  1. Sure. My post had nothing to do with the season as a whole but the dwindling threat with the late weekend storm.
  2. Gonna be a record wind storm for the fishes but pretty meh inland. Bombing out way too far west.
  3. Davis pro2 and vantage pro2 line is nice. Very convenient to be able to separate sensors for proper positioning. Anemometer up high with temperature sensors closer to ground. They can get spendy if you go for all the options and the rain gauge accuracy can be a bit hit and miss. You could get a basic one to start and add sensors as you want. I’ve had mine for 9 years (wireless) and only replaced the battery once.
  4. Much will change in the coming days. Don’t worry too much at this point.
  5. 967mb low into central Vancouver island on Sunday night. Impactful, possibly devastating windstorm for Washington and SW BC
  6. Dropped to 38F this morning. I could go for some dry weather. Took the kids to the pumpkin patch yesterday. They had to cancel the hay rides this year as it was too muddy.
  7. I love windstorms. And we are almost guaranteed to lose power once the wind tops about 45-50mph. Life without power isn’t that bad.
  8. I’m assuming it has to do with the crop types in Oregon. I’ve never seen agricultural burning here either.
  9. Port Mellon BC received 13” of rain in the past 2.5 days. Not bad.
  10. Doesn’t look like much rain will make it in the Puget Sound. That system is splitting bigly now.
  11. That was a very cold December for northern areas at least. Much colder than 2008 in the monthly means at some stations. YXX put up a 30.7 for the month. 2 Fraser River events. One mid month and one between Christmas and new year’s. The late month one was colder and fairly snowy most places
  12. Storm total of about 1” here so far. Kind of underwhelming but the rain shadow was pretty well defined here yesterday
  13. 1984 is the benchmark for late October cold here. Halloween 1984 saw a 32/25 day with 7.5” of snow falling that night
  14. Some lowland snow for Halloween and a damaging windstorm for Oregon on the GFS
  15. If things aren’t going according to script lately, does that also mean the cold October connection to winter also holds less weight?
  16. Rain has been pretty light here so far. The Kennedy Lake highways station on the west side of the island is showing over 2” of rain in the past 5 hrs.
  17. There is likely going to be a pretty tight gradient in rainfall amounts around here the next couple days. A decent amount of rain shadow for MBY but the hills not too far west of here are probably going to get a foot of rain in the next 48 hours.
  18. Sure is looking wet over the next 3 days here. By Sunday we should be near normal in terms of rainfall for the entire month of October
  19. Was that when your area had a once in a generation snowstorm? You’ve been paying it back the last few winters.
  20. Pacific fire hose pointed at Vancouver island starting later tomorrow
