I think the western metro actually did a bit better in 1992-93 than Portland/Vancouver. More like the WV. The clipper storm on 1/8/93 dropped a few inches west of the West Hills while the outflow ate it up to the east.

The big one here in early January was the 4th or 5th. Had 5-6” with it. Then we had a couple other 1-2”’events over then next couple weeks and a 3-4”’event mixed in too. Then 13” in February

December 1992 was no slouch too. We deserved it after the 91-92 turdfest.

At least the 18z is an absolute thunderfest. Cutoff lows create pretty incredible dynamics.

68/52 with 3.39 in the bucket for the month Federal Way.  Looked nice according to the Nest cam!  I’m not missing the PNW and really don’t want to come home.  Sounds like my yard is out of control according to my caretaker of the house…..ugh! 

Otherwise it’s been beautiful down here in the SW. it was just a bit nippy in this location earlier!

I wonder, how cold could temps have gotten had the February cold wave happened a month or two earlier? That was a nice event, the east winds were blowing a lot in my area. I had a few flurries of snow on the morning of the 24th, but not much. There were some interesting clouds the day before the cold came though.

68/51 today…0.01” of rain this morning. Broke a 4 day dry streak which was our longest streak since late March. Today was very nice though rained early in the morning. Last week has been much drier than earlier this month. Picked up 3.02” in the first half of the month but just 0.20” since. Euro shows us finishing the month around 3.75” if it verifies.

70/52 day here. A little warmer than anticipated with less in the way of cloud cover. Had lots of afternoon sunbreaks and it’s crystal clear now. Down to 57 with cooling NW winds so may score a midnight low.

My dog only eats four things: chicken treats from Costco, turkey, shredded cheese, and the kibble we smuggle in with the turkey and shredded cheese. Oh and some doggy anti depressants because why not. Oh and grass to puke and reset his stomach once a week. Interesting dog.

Yeah, I’d heard of it before but always thought it was a perfect storm kind of thing. My son had left a bag in the computer room and religiously closed the door because of my daughter’s cat. The cat HATED him for some reason and would go do his business in there when he could. The dog was a chow hound and only had access for maybe 10 minutes. That was a bad day…

My biggest fear! I always do a double check of the entire house before I leave to make sure everything is out of paws reach. That only increased after Matt mentioned that a while back. I’m a bit of a helicopter dog parent. They have no excuses to get into our food when I spend plenty of money shipping hairy ears and tracheas (along with other yummys) to the house each month, lol!

My in laws always feed the dogs things you read never to feed dogs. Like giant bags of old bones they freeze and then thaw out and bring over. They seem to love it... Though I don’t approve.

I have to admit my wife is far more militant about it than I am. I was jaded by the fact that growing up with a lab who had the iron gut of iron guts. Best was the six foot (give or take) length of rope he managed to eat. That was a fun lesson about the canine gastrointestinal system.

00Z ECMWF is farther north with the Sunday system... and that also delays clearing on Monday.   Oh well... hopefully timing will speed up a little more.

You would think one of the days should end up ok.  That having been said the models have gone downhill for the weekend as a whole.  Hard to believe some people think it's weenieish to want a nice holiday weekend.

Sounds like you've had some wild experiences with your dogs eating things they shouldn't.  We have only had cats, but our youngest one managed to eat one of my sons anti seizure pills when she was a kitten.  She got very woozy but came out of it fine.

New euro would get us over 4” of rain this month breaking the record for wettest May here (2005 to present). We will see how this afternoons run looks. sea-tac record is 4.76” in 1948…not going to get there but could get to 2nd place all time.

Interestingly... 7 of the top 10 wettest Mays have been since 2000.      Sure seems like May is becoming wetter.

If anything it seems like it’s been very boom or bust recently. Either less than an inch or 3+ inches here recently.

True... but the really wet Mays have definitely increased in frequency.

Interestingly...3 of the top 7 driest Mays have been since 2015. Sure seems like May is becoming drier.

If you look at the probabilities I'm pretty sure seeing 3 of the top 7 driest months in a 7 year period (out of a 78 year period of record) is less likely than seeing 7 of the top 10 wettest months in a 22 year period, but both have been more extreme. As mentioned above, more like a boom or bust.

Good point.    Definitely boom or bust and becoming more volatile in the last 20 years.
