The potential weekend drizzlefest has failed to materialize so far.   Its been dry here all day too.  Things are already trending better.   👍

Interesting.  The models seem to be picking up on a mostly dry cold front around day 10.  A nice refresh of below normal temps.

It appears WI and WV are kind of the oddballs.  I actually do agree with WV though.

My big takeaway here is that there are large portions of the country where people view videos on how to grill hot dogs.

I must have missed something?  A refresh of below normal temps?  We haven't had a single sunny stretch in almost two months and certainly no one on this blog would say we've been anywhere near normal or even above.

Are you jinxing an upcoming dry and warm stretch?

I've seen how you jinx things in the winter.

Delete your post........LOL! :)

There are of course, good and bad hot dogs. Not sure if that will change your mind though.

After yesterdays wet had to just get outside regardless.  Headed to Mount Si in North Bend for a training hike.  Was expecting the worst at the top but ceiling broke for 15 minutes. Even this wet, moist , depressing and dreary weather can be beautiful!  Trying to look on the bright side  👀. Lol, I also felt like I found Mordor 😱

A bit too verdant for Mordor. Ithilien, maybe ;)

Looks like we go into a pretty torchy pattern starting early next week to me. The pattern you are wishing for with wall to wall sun and below normal temps is pretty much impossible in the summer in our climate.

64/48 day here. Partly to mostly cloudy with a couple nice downpours in the late morning and early afternoon. Picked up .20” precip.

Looks like we will move into a much warmer pattern starting right around the solstice. At least days will be starting to get shorter at that point.

Guessing even a lot of the cool, fairly dry summers back then were a lot cloudier than some like to imagine.

Ok, I hadn’t heard of the word verdant ever before today. My dad said it several times and we all gave him crap for continuing to use it. Now I see you use it….was there some word of the day somewhere that verdant was it today or yesterday or something???

PDX actually did record sunshine data from 1950 to 1995, and it's kind of a shame US stations don't do this anymore. Places elsewhere in the world still record sunshine hours.

The cloudiest year in that span was 1955, which had 1596 hours of sunshine (about what London or Forks typically gets in a year). The sunniest was 1987, which had 2872 hours, comparable to eastern Montana or most of the Southeastern US. Probably not unreasonable to assume the Rogue Valley gets that in a typical year either? 

Here's the data for yourself: https://www.weather.gov/media/pqr/climate/ClimateBookPortland/pg136.pdf Seems to indicate that the good ol' days were in fact pretty cloudy.

The sunniest year in both July and August was 1984... which happened to be the most persistently rainy April - June period ever in my area until 2022 took the crown.  Looks like it was a quite a flip in that year... hoping for something similar this year. 

Also interesting that the sunniest July and August was back in the mid 80s and not during any of the recent summers.   And the sunniest year was 1987.    Maybe the 80s weren't so gloomy around here after all.

I don't think it's even a modern phenomenon. Our coldest summer months historically have been quite cloudy for the most part which you can determine fairly easily looking at diurnal ranges, and usually have a lot of days with rain at least by the standards of our summer climo. 

There are exceptions of course, but very sunny and notably cool summer months have always been rare.

Diurnal ranges is a great method.    I will say that 1951 appeared to be a fairly sunny summer around here.    There were lots of days with chilly low temps and warm afternoons.

So my Everett station seems to be having an issue.  It's apparently 0F degrees and cloudy. :D Real temp is 56F.

The 7 day forecast is ok.  Thankfully it doesn't look too hot.  Sad to see so much sunshine.  Hope the clouds stay to some degree.  I already miss the rain.  But it was a good stretch we had.  :)

HAPPY FATHERS DAY!

Speaking of hot dogs... this is the weenie post of the day.

Similar to saying it looks like its going to snow right before Christmas but at least those sun angles will be getting higher then and that will make a difference.
