  2. Topped out at 89 today. A bit too warm for my liking but it was really good weather for my son's first birthday party at Lake Wilderness. I'd say it was a success!

  3. Beautiful day on Hyalite today. Picked up about 0.5" of rainfall over the last few days and today blue skies. Heat and likely smoke return tomorrow unfortunately.

  7. You know exactly what you do and it makes me hesitant to ever post here. Admittedly, I don’t have much in the way of weather knowledge to add anyways. If its sunny only in town, you post the North Bend webcam and ignore our area. If it’s only sunny in our area, you post photos of our area and ignore the clouds in town. Tale as old as time.

  9. Awoke at 3 am so decided to just head up to Rainer this morning. So I was already up there during that first shot you took! Smoke free !

  10. You are splitting hairs. Shawnigan, MUCH further north, has an even bigger departure. Eugene is on pace for their 2nd warmest July of all time, PDX 5th, not much of an outlier. And if we look at the east side, this month is blowing away pretty much every July one record over a wide area. As my previous post which you ignored, stated, it really comes down to how prone an area is to marine influence with weak onshore flow and amazingly consistently warm upper level airmasses.

  11. I've missed some days due to work scheduling, but it needs to be said: Today will be two minutes and twenty two seconds SHORTER than yesterday... Which was two minutes and nineteen seconds SHORTER than the day before... Which was two minutes and sixteen seconds SHORTER than the day before... Which was, finally, two minutes and thirteen seconds SHORTER than my last check-in! If my arithmetic serves me, that ought to be around the order of nine minutes and ten seconds in total...in just four days...

  15. Tucson having its wettest monsoon to date! Hopefully we can get some of that moisture advected up this way for a juicy thunderstorm outbreak come August.

  16. Yesterday ended up several degrees cooler than expected due to clouds. Now we’re getting some rain this morning which wasn’t forecasted. Gotta appreciate the little things during summer.

  17. That shelf cloud passage was awesome. I haven't seen anything like it since then.

  18. This is from July 30th last year……hoping to get up there this next week for another hike and I’ll snap another photo for comparison. North side of mountain fyi

  19. 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.

  20. All I’m asking is that I’m allowed to post my observations without an “actually…”. I really don’t care, I just enjoy PNW weather.

  23. Can you make out my drain field? Everything is brown otherwise...haven't mowed the rest of the yard in two weeks and only contemplating it to knock down the weeds. Locally the drought here is comparable to 2012 and 1988.

  24. NWS Hastings with a very detailed disco this morning on how models and Mets missed this ongoing thunderstorm activity that wasn’t seen 12-18 hours ago. I appreciate his honesty and apology for not seeing this. 3-5” in places have forced flash flood warnings to be issued for the first time since Mid May. I’m approaching 0.75” as heavy storms continue to develop. Farmers just north and east of me had 2-3” earlier and will only add to that this morning. Can you imagine what the dews will be when the real heat hits mid week? I’ll sweat standing in place.

  25. It's a top tier warm month for most of the PNW. You are arguing semantics and will never give up on a losing argument, you can continue to spread misinformation, that is your prerogative, I am done arguing with reality. Funny the two people telling us it hasn't been hot, do not live here.

  26. So much anger on the forum this morning! Everyone should go out and play a nice round of golf and relax today!

  27. While I was flipping through the models this morning, is this a coincidence??? Nature dialing up some blocking??? December preview??? August will open up the doors with some cool and refreshing air for the MW/GL's region. Check this out and you can't script this any better. The 500mb pattern being forecast by the GEFS/EPS for Aug 1st is earily similar to the CFSv2 forecast for December....Hmmmm, this is intriguing....just saying, winter on my mind while we are in the midst of a heat wave. #CoolThoughts I see you Greenland Block...I'll see you Rock in a Bigly way... Lastly, I found this animation off last nights 0z EPS quite interesting as we see the LRC's colder phase showing up and the predictable Vortex to take hold across eastern Canada late month into August. Not just 1, but 2 rounds of cold 850's coming directly off the N Pole into the eastern CONUS. There is no doubt in my mind, that this is most def a signal of where we are heading down the road. Cooler days are heading our way soon.... #WeatherGeekin'

  28. Well if you only care about the small part of the region surrounding your house, don’t chime in on a debate regarding regional anomalies with incorrect statements like you did earlier. Sorry that it’s warmer everywhere else this year and wherever you live is largely unrepresentative of the region.

