August 2022 PNW Observations and Discussion - 1956 Redux!1!!1!


Recommended Posts

12Z EPS... except for a few hours on Saturday it shows persistent warmth but nothing too extreme.   Likely going to be a temporary break down late next week in between ridges but probably warmer than normal even then.

I have zero sympathy for the man who has ready access to jetski and boat at two different bodies of water, one of which is almost guaranteed to be hot. Eat sh*t randy hahaha!!

Tim, on the other hand, will be stuck on lake sammamish with 80 degree water and 75 degree air temps. Prayers up!

Got chased off the beach by a strong thunderstorm today.

50mph outflow sent dozens of beach umbrellas flying into the ocean. Then 10mins later a barrage of CTG bolts sent people screaming and running for cover.

I’m on my 7th Long Island and am loving life! :lol:

And some of those hit f**king close. Like within 100 yards. Just bombarded the beach, simultaneous lightning and thunder. If I wasn’t  sloshed I’d probably be pretty unnerved right now. 😂

1985 only had 3.4" of snow in Portland while 1955 had 8.4" so I'd personally take 1955 for this area. And 1955 had 6 highs 30 or below in a row!

Okay.  You can have ‘55. I’ll take ‘85. We had 39” of snow. And it stayed below freezing for 12 consecutive days.

I used to have access to 3 different bodies of water back when my mom lived on Moses Lake, so being down to 2 is rough. 😔

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

Careful. Dewey has probably been tracking you and waiting for a time when you are drunk and vulnerable. Hope your chastity belt is locked up.

Both of those winters had big snow and cold for the Sierra in Nov and then big floods as well. I will take 1955.

Spectacular pics!    You could really be a professional photographer.   Also loved that nest cam capture you posted earlier.   Do you have the time lapse loop from this morning?

Will take a look tonight if I have time.  I’ll see how the clouds looked.  Thanks for the compliment on the photos. Been having a blast being out and about.

Did you dig down at all to check the depth of the permafrost layer?

November 1955 might be the most comparable cold airmass to June 2021 in terms of sheer magnitude. A high of 21°F in Seattle in mid-November is almost unimaginable, yet it happened.

You should go over and pee in the rain gauge and give them a record wet August.

Those buildings and asphalt look awfully close to the sensor. Encroaching UHI...

We’ve been at the Sea Island beach club for the past few days. Can’t believe how much money I’m spending. 😭 

Gonna have to detox big time when I get home. Been drinking way too much this summer, my tolerance is through the roof again.

Going out to ocean shores this weekend. Almost wish I was going during the heatwave to avoid the warmth back at home…but should be a good time either way. 

We have reservations in Neah Bay at the end of this month.  Super excited.  The Makah tribe has had the entire res closed since the beginning of the plague.  It just opened last month I think.

The models are actually toning down the heat for next week.  Shocking given how these things have been playing out this summer.

That's cold for just about anywhere in the US outside of AK for mid November.

And November 1955 was particularly hard on the native trees... probably similar to June 2021.

When I lived in K-Falls, a high in the upper 30's was considered cold in November. Every few years there'd be a
sub-freezing high occurring in late November. Looks like their last one at KLMT was 30 on 11/29/2019. 

There's always a day or two in November in the 60's there, so having 21 in Seattle in the late Fall is really impressive.
