Looks like you guys are getting your turn for late June magic!

Lol. I’ve grown apathetic to it. Finally reached the acceptance phase of denial.

One of these next few summers will be a transition to El Niño and we’ll get our turn at (relative) bliss.

Jealous... its dark and gloomy here again.    Although this is payback for Saturday when it was flipped.

I consider the big crash following the warm day on 4/7 to be when things really got going. Good memories 🥰

looking forward to some action on Friday evening!

Friday: Confidence is increasing that areas along the WA/ID border
will see the best chance for strong to severe thunderstorms. A
cutoff low will move towards the Oregon coast, spinning up moisture
and energy into the area due to a southernly flow. MUCAPE values are
forecasted to be between 1000 and 2000 J/kg which is significant for
this area. Dew points Friday afternoon will also reach into the 60s
with temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s, along with a
significant amount of atmospheric shear. PWATs are also forecasted
to be extremely high on Friday for this time of year with values
showing between 1 to 1.5 inches. But what does that mean? Basically,
that heavy to torrential rain will be a threat with any storm that
forms. We will keep a close eye on Friday as if the ingredients
continue to line up, we could see strong to severe storms that have
a northernly track. The best timing for storms seems to be later
than what normally occurs with the late afternoon into late evening
showing the best potential. Areas along the Canadian border have a
chance of thunderstorms but there is a limited amount of the energy
needed to sustain strong to severe storms but heavy rain still
remains a concern.

Yeah who knew that this would go on for this long! I figured the troughing would be a blip on the radar then back to what we’ve seen in recent springs but boy was I wrong. Shoulda known we were in for it when that super deep troughing showed up in mid April.

It's snowing again on the summit at Crystal as well. LOL maybe they could have squeezed one more weekend of skiing in. They only had 158 days to be open!

Also, you all can stop squabbling over our terrible/wonderful weather patterns and blame me for our continued cooler trends. Bought an ungodly expensive water-cooled mattress paid last month in anticipation of hot weather and have been setting my bed to a delightfully brisk 55 degrees ever since. Oddly, we seem to be stuck around that temp, and the PNW is the only place not broiling in their own sweat. Coincidence? I think not. And before you ask, I will not be setting it any higher so we are stuck with a non-summer this year and forever more. Get used to it.

Just waiting to pay hard for this in July. Got that feeling that once the calendar flips tye weather will too... Summer has been cursed. Hope I'm wrong, because I've been loving this Spring.

It's not farfetched to think July could be like 2010 or 2011.  The million dollar question is can we pull off a cool August.  That month has been on an insane roll.

First half of July has a chance to be warm IMO. Should be some kind of CCKW/MJO reaching the West-Pacific.

Looks brief, though. I’d wager against any significant and/or prolonged heat.

And by mid/late July there’s a renewed bout of IO convection/West-Pacific subsidence that would favor another cycle of -PNA/troughing, should that come to fruition.

I certainly know it's true this year... but for the last decade you have been saying every warm spell that comes into sight will not last long.  😀

Anyways... early July is a good time for something other than cold troughing and rain.

Lol, actually not true at all. If you recall I predicted significant late summer heat in 2018. Also forecasted a blowtorch in 2015. And a mild/wet summer in 2019.

...Not to mention the Summers of the aughts weren't exactly all that chilly either. We haven't had a truly cold summer since 2001.

Not completely true depending on your definition of cold and your location. For average summer high temperature OLM was basically just as cold in 2011 (and to a slightly lesser extent in 2010 and 2012) to 2001. All those summers were 2.5-3 degrees below average for highs.

BLI average summer high temp was colder in 2008 than 2001 and actually even the infamous summer of 1954 only had high temps half a degree lower than 2008.

For SEA the summer of 2001 had an average high temp 2 degrees colder than anything in the 2008, 2010-12 range, but that's really the only station where that is the case. Renton, Sand Point, PAE and basically every other station I glanced at in W WA has had a top 10 if not a top 5 coldest summer within the last two decades.

Obviously the coast is not the I-5 corridor, but looking at NWS stations and basing on average high temperature, 2010 was actually Hoquiam's coldest summer on record (since 1953) and 2008 was Quillayute's coldest summer on record (since 1966).

