You call it wimpy. I call it perfection! The skies are beautifully blue. 

It was beautiful... just wimpy compared to how much warmer it was out here.

2019 is the closest we've come to a real cold summer this last decade. Just got trapped in the SW'lies way too often and it never cooled off at night.

Honestly I think a 2019 type summer is probably the best we can do from a cool summer lover’s perspective in this day and age.

Ironically the +ENSO/narrow Hadley Cell going into that summer is the reason it turned out that way.

I think what would help is a more +SPMM (at least relative to NPMM). For whatever reason, that -SPMM feature seems to be present in a lot of the hottest, nastiest summers in the West (and CONUS overall). And it’s been a staple of the past decade, particularly.

Marine layer really cleared out well except for along the WA coast.     And does not look too solid offshore so I am guessing tomorrow will be the same before the heat wave starts ramping up.

Marine layer paid off huge for me this morning!!!

That’s pretty crazy. It seems you have marine influence to keep you cool in the summer but manage to get anomalously old and snowy in the winter.

If weather.com verified, Portland would break the record for most days at or above 95 degrees in a row with 7. The previous record was 6 set in July 1941 and August 1981.

Hiked almost to the 3rd Burrough ( if your familiar with that hike) but forgot sunglasses in car.  Snow glare ( when I was in the snow field) was insane so had to turn around :(

77/59 day here with a morning marine layer burning off a little after noon. Beautiful day, a relic of what our midsummers used to be. Wish I could keep a day like this in a bottle for next week.

A wimpy 71 at SEA.   A perfect 77 in North Bend and 76 up here... with full sunshine since about noon.

You don't have a thermometer, no way you know for sure it was "76" there.

I hope this doesn't become the color of our daytime skies due to wildfires and the persistent heat. 

Really nice photos.  Thanks for sharing! :)

The upcoming heat pattern looks so odd at the 500mb level. There’s not even really a focused ridge, just a sprawling, amorphous area of high heights that sort of drifts over us and sits there for a week.

Maybe if we all point fans at it and aim east, it will blow away?  🤪

We have a thermometer.   But I go by the stations on either side of my house between 800-1,000 feet as we have discussed a million times.   It was 76 or 77 here today.  

I know it was too warm to eat dinner on the deck without positioning the umbrella just right so we could all be in the shade.    👍

Marine layer in no rush to come inland tonight.    Guessing just broken clouds in the morning and another stellar summer day on tap.

There was no marine layer up here today.  But there was a pleasant sea breeze.  Sunny and 75 this afternoon. 
 

Arctic front around day 10 looks delayed on the 0z GFS

There's literally no threat of you having to suffer through the inhumanity of a mostly cloudy day any time soon, Tim.

Like the vast majority of the past month, it's looking like near wall to wall sunshine every afternoon.

It was quite close... I was watching the weather up in Bellingham today and it was pretty cloudy in the Vancouver area for a good part of the day while it was sunny south of the border.

That is nice.    At least we get one month of the year where sun is the default.  That is not asking for much.  Last weekend was basically cloudy.    This weekend should be mostly sunny.

The only thermometer you have ever talked about owning is your car temp reading, that doesn't count.

We have standard thermometer as well.    It was 77 degrees at the station just down the road to the west and 76 degrees at the station just down the road to the east.   If you want to spend all night debating what it was specifically in my sunny backyard then go ahead!    I don't really care... it was lovely.    Probably 76.5   😀

Canadian does not show much of a break down through day 10.

GFS shows a break down and then the ridge pops right back up.

Left the bases loaded in the 8th... so close to breaking it open.     Would have been fun to see a go ahead grand slam with a sell out crowd.

The GFS is overdoing the heat so we’ll have to see. It called for a mid to upper-70s for SEA today and we were not even close. Euro was more accurate. 
 

I think we shave off 3-4 degrees to what the GFS is showing. Would still be in the 90s for next week.

I knew the streak would come to an end this series. I was hoping to at least get to 15. Oh well! Focus on winning this series now

came out very flat after the All star break and no Julio hurts.
