  1. When will the models stop saying there is going to be rain a week out and it never comes? The smoke has been near constant for two weeks now here in the North Sound. Can we please get some rain? Gosh...
  2. Topped out at 65.8F today. Smoke is quite thick. It has a wispy quality to it today and occasionally you can smell it.
  3. Much appreciated! Thank you for the warm welcome! I haven't been in this section of the forum as much and I was sort of surprised to not see sections more broken up by region (NE, SE, midwest, etc). I probably won't have much to add, but I will be here because I would like to learn more about weather patterns out east! Look forward to hanging out!
  4. SMOKE OUTLOOK Just want to point some stuff out. We can still see a light hazy layer of smoke high aloft in much of Eastern Washington and Oregon. It is also still prevalent in the Puget Sound and through the Chehalis Gap. Same can be said with smoke in the South Willamette Valley. Winds have shifted and we will see smoke blowing NE to W which should increase smoke in varying areas. The Lower Mainland is seeing a hefty amount of smoke coming in through the Fraser River Valley and this extends south in Whatcom County. Expect hazy skies and AQI's to degrade into Monday. Looks like Montana is getting some rain.
  5. Started out with fog and low clouds this morning. Sun is breaking through to clear skies. Currently sitting at 63F with a predicted high of 72F that I do not think we will reach. Hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday!
  6. Hello everyone! I have never posted in this thread series you all are a part of! I just had a quick question. Is this topic specifically for the midwest or it is a community of everyone from the Rockies east to the Atlantic? Hope you all have a good day!
  7. Here is Ian over the Carolina's right now. Winds continue to go down, but they are still quite strong. Lots of rain in places. We'll see how things look in the morning.
  8. From what I am reading online, it seems you are right that it only ever reached Category 4. I was listening to the Weather Channel the hours leading up to impact and they were continuously saying the Ian had hit category 5 wind speeds off the coast. But I have no evidence beyond me saying they said that. So they must have taken back that claim? I am sure in a few days we will get more info. I do know there were wind gusts of 165mph on Tuesday at 8:00PM Eastern. That has been logged.
  9. Those first responders are incredible! I'm glad it looks like they took it out? What a scary scene though. I mean, you'd feel so hopeless seeing the fire. What could you even do?
  10. We are finally seeing this bad thing break down. The eye is starting to struggle, but winds are still in rotation. Overland is should break down more as time goes by. But there is still super strong gusts and winds with very heavy rain. Coastal locations will see sporadic surges of water. What makes this worse is it can be storming outside, pouring down rain, but you can go outside and still sweat because of the humidity and how it's still well over 70F. Horrible! What stinks is how slow the hurricane is moving, just making things worse for everyone. I am confident in the State Emergency Services/Government and people coming together to pull through, but this is going to be a really messy one unfortunately.

  12. I'm really starting to wonder if we are going to enter drought and have a very dry first half of winter. I hope not, but I am feeling that (with zero evidence to back it up!) lol!
  13. Not to lead conversation away, but Hurricane Ian made landfall as Category 4 (it was Category 5 off the coast). 150mph winds in places. The eye is north of Cape Coral. Here is the latest satellite from about ten minutes ago. I added the precipitation layer. Storm surge is really bad for these western coast communities as the water is roaring back in as the winds howl.
  14. Category 4, Ian are over land. Satellite imagery from about five minutes ago. This hurricane is pretty scary looking at it. I can't imagine what it is like for the people in Florida. The eye is just north of Cape Coral.
  15. It saddens me how inactive weather talk is for other parts of the country, especially with Hurricane Ian going on in Florida right now. Since no-one is really discussing it in other parts of the forum, and I saw some are chatter about it here, I will post something about it here. I have some minor updates and new satellite imagery share! (Nothing really that hasn't already been said by others here though). Hurricane Ian looks scary here. Also the surf surge on Florida's Eastern Coast probably isn't something you want to mess with right now. Still Category 3 currently, but the damaging thing is going to be rain, tidal surge, and flooding. All which don't go great with the largest man-made canal system's in the world and building cities on top of swamps. Here is some satellite imagery from about fifteen minutes ago. Heavy and moderate rains are now hitting Cape Coral. Prayers to them all. Will continue to monitor.

  17. It seems like the rain and cooler air is never gonna come. Heat forever in the PNW now... In all seriousness, the smoke is back for the majority of the Puget Sound and parts of Western Oregon. Here are some maps and satellite images. Most locations are now at moderate with some unhealthy thrown in. Don't expect conditions to improve until we finally get this blasted heat away, some rain, and onshore flower. We've been promised rain for many weeks now, and it never comes as forecasted. I'm grumpy about this.
  18. 69F degrees with blue sky and thick, heavy smoke towards the east and Cascade's. Hate seeing the smoke keep coming back here. We need rain so bad. The forecasts keep teasing us by saying there will be rain at the end of next week, then when it doesn't come, they do the same tease over and over. We've had ONE measurable rainfall day at my house since July. Everything is green, but the ground is SO dry.
  19. I apologize if this was posted earlier. NWS Seattle has reported that Seattle recorded a total of .5 inches of rain this summer. The summer of 2017 only got .52 inches but every summer after that recorded at least 1.25 inches of rain. Of the .5 inches that the city got over the past 93 days, more than a third of it fell on Sept. 16. This summer also broke some records when it comes to heat. Temperatures hit 90 degrees on Sept. 10, marking a total of 13 90-degree days in the Emerald City - which is the most in one year. KOMO Article
  20. Pretty smokey up here in the North Sound today. Mountains have disappeared behind a layer of smoke and while i can see the sky, there is an orange tint to things and I smell burnt wood. Currently 66F.
