I can relate with this. But at least I live around here ;)

I b*tch in the eastern thread too. But lots of people live in the Plains on that forum and get awesome weather all the time, so harder to relate sometimes. ;)

Btw it looks like we’re having a big family gathering in Everett next summer! And possibly another excursion in Leavenworth as well. Haven’t been up there since 2019, am looking forward to it already.

Only time I’ve ever experienced non-tropical weather in July during the last 20+ years was in the NW. Would be nice to steal another few weeks!

Some people work outside and like doing other things outside too. You can gear up for rain and cool weather, not a lot you can do when it’s blistering heat besides maybe swim.

As I always like to say, you can always add layers for the cold, but you can only get so naked before the neighbors start calling the cops!

Definitely disappointing to be looking at another potential heatwave right after we just got done with a significant one. I figured we would get some more 90s considering we just got into august but a little too early to get worried yet. Definitely gonna warm up but maybe we will avoid +90s this time…atleast here in western WA.

I never really understood people hating the heat (especially when it's relatively temporary) while having AC in their home.

A big part of that statement is while having AC.  When you don't it really blows.  Then you have people like me who just like below normal temps in general.  In this case it was 6 straight days of 90s.  That's a long stretch.

Then you have the fact that almost all of the glacier melt on NW peaks can be attributed to recent hot summers.

It was really incredible!  Just short of an Arctic front blasting through. 😁

Thanks for checking 👍

Shelton is -13 vs yesterday.

I was so ready for this cool down.  I was getting very crabby.

So far we’re ahead of 2021 as of 8/1 for hot days but we’ve had less warm days overall. I’m thinking we get another +90 and a couple +85s with the next round of warmth though so I’ll compare again by 8/15.
2021          2022

+80s-22   +80s-14

+85s-8     +85s-9

+90s-3     +90s-7

I meant your PMs. Are you having short term memory issues lately?

No.  Just other issues.

Now we're going to have another major and very long heatwave then...

I will check.  Almost afraid to after that one.

Also...I think most people would call the 11 degree drop impressive.

11 degree drop in one hour during a marine air push in the middle of the night isn't exactly breaking news...

At least the GFS kicks that stupid cutoff low inland for another push of cool air next week.  Can't hope for much better in August.

Especially on the back end of an historically long heatwave. The “crash” the next few days is nothing. Any sort of 500mb driven dynamism in our summer climate seems to be a thing of the past.

Portland could make a run at their 100+ record this year.

After a very cool start to summer in Tahoe this last week has been very hot. This feels like the longest stretch of warm nights/mornings that I have experienced up here. Usually during heatwaves we will have 1-3 nights that stay in the 50's and then it will drop back into the 40's. We are going on 9 days of lows in the 50's which is very unusual.

Today looks like it should be low 70s there.

As an example my company is currently deploying a new Datacenter in the SODO area and we contracted a unionized company to do some outdoors construction work and they were all off last week due to the heat. They didn’t have to in the fall and winter.

Seen more monarch butterflies this summer than I can remember in recent years. 

Weird. My wife said the same thing yesterday completely out of the blue.

Unlike farting cows, they do not pose an apocalyptic threat, so it's actually sad when they become endangered.
