  1. Got both Rainier and St Helens in the same shot when I was heading back to Sioux Falls yesterday.

  2. Checking in 68/52 with 3.39 in the bucket for the month Federal Way. Looked nice according to the Nest cam! I’m not missing the PNW and really don’t want to come home. Sounds like my yard is out of control according to my caretaker of the house…..ugh! Otherwise it’s been beautiful down here in the SW. it was just a bit nippy in this location earlier!

  3. Looks like the Tonga eruption has been estimated at VEI 6. Largest since at least Pinatubo. Also produced the loudest sound on Earth since Krakatoa. https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1029/2022GL098123

  4. Tried to catch what might be the last good alpenglow of the season on Mt. Stickney. It certainly benefited from the extra foot of snow.

  12. For the most part, it appears that it'll be a chilly and crisp start to Friday around these parts once the cutter departs. Nature is going to deliver a well-deserved and perfectly timed Summery wx pattern for the Unofficial start to Summer this Memorial Day weekend. I've been watching the models like a hawk over the last few weeks for the upcoming weekend. I remember long ago the EPS was suggesting a big trough over the GL's region and the GEFS had a ridge. Kuddos to the GEFS for winning this LR battle. So, here we go, who's ready for a very nice MDW?? It may start off rather HOT for those out west, but now, both the GEFS/EPS are showing a slow moving CF to settle south across the western SUB for Memorial Day. Memorial Day Boomers??? I'll try to dive into the Summer pattern a bit more when I get a chance, but something rather fascinating is going to develop in the high lat regions right as we open up MET Summer. Big Time Blocking. As a result, I've noticed how much wetter the C Plains could get, esp where the majority of the US wheat is grown in KS! #bullseye...I didn't realize that KS also exports a lot of Beef as well. This is all good news for our farmers, ranchers and those who are self-sufficient.

  13. I was looking through some photos and found these pictures from 1/11/17! The table in the first photo is actually under cover, the wind had blown the snow on it and into the entire covered area.

  14. IMG_4310.MOV Bet my lunch spot was cooler than your guys’ today! Spent the day in Bend area for my Cascade Volcanoes field trip. Ate lunch on top of Lava Butte (my friend’s sandwich got a bit crushed on the hike up), the video is looking to the south towards Newberry Volcano and Mt Thielsen area. Could see every volcano between Hood and Scott today. Plenty of fun clouds towards the crest. Actually saw a few raindrops in Sisters! Mostly clear now in Lebanon though.

  19. QBO is officially in the westerly descending phase. Barring any disruptions, this is literally perfect timing to maximize the -ENSO NPAC high connection next winter. Don’t want to jinx it, but the precursors to a cold western winter are all present.

  20. Lol. When I refreshed and saw 2 unread pages in 2 hours, I had hoped the models were showing some AMAZING convective outbreak late this week. Should have known it was all about preferences and North Bend microclimates.

  22. April and May (so far) for Oregon and Washington. Uniformly cold up and down the I-5 corridor. The biggest difference seems to be east or west of the Cascades, especially in April. But if you look really closely you can see a patch of bright pink over Covington and burnt orange over Springfield.

  28. Dude, you want me to play the semantics game too? Sure, I'll get into semantics: Below, I have bolded the sentence that I called a lie: Firstly, let's cover definitions: 1) "Walk": To move at a regular pace by lifting and setting down each foot in turn, never having both feet off the ground at once. 2) "Valley Floor": The lowest part or bottom of a valley 3) "Few": a small or limited number, more than a couple, but less than several. Often refers to "3". Now, let's evaluate your use of these terms one by one: 1) I do not care how fast your wife runs or how long she has been running. You said you could walk to the valley floor in a few minutes, which is a lie. 2) Below is a topographic map of our region. As you can see, the valley floor is not reached until about south fork of the Snoqualmie River (as you'd expect). It is not an arbitrary service road, it is the actual valley floor. 3) No one is walking 2 to 3 miles in a "few" minutes, I don't care how downhill it is. I've walked to town, I've run to town, I've biked to town, in every possible way to get there. Never made it in a "few" minutes. Summary: You cannot walk to the valley floor in a few minutes.

  29. It is indeed much more nuanced. Cloudcover % corresponds heavily with precip totals. And like with your precip totals, your cloudcover % is similarly going to still be dramatically higher than the populated areas down at the valley floor. It rains harder and for longer. So maybe Fall City gets a few hundredths of an inch on a showery day where they still see 6 hours of sun. Meanwhile you saw 0.40" and got maybe 90 minutes of sun that day. Pretty common dynamic in the spring throughout the PNW. These things add up and make an obvious difference in perception. You like to broadbrush and try to paint a different picture, for whatever reason...

  30. Right, he acts like having a sprinkle at any point during a day automatically equates to day-long cloudcover, and seeing any amount of measurable precipitation being observed at a location automatically renders it a fair comparison to his.

  32. Mid-60s highs, lower to mid-50s lows and rain this week is looking like the drill for me. Seattle, Oklahoma ladies and gentlemen. I'll probably cycle a furnace a few times after or starting today.

  41. GFS toying with some comparatively toasty temps and diffluence aloft next Wednesday/Thursday ahead of that trough. Looks like the first warm core thunderstorm threat of the season for the westside.

  44. As long as we stay below 76 the rest of the month, I'm happy. Also want a cold, wet Memorial Day weekend so that Tim can send us some nice pictures of Toppenish.

  46. Seems like consensus has been building for another troughy period sometime in the first week of June, after a couple day break around the beginning of the month.

  47. Have some thunderstorms moving through with lots of lighting. Storms are small and moving fast so they may only produce a light amount of rain.

  48. Hang in there, the 0z Euro along with the other modeling are suggesting a good chance that your region will get a darn good soaking. I'm liking the SLOW movement of the "cutter" next week thru the MW. Reminds of a few storms we tracked during the winter. While it will bring some dreary and depressing weather around here for a few days, I'll welcome the precip. 0z EPS...looks like a precip map we've seen all to common since last Autumn... After this storm departs, I'm really liking the trends for Memorial Day Weekend for literally the entire Sub. It appears we all will have at least a couple days of dry weather and very comfortable temps. This is about as perfect timing as one can ask for! I would say that most of us on here will appreciate it after the kinda Spring wx we have been dealt.
