  1. Meteorological spring starts a day late this year. Astronomical spring never does. Welcome to March. Roller coaster weather is not too far off.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
  4. Yeah, another question thread. I get it. This one's less of a downer, so there's that. Which weather event stood out as the most impressive that you have personally experienced here in the West? For me it's a tie between the 1/10/17 snowstorm (15-20 inches in a 10 hour period, we get it...), and the December 2008 snow event series.
  5. Three contenders, one winner. Which of these three snowstorms was most impressive in the given area that it targeted most, in regards to amounts, dynamics, temperatures, and perhaps other factors too (wind, ice, duration, etc.). The contenders: January 10-11th, 2017 (Portland Metropolitan Area and surrounding locations): 8-12 inches of snow in many areas (with higher amounts up to 20 inches in select areas within Portland) that brought along with it thundersnow, freezing fog, and of course a complete forecast surprise. February 24-25th, 2019 (Eugene and South Valley): Brought 10-20 inche
  6. Post on our 3rd month of the year here. Looks to be wrung in with some more chili weather!
  7. What is your favorite winter of all? Mine would no doubt be 2016-2017. Snow events for everyone down the I-5 corridor, that snowstorm on 1/10/17 for my area. A windstorm in April and October, one of the strongest east wind years I've experienced. Heavy rain in February, and several snow/ice events in December and January. A rundown of that year (most are estimations): December 7th-10th: 1 inch of ice, 1.5 inches of snow December 14th: 2.5 inches of snow January 6th-8th: 0.75-1 inch of ice, 1 inch of snow January 10th-11th: 15-20 inches of snow, occasional thunder and lightning Febr
  8. What is your least favorite winter? I would say 2012-2013. I don’t remember a single event in that year that was actually noteworthy. This latest winter is also up there with how annoying and bait-and-switching it was, imagine getting screwed over twice to areas just north and south. So yeah, 2012-2013 for being boring, and 2018-2019 for being the unluckiest winter.
  9. A little further out then we normally do a thread but signal strength and models can't be ignored, lol. For some just grazed by yesterday's storm, the excitement is palpable. While GFS and FV3 seem progressive and rush a N Stream wave thru in
  10. Okay the 00z models are in the night before the big event/bust. Final chance to make predictions for the following locations! Seattle Olympia PDX Salem Eugene Bend
  11. There is a real threat to the East Coast for this upcoming storm. The GFS has been fairly consistent with the general precipitation totals. Additionally, the 13km GFS output (18Z) shows 40+ mph 10 m winds well inland in New Jersey. 50+ mph along the coast!
  12. Hopefully we can score something during the second half of the month.
  13. Hey! I am new here so I thought I would introduce myself I am Remy Mermelstein, in 10th grade at Irvington High School in NY just north of NYC. I have always been interested in weather, and did many reports on different weather topics back in elementary school. Back at the end of 8th grade I made my own Facebook Blog where I post forecasts almost every day, and other weather discussions, homemade maps and model data, the FB page is called Weather Or Not in the Rivertowns with Remy Mermelstein, it can be found at this link: https://www.facebook.com/remyweatherchannel Halfway through fres
  14. After a very boring and dry winter for the Central Plains, how will the first full month of Spring shape up? Will we finally see a change towards a wetter pattern? The first week of April will be a time to watch, as the LRC begins to favor a stormy pattern again. Here's to hoping we won't get shafted to the East once again. Thoughts?
  15. 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
  16. How will the cruddy winter of 2013/2014 end? Will the plains finally see that monster snowstorm we have been waiting for? How will spring start? March could be a very interesting month! GFS is showing a snow event during the first week of March. Wouldn't surprise me to see a large trough come out of the 4 corners and produce a storm during that time. LRC would indicate around March 4th for that. We should probably be hoping for a Colorado Low in Nebraska/Iowa. The current models are wanting to show yet another Panhandle Hook storm, which of course misses us to the East. We really nee
  17. Will the state of Nebraska finally see a classic Snowstorm this season? We are long overdue for one. I don't think I ever remember a winter when we didn't get at least 1 big storm. All of our snow has been from little 2-4 inch systems. GFS hints at some really big snows for pretty much the entire state through the first week of March. I guess all we can do is wait and see if this is finally our time to shine! GFS snowfall through March 5th. Most of this falls during the 23rd through the 25th and again from the 28th through the 5th of March. Thoughts?
  18. There is a slight chance that the plains may see some snow during the month of February. Anybody see this happening? P.S. this is a thread to post frustrations about lack of snowfall.
  19. Up late, and figured I'd start a contest for February snow accumulations for three key cities along the west coast (Vancouver BC, Seattle, and Portland). What's on the line? Pride...plus a cool shirt. Enter here: http://50shadesofvan.com/blog/2014/1/28/snowfecta-february-snow-contest The Rules: To enter: The participant must use the provided Google Form (see link) to submit answers to the nearest tenth of an inch/cm, and must denote which unit was used. Once the form is submitted the guesses are final. The contest begins on January 29th at 12:00 am PST and ends on January 31st at 11:59 PS
  20. A possible Winter Storm could take aim at parts of the Great Plains this weekend. Looking like Saturday might be the best day for it. Also looking like it might stay south of Nebraska, and mainly affect Kansas and Iowa. Thoughts?
