May Winter Continue 2022 PNW


Recommended Posts

Just watched the latest video from Eric Snodgrass on Ag Weather... thought this was pretty interesting.    That is Sahara Desert dust going all the way across the Atlantic and into the SE US.

Huh? Good sir that would be Rainier and Adams. Unless we took a time machine to 1979 on that flight. 

 

Edit: you also caught the extinct Goat Rocks volcano. Last erupted some 500,000 years ago and is responsible for the Palisades on US 12, the lava flows in Yakima Canyon and other interesting Dacite formations.

I thought St. Helen’s blew it’s head off.

That’s a lot of albedo.

Ended up with about 3" of accumulation from the storm. The heaviest precip fell during the warmest part of the day yesterday, which prevented bigger accumulations in Denver. Sounds like upwards of a foot in many foothill locations.

12Z ECMWF shows clearing on Sunday and a nice Memorial Day.    Maybe the timing will speed up.    There is a trough on Friday and Saturday... but the troughing does not seem to be just parked over the PNW.   It's a fairly progressive pattern and does not look too bad overall.   A big improvement over last couple of months.

Gorgeous day so far... got the lawn mowed finally.   It was ridiculously long.    

Some hints at maybe some convection now...

Don't see a cloud in the sky here in Portland! Probably going to be the first 3+ day dry stretch here since March.

Edit: Well now there are a few, but not many.

Finally got the deck furniture cleaned up and situated. The latest by far since we have lived here.

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

Gargantuan phase 8-1 MJO on the way for early June.

If this were hurricane season we’d be in deep s**t.

I suppose that is record cold and extremely wet for western WA?  😀

😂 Not an extreme pattern out there, usually.

Correlates to -NAO. Troughing at both coasts and a ridge over the Central US is how this typically plays out.

When convection gets deeper into the IO then it becomes a cooler signal in the PNW.

I bet a time lapse here today would look pretty cool.  Clouds are billowing and collapsing really fast.   I see a big black cloud building up and then look in that same direction 5 minutes later and it's all blue sky again. Need to get a nest cam.

All around us now... but still fairly sunny here.    Hearing lots of rumbles of thunder now which is interesting with the sun shining.

Looks like we will miss the storm... its moving south of us and thunder has stopped now.   Got cloudy for a few minutes and now the sun is back out.

Not bad for the holiday weekend.    I like Sunday... maybe 70 here and in the 40s in Minnesota.   :)

Currently in Sedro Woolley at the kids school auction/fundraiser. A little bumpy looking to the east.

Nothing left but just some thin high clouds now.   Radar shows what is left of that storm is moving into Renton right now.   It made it pretty far to the west.

Crazy random thunder showers popping up everywhere. Here at Renton Highlands and it’s hailing, raining, and sunny all at once. I’m waiting for some lightning and thunder 🤨

Not really popping up... they have been on a steady course westward from the Cascades all afternoon.

Bet my lunch spot was cooler than your guys’ today! Spent the day in Bend area for my Cascade Volcanoes field trip. Ate lunch on top of Lava Butte (my friend’s sandwich got a bit crushed on the hike up), the video is looking to the south towards Newberry Volcano and Mt Thielsen area. Could see every volcano between Hood and Scott today.

Plenty of fun clouds towards the crest. Actually saw a few raindrops in Sisters! Mostly clear now in Lebanon though.

Looks like its raining pretty hard in Bellevue and Kirkland too... really odd that it went right by us here and it did not rain at all.

Severe clear and a 65/36 day. Glorious for late May. Looks like PDX will possibly avoid 80 this week.