  29. Wow, I just took a rain fall measurement and I recorded 1.78" of rain fall here overnight. GRR reported a thunderstorm at 5AM. While that may be true I did not see any lightning or heard and thunder but I do sleep good. There are some thunderstorms to the south west of GR down west of Kalamazoo at this time. most of the night was in the lower 70's but during the rain it fell to 67 at GRR and it fell to 68 here. At this time it is 68 with light rain falling.

  30. The not-so-snowy Mt. Rainier and moon rise from Lake Wa. Wish I have a better camera for the moon rise. The phone cam was not doing it justice but still a wonderful reflection off of the water’s surface.

  31. 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...

  32. 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.

  34. It was rain and showers all morning until about noon in Lynnwood and Everett. It was wonderful. I got soaked! I don't know when it started, but it was raining at 8:00am. The rain felt so good!!! It did not hit 70F here today. We were in the mid to upper 60s as out high.

  35. Hmmm… In that case, sunny or cloudy North Bend sucks.

  36. Look, I posted what I’m observing down in North Bend from my office (persistent clouds) and what my weather station said at home (65°F). I just stepped outside and can see the dividing line of cloudy and clear skies to the east. I live up against Rattlesnake so if I don’t get morning sun my weather station often runs a bit cooler. I know you’re obsessed with making it appear as sunny and warm as possible in North Bend, but do you have to critique or clarify every post I make?

  37. Humidity, even in the absence of precipitation, is a substantial dampener on fire weather. There’s a good reason large, prominent conifers grow naturally (for now!) all the way down into California, despite our lengthy and bone-dry Mediterranean summer climate. Not only are our marine layers an effective cooling method; the humidity they provide gives our native species an ambient water source during our natural dry bouts, as well as a cap on destructive fire potential. It’s also all the more reason to be concerned by our sharp decline in marine pushes over the last 50 years. Such an innocuous change could result in vast consequences to our local ecology, and in many cases, it already is.

  38. Sunny in Tacoma currently but cloudy under the marine layer down south here. Had a nice sunrise too before the clouds rolled in.

  39. Its not often you see such high DP's in PHX at this time of year. It must feel tropical out there and I'm sure things are looking very lush where there is vegetation growing. In fact, my mother told me there is an abundant amount of wild mushrooms up in the mountains from all the rainfall. Scottsdale has received a little over 4" of rain the past 3 days alone! Wild stuff.

  40. Best storm of the season that I’ve experienced with torrential rains, wind, vivid light and very loud thunder. Over 1” of rain in about 20-30min. Local reporting station shows 1.27”. Very pleased.

  43. In a league where star players constantly pick up and build a super-team to chase titles, Giannis did it the right way. He had the chance to leave Milwaukee but stuck around. Good for him... still only 26.

  45. Had some beautiful soothing stratiform rainfall this afternoon thanks to monsoonal moisture. Smoke is gone (for now) and the vegetation was very thankful for the slight reprieve from this forgettable summer.

  46. I really don’t think Tim was actually trying to criticize you at all here…it can be hard to tell on the internet what people mean. Sometimes he is criticizing things people post but not everything he’s saying has a double jaded meaning to it. As for you not having much to add to the forum you actually do add to the place we’re glad to have you. Just talking about your weather conditions and statistics adds a lot to the place. Just stick around and you learn a lot. I’m still not an expert by any means but I’m still learning a lot. You learn a lot about how to read and interpret forecast models here which I had no idea how to do until I stuck around for awhile.

  47. A warm 78* this AM with humidity at 58%. Chance of rain this morning then here comes the heat. 91* for the high. It’s still summer. Update: As feared, rain was a no show!
