That’s f*cking lame. Heatwave never really ended down there it’s been much nicer up here the last 3 days. 

Yeah....the Pacific high has had more influence up here.  This trough coming down will get everyone cool tomorrow.

It’s only gotten to 71 with full sunshine here today. 

The low of 53 this morning was a really nice surprise.  First sub 60 low in a while and it was way below.

Pretty simple... comes down to proximity to the water with weak onshore flow.

Kind of funny how that cutoff low that delayed the big cooling is going to move inland next week and save us from getting another major heatwave.  Two decent troughs in less than a week assuming the one next week behaves as expected.  Pretty good by recent August standards.

Nice CAA going on in spite of still being full sunshine.  We need a lot more of this going forward this month.

You didn't get to experience the true heat and humidity with the last one.  You got off easy.

Send it! We just put up misters on the patio so hopefully they’ll get some mileage. Also hope they are put to good use next January for ornamental ice accretions.

Not really.    It was an enjoyable warm spell for him.   Cooled off every night... never got that hot.   You would have straight up loved it and would not mind a repeat either.

That would have been fun for the weather*, but a little isolating in all other aspects.

 * not to mention the access to wilderness basically right out one's front door

I’m privileged to have had the experience of living in many of the places I have fantasized about living. It’s meant moving around a fair bit, but I’m still glad to have had the experiences.

It's called clown range for a reason.

74/53 at KSEA. Almost a throwback kind of day with a cool min, morning clouds, and a mild but not very warm afternoon.

Yeah it put off a lot of smoke today.  It amazes me how well they are at keeping these things under control. Smoke has dissipated this evening and it is very pleasant.

Took this pic looking SW across Klamath Lake towards the McKinney fire. Tons of smoke in Southern Oregon. Quite a few fires burning on the rogue/Umpqua divide. Didn’t seem particularly intense. The one that blew up by Waldo Lake must have been on the other side of the plane.

One of the things on my bucket list is to spend a week up there in Utqiaġvik around the summer solstice and also spend another week during the winter solstice. I want to experience what it would feel like to have 24/7 daylight and also 24/7 night and try to have a normal day in the life. Having the sun so close to the horizon all day long would also be surreal. I would imagine I'd only get 2 -3 hours of sleep a night during summer but then probably I'll be sleeping most of the winter days with lots of naps.

Sulphide aerosols promote cooling. Most Plinian eruptions are rich in them, but not the Tonga eruption. That ejected mostly water vapor into the upper atmosphere. There really isn’t much to go on for such eruptions (this is the first one in recorded history), so the ultimate effects of this one are, pardon the pun, up in the air.

I went to Alaska in July 2019 (Not as far north as Utqiagvik though) and it was kind of hard to sleep well. Also it was very warm and there was a lot of wildfire smoke sadly.

I got to say, I am super excited to see these clouds rolling in and for some rain tomorrow!  Really missed it.  Temp only hit 69F here today, so it was cool, but sunny.  Clouds started rolling in within the past few hours.
