Yep pretty standard convergence. It’s 49 at 2:20pm here in seattle with heavy rain. Pretty impressive temp for memorial weekend. 

At least I have seen what the convergence zone is like for myself now. Last year I visited and one formed in the usual spot around the King/Snohomish line and I was driving around in North Seattle. Was very close to that one and saw the dark clouds but was not directly in it.

That is a convergence zone from hell over Seattle... completely stationary.    Disgusting.   Glad we are up north.

So as it turns out the warm spot of the Northwest right now is actually Omak! It is 70 there. Warmest spot north of Shasta Lake.

There are some low 70s in the BC interior.

Another damp and chilly afternoon here today with rain pounding on the windows and 42F currently. 0.51" on the day and adding up quickly. Also just exceeded the 5" mark for the month which is now my wettest May since moving here.

The small rivers and streams are actually rising and nearing their banks. This will be the wettest Spring since at least 2007 in Bozeman which is really nice to see after such a dry Spring/Summer last year.

Yeah... 50 at UW station and raining steadily here. Cool spring weather is one thing... but it is just nasty and raw here. Feels like a textbook midwinter day.

Meanwhile... 61 in Bettles, Alaska. Colder than the Arctic today!

My great grandparents lived on Alabama Hill in Bellingham my entire childhood. They had a big picture window looking west to the San Juans. and Olympics. Always kept a pair of binoculars on the table for the view. Good memories.

Last year Crater Lake had 6" of snow in April and May, this year 148".

Yes, most likely, there will probably be patches of snow in early August.

We went to Oregon one summer and took the Amtrak. The day we were supposed to leave, the train was delayed by 10 hours, so we got an extra night at a hotel in Klamath Falls drove to Crater Lake the next morning and that was the best part of our trip. Stunningly beautiful there.

That’s quite the swing. :lol:

Seems the GFS might be having cutoff problems in the LR again. Or at least might be over-emphasizing it, since none of the EPS members trap the ULL like that.

I've been waiting for this word to be used given the amount it was used during our recent summers with the heat. I'm totally glad you're the one that brought it up. 🤣

The SEA station has really been missing out on the precip the last week or so especially today.  Just a few miles north and places are well over an inch of rain and less than a mile south places are almost to 1/2” while SEA is sitting at .25”.

So far there has ben very little sun with spits of rainfall out here. Super wild for east of the cascades. Been hovering between 50-70 without exception.

Winds have been roided too. Summiting the bluffs, my buddy and I actually encountered 60-70mph headwinds right next to the vertical drops. Surreal weather. Swimming, let alone walking without a jacket, is firmly thrown out the window.

Looks like WA is the coldest state in relation to normal this month.  Looks like it will be colder than 2011 for the state as a whole according to the PRISM maps.

EDIT:  I just noticed this map is for max temps only, but the same statement applies to the overall temp average as well.

Yeah...the weather has sucked east of the Cascades.  That's the thing making me the most pissy this spring.  It's making getting to the mine a lot more dicey than usual.

glad the CZ stayed north as I began cleanup in the yard after my hiatus from the NW.  Crazy how fast nature takes over…..I have a bird now nesting  just outside my sliding back door.   Boy is he in for a rude awakening now that I’m back!

Yeah we are pretty water logged here! Glad to hear that you got some decent rainfall but I'm surprised how dry you guys have been this year. Though I guess you guys always run bit drier up there on average.

Much different story down here to the south. 10.87" at my house and 10.79" at MSU on the year as of yesterday. Well over 11" now I'm sure. Pattern doesn't look to change anytime soon either!

Yeah we are pretty water logged here! Glad to hear that you got some decent rainfall but I'm surprised how dry you guys you have been this year. Though I guess you guys always run bit drier up there on average.

Much different story down here to the south. 10.87" at my house and 10.79" at MSU on the year as of yesterday. Well over 11" now I'm sure. Pattern doesn't look to change anytime soon either!

Yeah we do run a little bit drier only 80 or so miles away lol.   I just cant get over how cold this spring has been,  the trees are just now starting to leaf out and that hard freeze/ frost we had a week or so ago killed a bunch of tree buds I am noticing now.  The creeks are just now starting to rise and get muddy.  If it stays in this  wet pattern, I wont complain, but we need just a little bit warmer temperatures, just a little bit....
