  1. Happy New Years everyone! 2020 will be here in just a few short hours... Looks like 2019 is ending on a rather warm note locally. Average high this December is 41.5 (+3.1) and low is 27.1 (+6.5) with a monthly Mean at 34.3 (+4.8) degrees. A contrast to the cool anomaly in late summer and early fall.
  2. December is a few hours away! November ended a little warmer than normal at my place, ending the cool stretch that was September (-2.0) and October (-3.3)! Still had a nice cold blast and my most November snow in several years. High: 53.9 (+7.9) Low: 21.0 (-4.1) Mean: 37.5 (+2.0)
  3. Totally incredible. The FV3 is 100% on board for another round of significant cold just like the GFS. How is this possible after having the block in place so long already. Something really spectacular going on here!
  4. Looking at climate through the lens of degree days (base 65 F US, 64 F/18 C INTL) Cooling degree days occur any time the mean temperature of the day is more than 65 F/18C. Heating degree days occur any time the mean temperature of the day is less than 65 F/18C. A good way to measure climates is to look at the mean HDDs and CDDs during a typical year. We can also sum the two to get an idea of how relatively comfortable a climate is, and how much energy is required in that climate to heat and cool a building through a typical year. Hottest locations in the world by CDD: Mecca, Saudi Arabia
  5. Hopefully we can score something during the second half of the month.
  6. Looking back on the twin cold snaps of the past winter it is really beginning to sink in just how impressive they are. A lot of the outlying stations are now updated for those months on the Utah State Climate site and the totality of these events is really evident. Here are some of the numbers from some outlying Willamette Valley stations, and I will probably throw the airport stats in to for good measure. As you can see there weren't a ton of records for a lot of these stations because for most of them their all-time minimum records were set during the December 1972 cold snap. * Denotes dai