For those scoring at home... July 4th in 2001 was sunny and 77 degrees at SEA.    Back when every 4th of July supposedly featured 55-degree drizzle.

The worst July 4th on record at SEA was probably the 61/56 day with 0.57" of rain in 1992. Although I'm sure some would argue that 92/59 dry day in 2015 was worse (especially with the threat of firework induced fires).

I will probably be in Klamath Falls for the Fourth. I don't think there's been a single washout Fourth of July ever recorded there. They haven't even had precip on that day since 1986. I guess the closest would be the high of 62 on 7/4/1977 (which had 0.01" precip).

I believe in 92 we put a tarp up on the deck and huddled under it at the lake to watch the show.

That is quite interesting... I had been meaning to compare other sites but never got around to it. It seems urbanization is killing off "cold summer" potential as nights grow increasingly warmer in the city. High temps are a better barometer (for lack of a better word) for representing the overall chilliness of a season nowadays, and that stat clearly shows a smoother, more believable upward trend over the decade, with historically significant cold in that department from late March onwards this year.

Lows on the other hand have been on the cold side, but not quite so notable at KSEA.

Yeah, I decided to focus on high temps because I knew UHI would impact the lows and in terms of what people actually care about during the summer, I think the general public notice a high that's 10 degrees below normal a lot more than a low that's 10 degrees below normal.

Obviously this can be taken to extremes, but few people except the weather nerds would notice if all summer the lows at SEA stayed below 50, but everyone would notice if every day stayed below 70. This is less true for truly extreme low temperatures such as super high temps in the summer (a bunch of mid 60s lows gets everyone riled up) or cold temps in the winter (people would probably notice if the low temp at SEA was in the 20s all January).

Soils are now nearly record wet in NW Oregon. Drought concerns are basically nonexistent for most of OR and WA.

That gradient around the OR/CA border is still pretty crazy though.

It’s just waiting in the wings to creep back north once atmospheric circulation becomes favorable again.

Good Lord... that is not the point.   Neither are our normal summer weather.    One extreme or the other.

That’s gonna get a lot redder over the Plains and Southeast, too.

Something that surprised me was that February 1989, while much briefer, put up more impressive temps at PDX than December 1990. Neither of them had much snow here though. I've heard more about 1990, so I thought it would've been the colder one. I guess the sustained cold with 1990 with 7 consecutive subfreezing highs made it more memorable? Also, how did PDX record a high of 15 with no precipitation? That's crazy to think about

Question for those of you that enjoy cool and wetter spring and summer weather: would you be ok if we just plain didn’t get a summer this year and the weather we’ve had so far in June continued into July and August? Is this simply to “make up” for the touchiness of recent summers? I thought this weather was refreshing at first and a nice change of pace, but I gotta admit it’s getting to me. Maybe my memory is too short but the touchiness of last summer seems like a long time ago now and I’m ready for at least a week of 70s and sun, which has been too much to ask.
 

It’s also funny hearing everyone in real life b!tching all the time and then coming on here and finding over half the forum loves it.

Touchiness or torchiness?   Or both?   😀

Obviously some people on here would love it to stay in the 50s and 60s and be cloudy all summer.  Every summer.  Whatever.   They come together here to celebrate their similar views because they certainly know that most people in the real world are not happy with this weather.    And I will say that most people around here in the real world don't care for heat either.  Me included.  But for some reason... the only choices offered are melting in heat and breathing smoke or rarely seeing the sun and have it perpetually raining or about to rain.    The middle ground is never a choice.

yea. it's been sunny enough at my place, almost every day there's at least a few hours of direct sunlight, even on the cloudiest days. not only is sfc mixing maximized this time of year, but the sun is simply above the horizon for a much larger portion of the day, so statistically speaking it's more likely to fit a period of sunshine in there.

outdoor activities are very enjoyable. the heating and water bills are down. there haven't been any heat deaths.

No I do not want it to be cloudy and wet the entire summer. Our regular climo summer is pretty amazing that’s all I can hope for. It’ll come soon enough.
