  1. 1.05" of rainfall/hail yesterday afternoon/evening with the strong storms that moved through here before changing to heavy snowfall around midnight. Measured 7" this morning! Pretty incredible for May 8th. Currently 28F.

  2. What an absolute perfect day to be at the lake. Went to exercise at Seward Park after work and it was stunning. Also went for another bout of exercise before the sun set at Jefferson Park with a wonderful sun halo but forgot to took some pictures.

  4. I think Washington had a great display the otehr day, this was on my way into/and at work. I had to stop and pull over at the river. Was only the 2nd time I've seen anything other than a standard halo/sun dogs. No apologies about the logo haha, and Facebook really crapped on the quality too :0

  10. All of those I just had a flashback to 1985 when I was trying to watch a scrambled Cinemax for anything that possibly resembled a stray boob.

  12. Picked up 3.3" of rain at my house the last couple of days in strong storms with some small hail, but nothing particularly severe. We did score a tornado watch here for the first time since 2019 (I assume - none in 2020), but the conditions were pretty marginal I thought. Kind of like the MLB player that breaks his 0 for 20 hitless streak by hitting a soft popup that nobody gets to. Still, better than a tornado grand slam for sure...lol

  18. Glancing at preliminary May weather data, temperatures are around average (+/-0.5F) in Western WA, and slightly above (+0.5 to 1.5) in Western OR. Uniform precip departure west of the cascades , with most areas running around 2/3 of normal. If this upcoming pattern depicted by the models holds, which it might not, a cooler/wetter than normal May could be in store for the lowlands (the cooler emphasized especially for Western WA given the neutral anomalies right now). Reeeeally rooting for this given the drought in place; plus we haven't had a cooler than average May since 2012(!).

  21. IMG_0452.MP4 Hello from Chicago! I flew back home in the early morning yesterday (7:00am takeoff) and couldn't have asked for a better weather pattern for our flight. Interestingly, we took a southerly route through NM/OK/KS/MO and then our final descent began as we flew over Burlington, IA and crossed over the Mississippi into IL. High Pressure dominated the entire trip as we had clear skies and literally zero turbulence. It was probably the least "bumpy" flight I've taken in recent memory. I loved looking out the window and seeing all the farmland below

  24. Seattle Times has a story this morning about a movie being filmed in downtown Seattle this week (directed by Steve Soderbergh) which is also set in Seattle and they wanted dark, rainy weather. They have been standing around bemoaning all the sunshine and waiting for a cloud to pass over so they can spray everything down to make it look wet and film in short spurts when the sun is not completely out. https://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/movies/how-the-first-afternoon-of-shooting-in-seattle-went-on-the-set-of-steven-soderberghs-movie-kimi/

  28. Earliest tropical system ever recorded just off the Mexican coast! And this follows a record setting tropical season of 2020. Beautiful day here. Mowed the lawn and did some other yard work. Time to put some chicken drumsticks and veggies on the Weber. And have a cold one. Happy Mother's Day!

  29. Very nice 1.6" rain here in the Ottumwa Iowa area. Widespread 1 to 2 inches across the entire area. Models were exceptional. Started late but was quite the event with brutal east wind. Many have roof leaks owing to the wind. We have 5 gauges on 2 properties. Each was different with the wind I suspect

  31. My son got the auto repair bug and we ended up finding a decommissioned police package 2014 Ford Explorer for him. The thing was in ruff shape and he’s turned our 3rd bay into a mini repair shop complete with a broken snow shovel. The Haynes manual has become his bible.

  32. I finally finished the partial engine rebuild I did on my 1997 Expedition, and it runs fantastic! Yay! From that standpoint all of the dry weather has been a blessing since I was doing it outside.

  35. Had a very nice 0.50" rain last night between 9-11 PM. No severe weather at all for my area. My relatives that are farmers were hoping for a nice rain as corn is just starting to poke through the surface. Many chances for rain and storms in the next week.

  36. Gfs and the euro are looking pretty good next week. Hopefully it’s a start to a wet pattern sticks around for awhile.

  37. Getting close to the time of year when even a "bad" week is still likely warm and dry enough for quite a few outdoor activities.

  38. Rolling through the home stretch on spring, figured I'd post the map of my 14 day rainfall. Very blessed here to not have droughts this year, as the west has begun hoisting drought emergencies yesterday with much of the region under drought of some form.

  41. 57 and its been cloudy all day, nothing in the rain bucket. Happy Mother's day to any moms on here, and to the poor moms married to this crazy collection of weather geeks. My wife gave birth to 3 kids, but I think she sometimes feels like she has 4 kids!

  42. While the 00z EPS has delayed the warm up next weekend by a day or so if you live closer to the GL's region, it appears likely that an extended warm spell is certainly on the horizon for the following week.

  43. Ended up being a pretty nice day for my son's first flag football game in Bellevue. I was expecting a bit more showers around but it was partly sunny most of the time. All of his soccer practices in April were sunny/dry so we keep anticipating we'll have to make up for it at some practices soon but not yet!

  44. The SD black hills are awesome, I gotta come in the winter some time! The drive here was interesting as well since I had never been west of Kearney. The sand hills is probably the most desolate region of the country east of the Rockies. It was quite the peaceful drive (except at one point I was about to pee my pants and had to go on the side of the road )
