  1. Had to pick my son in Snoqualmie Ridge this afternoon... some nice spring scenes on this beautiful afternoon.

  2. Another snowy morning. Picked up 5" overnight and still coming down heavily. Currently 32F.

  3. To a certain extent sure, but you made it sound like the climate of Montana is on fire when things aren't dormant which is false. When in fact it's really the massive fires in CA/OR/WA that is causing most of the smoke. With that all said, fire/smoke is also part of living anywhere in the West and Montana is no exception. In non drought years it can actually be quite lush, green and smoke free right on through summer because our wettest months of year are late Spring/early Summer and also plenty of Summer t-storms. Here's Late July through late August 2018 with no watering! Just matured wheat fields, green grass and snow covered mountains for days.

  6. A lot more. The airport sits in another town 15 miles away (Belgrade) in the low point of the valley at 4,400ft and is largely precip shadowed and is classified as more high desert compared to Bozeman. Think the airport averages around 60"/yr vs 92" in Bozeman and probably ~130" here. Town sits at 4,900ft and my house is 6 miles further south of town and sits at 5,350ft. Here you can see the large precipitation gradient between the two cities and as you head south and east.

  7. That's not even true... We have had two decent ridges spaced about two weeks apart. Now the ridging will move to 5-7 day intervals. We also had ridging for about 6 straight weeks in January/February, and much of the latter half of March.

  8. GFS really upping the juice on the system coming in this afternoon. Overall the run is a bit drier through day 10, but shows a good soaker with about 0.5-1" in the Willamette Valley and about 1-1.5" up here by tomorrow afternoon. PDX may get that April rainfall record... 3 decent soakers, tonight, Monday, and then on Thursday.

  12. Our HS Track Meet is today at 1 PM. All teachers are required to work at it. Storms look to come through after 4 PM. Field events should be fine, but running events might be iffy. Thick cloud cover all morning might limit some of the severe storms. We'll see.

  13. 2.53" fell at LNK overnight, basically doubling the YTD total of 2.68". Yeah it's been dry lol. Lesser amounts in SE Lincoln, around 1" has fallen so far.

  14. -ENSO regime slicing through the 2012-2021 "table" like a hot knife through butter; the same "table" supporting the massive summer climate chance in the last decade. With this regime continuing into the indefinite beyond on all global scale models, this gives cadence to the notion that we may approach some vague sense of "normalcy" this upcoming summer, in ways we haven't seen in over a decade. Won't trust that gut feeling until I see it... Though I will say, troughing has seemed easier to achieve lately, in ways I haven't seen since the -PDO dip around 2006-2012. I don't know. Maybe I'm making no sense and we'll torch harder than ever. Tough to say. I'll believe any promises of colder summer weather when I see it...

  16. I think you have the wrong perspective. Sure, it can snow 10 months of the year, heck we average snowfall 11 months of the year but things are now quickly turning green and by late May the landscape will all be lush and green. This lasts into the first part of October so almost 5 months of the year is green. As for the smoke, in a normal year, we may see a little bit of smoke/fire in August/early Sept just like the rest of West but again this is a small price to pay living in the Northwest as I'm sure you'd agree!

  17. It's not normal. Last few years have been especially bad right along with CA/OR/WA. In fact most of the smoke isn't coming locally but from areas to the west.

  18. This month has been a massive improvement compared to the last several months in regards to moisture! I have measured a little over 2 in of precip this month with about 20 in of snow when all said and done. May and June are critical though because they are the 2 wettest months of the year.

  19. Worst of the storm has passed. Heavy rain and pea sized hail. Temp has dropped over 20 degrees in the last hour. Keep chipping away at this drought.

  20. Good old Savannah is hard to beat in March and April. I remember arriving at Ft Stewart in February of 1997. I was with another guy from Portland, Oregon, and I'm from Spokane. Temperatures were in the 70s and 80s. Neither one of us had ever experienced anything like that before.

  23. Sun is out here. Gonna be an interesting day for sure; I'm anxious to see if storms can stay discrete in my neck of the woods.

  24. Upgraded to Moderate Risk for Southern Nebraska & Northern Kansas for today.

  25. This is pretty close to a nice convective outbreak. Warm/moist nose around ~800mb just asking to convect under a better upper level environment. Often the GFS misses out on just how unstable these setups can be, misinterpreting midlevel convection to a good degree. Would be something to get one with sfc temps in the upper 40s! In the summer when evenings are still in the 70s or so, it can be quite pleasant to watch cells roll in from the Cascades in the backyard... Not so when it's the average high temp for December 10th Will need that whole trough to dig out further like in previous runs if we want a decent amount of instability though. In particular, we need lapse rates above 500mb to steepen. But given the GFS' bias to dig out big, dynamic troughs, in all likelihood this very minimal convective threat will be snuffed out in future runs as is. Just a thought though.

  26. I'm going out on a limb with a prediction. Strong la niña will peak in the NDJ trimonthly period.

  32. You cannot beat early spring in the south. Those first sunny days and all of the landscaping in bloom...March into early April. I always get incredibly homesick watching the Masters.

  33. Eh.....I can remember plenty of summer trips where it didn't kick in, and you are spot on, it was intolerable. This was in the early/mid-80's and we almost always went to week of July 4th. It rarely hit triple digits, but there were plenty of 98-99 degree days (triple digits in Brunswick and Waycross). There were some years where that was the case several days, but it happened at least once almost every year.....and inevitably it was the day we would decide to rent bikes over on Jekyll island. Usually those brutal stretches ended with some wicked thunderstorms.

  34. Happy hunting! This afternoon and evening looks interesting... and this looks like the spot to be in.

  35. Would have loved this pattern during the winter. Reminds me a little of the winter of 2018-2019. Not complaining, as this will put a huge dent in the drought if it materializes.

  36. I have had torrential rain and up to nickel size hail over the last 30 min.

  37. I’m concerned with the amount of cloud cover and morning storms that won’t make this evening activity not so active. We will see if we are able to clear out by noon

  38. The land of the Sun....ahh yes, the joy it brings each and every day I see the sun rise above the mountains to me east. I'll try to take some more pics out here and post them.

  39. Yikes! This could be a dangerous situation....buckle up, things are going to get real bumpy over the next 5-7 days! The storm setting up for Mon could be even worse across KS and has that signature of a barreling squall line.

  43. Under a Winter Weather Advisory here for 4-10" of snowfall tonight into tomorrow morning. Currently raining heavily and 35 degrees. In case anyone was keeping track, our grass is finally showing signs of life again and the daffodils have emerged from the ground! Everything seems to be running a couple of weeks behind schedule. And the moisture gift keeps giving!

  44. The first 3 weeks are typically North Texas’s wettest. But this looks very good. Ranchers, farmers, gardeners will all celebrate. Lakes will fill for the summer. All really good news. After this past year it’s welcomed.

  45. Next week, May Grey really gets going!
