Wow. My god.

Though we did see some issues back in December for its rather…generous…marginal setups. Andrew and Tim will be fine.

Last nights euro run was pretty dynamic. High temps in the low 70s on one day and lowland snow a couple days later with highs in the mid 40s. Not to mention the cascades get one of their biggest snowstorms of the season in April. Would be 2008ish if it verified.

Wow any shot of El Nino has been kicked to late fall/early winter. Maybe we won't be a BBQ this summer?

Now if only I could get my bilberries to germinate...any suggestions Tim?

Oh yeah, -ENSO base state is rock solid at the moment.

How that translates to warm season patterns is less clear. We’re still in the post-1998 z-cell/WP era, after all.

But it can be overcome, as 2008-12 demonstrates. We’ll see what happens. This is the closest we’ve been since then.

59/37 day here yesterday picked up over .20” of rain yesterday evening and overnight a little more than expected maybe that will bode well for the upcoming systems too

EPS also projecting the next round of large scale WPAC subsidence by the end of week-2, which is a precursor to another trade wind burst later this month.

And trades are already stronger than average over the dateline despite the unfavorable MJO/intraseasonal state. The background state appears to be dominant at this time.

Dude, I appreciate the heck out of your forecasts, but can we get an idiot’s version too please? Like “it’s going to be colder than a snake’s a** in the PNW” or something like that.

Will be interesting to see how April plays out this year compared to 2021 and 2020. Both months featured significant dry streaks. 14 days in 2021 and 18 days in 2020. Last April was very dry…just 1.16” for the month and a week of +70 weather hitting 80 on 4/18. 2020 turned wet in the final 1/3 but the first 2/3rds of the month were bone dry. The system coming in a couple days is definitely more significant than we’ve seen in April in recent years.

That last time my mother in law flew in from Arizona I was sick and we were about to hit the December 2021 arctic madness…She is flying in today and for the first time since then I am sick again…Looks like a snowy April to remember upcoming. I am not nearly as excited this time.

Howdy all!   Now that we are into Spring,  I must say that since mid January to now has been absolutely uneventful in regards to any meaningful snow for my region "southwest MT".  Since October I have measured only 35" of snow this entire winter, which is quite a bummer, as we normally get more than twice that amount.  Anyways a trend I have noticed for a little over 2 years and I am sure many of you have as well, is that whenever the NWS posts their weekly, monthly, and 3 month outlooks for temps and precip chances for this region,  they have simply been way too generous in regards to better than average chances for above normal precip across much of the state. However,  when all is said and done, maybe a few localized areas wound up getting the predicted moisture. So even though I know its virtually impossible to accurately forecast that far out, how come they keep pushing for the above normal chances, when every previous outlook has failed miserably, and the next one will most likely as well?   I have been trying to figure out why even attempt to do an outlook that far in advance.   Thats my rant I thought I would share.

Welp the Gfs has taken away all precip for California even though it had been showing storms for a week now. Tahoe city has never recorded a zero precip month for April before. I have a feeling we will continue the record dry streak through April. Summer started Jan 4th this year for us.

It’d be very frustrating living down there with such a boom or bust potential. Pretty sad seeing how bad the droughts been getting in the west recently. We’ve got it pretty nice up here compared to just about anywhere  to the south and east.

Right now it appears the possible El Nino for later this year is off.  Might be looking at a third year Nina with a positive QBO next winter.
