  2. Gonna change back to admin for the duration of this event in case the politics talk gets out of hand again or small changes need to be made to titles, pins, ect. User numbers are skyrocketing so the more help the better

  4. I feel bad for the new people who are just trying to understand what’s going on but people are blurting out complete nonsense.

  5. Last Warning Any political, political-adjacent, it-isn’t-political-when-I-know-I’m-on-the-right-side-of-history, or this-guy-was-a-fascist-neo-liberal-weak-will-reactionary-and-so-it-was-ok-for-me-to-doxx-his-family-based-on-a-series-of-tweets-that-had-nothing-to-do-with-the-weather posts will result in a hard ban. I don’t give a shit if you’re an American MAGA-Monarchist living in the hills of Oregon with your family, guns, and misunderstood Gadsen flags, or if your a Canadian Trotskyite living in the hills of the Lower Mainland with your Funko Pops, Che Shirts, and misunderstood Red Banner. I hate you both. Use the political shit box to publicly show to the world how much of an idiot you are so that Google and Internet Archive can capture it for posterity. Lastly, if you’re going to challenge a weather personality here, do it on the merits of weather. We all know that way too many of these folks have skeletons in their retweets, but again, we have a whole section you can make a fool of yourself over. Only Ryan Mauę is free game because that guy is a dick. If you think it isn’t political to say something that could be seen as political, it’s probably fucking political.

  11. By the way, NOAA is doing Pacific recon flights to sample air masses off the coast, so that may give better skill in tomorrow's model runs.

  15. I love it (I hate it) how every model run there is the "its game over" crowd, the "nothings changed" crowd and the "looks better to me" crowd. All of which providing zero context for their positions...

  18. Seems like the entire PNW caught word of this at the same time today. If this thing busts, the outcry will be epic and far from this forum.

  21. The thing is that a lot of our historic blasts were a nose hair away from being non-events or of the dreaded border hugger variety. December 1968, December 1964, a lot of January 1950, January 1909 just to name a few. Events with sharp boundaries teetering on the fringes of the region. I think our perspective of the past biggies is that they were all these hulking 500mb monsters that sailed smoothly through the entire region and set up shop, but the reality was often a little different. And I'm sure that volatility would have wreaked just as much havoc on the fragile weenie psyches of the time had our model friends been around.

  22. Sensing this event is going to be very snowy for western WA. Likely will be positioned perfectly between cold air and moisture sources.

  24. The GFS runs make me think of a Tonga fueled 'Day After Tomorrow' scenario for the PNW.

  25. -30F in Portland would in practice kill thousands of people. This is truly, to the word, an apocalyptic GFS run.

  26. That is dry snow too... in the 20s with easterly flow keeping cold air in place.

  27. We lost the GFS, Euro, and either the UK or GEM for about two days with about a week to go for February 2019.

  28. FWIW the 00z UKMET is a massive improvement over the crap 12z run from earlier today 12z 00z Final frame of tonight's run Thursday evening it has -13c 850s into SEA and -11c over PDX

  29. Just one time I want the truly arctic stuff to actually make it this far south and not get watered down as we approach the event. I just want to see what this climate is still capable of. I think we still have a shot since the Euro is onboard but this could still either be a total non-event or end up being a very sharp north-south gradient with cold air never really making it down here and western WA getting snow. I can't say I feel too great about it. I suspect tonight's 00z GFS is wonky though. This low bombing to 972mb like this just seems completely out of the blue and doesn't look right.

  31. Historically this has never been this forum. There's a huge variety of ways folks could learn more meteorology basics that I would strongly encourage; textbooks, classes at your local college, online courses, pro met blogs, even youtube videos, etc. This is an enthusiast forum full of a cast of characters largely intimately familiar with one another playing a huge variety of roles. This is more like a Shakespearean play for people who love weather. If you're here to figure out what's really going on, you're boned. If you're here to experience the gamut of human emotions and pick up what you can along the way, heck yeah have a seat.

  34. Has anyone checked on Phil. I imagine he’s on a plane to go measure the EAMT in person. Clearly the models aren’t depositing enough momentum in the NAM.

  39. Worth noting that although this frame says it bottoms out at -43F east of the Cascades, the terrain resolution of the GFS can not adequately account for the cold valleys like Winthrop and Mazama. In this scenario, those locations would likely not just break the all time WA state record of -48F, they would absolutely obliterate it.
