pacific over the next 2 weeks, but later in August and September should see another trade surge. La Niña conditions likely by October or November.

  46. KC office posted this over the weekend and my summer has been below average temps and above average on precip. Even with the hot weather coming I believe summer will finish the same. Halfway through the summer (Jun-Aug) we are 2.3 degrees below normal for the season. KC, on average has 15 days of 90 degrees or more at this point...this year we've had 14. We have not had a 100 degree day this summer with the warmest temp being 98 on 6/17 and 6/18. The 90s will return later this week. #Summer2021InKC

  47. @Clinton, your post the other day about the early June heat wave that is cycling through over the next 1-2 weeks for the Upper MW/Plains states is right on. This time, however, instead of a +NAO/+AO the teleconnections are going to flip and are forecast to hover near neutral to (-). This allows the storm track across Canada to be adjusted farther south instead of farther N as it was back in June allowing the massive and expansive GL's ridge to blossom like it did back then. I'm still thinking our area will benefit from "ridge riders" and the most intense heat remains out W & N. 0z Euro precip map over the next 10 days....can you spot where the summer anticyclone is located??? On a side note, a welcomed bullseye of abundant moisture for the state of AZ. Boy, does that look pretty for the SW.
