    Epic Run of Hot Augusts in the NW

    By snow_wizard,

    I knew we have been on a roll for hot summers this century, but I didn't realize just how ridiculous it is until I took a closer look.  Just looking at SEA they have not had an August average 67.9 since 2011, and it hasn't averaged 65.0 or below since 2001.  Pretty astounding stuff when you consider their 1945 to 2020 average is 65.3, and their 1945 to 1975 average was 63.8.   I looked at the Landsburg records just to make sure it's not a UHI or third runway situation for SEA, and for the most part it's not.

    With the models indicating a legitimate cool period coming up you have to wonder if this could be the year where these insane streaks are broken.  The odds are certainly against it from a persistence point of view, but it has to happen eventually.

    Feel free to post August stats from other cities.  At least for SEA the ridiculous warmth is even more pronounced for August than for July.  There have been a couple of cooler Julys mixed in there.


    8.2 Hits Alaska Peninsula

    By Andie,

    A powerful 8.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the southern coast of Alaska late Wednesday night, prompting a tsunami warning for parts of the state and a tsunami watch as far as Hawaii. The threat of a tsunami was lifted within hours, but residents in towns and cities took protective cover from the earthquake, the largest in the United States in 50 years, seismologists said.

    The earthquake was detected about 75 miles southeast of Chignik, Alaska, at about 10:15 p.m. local time, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

    It was felt throughout the Alaska Peninsula and on Kodiak Island, the Alaska Earthquake Center reported.

    it’s looking like August will finally fire up some hurricanes once the High moves.  Enjoy the calm while you can.
