Did a little deeper dive with regard to surrounding stations and I’m starting to wonder if the recent numbers as Newport might be a little suspect. Thoughts?

You mean it might not actually be colder than Iqaluit at Newport? What ever led you to jump to that crazy conclusion?

Yup.  You guys killed it down there.  The Puget Sound region has been making up for it ever since.  We have had a number of really nice events here.

PDX and SEA's numbers don't seem that representative in 2016/2017, they both had 11.2". Downtown Portland had 15.5". How representative of the Puget Sound were SeaTacs numbers for snow in Feb 2019? 20+" in that one month!!

Location: Bethany, OR at about 250'

Snowfall:

     2018/2019: 3.7"

     2017/2018: 5.5"

     2016/2017: 18"

     2014/2015: 0"

Tim thinks that if it rains at all during the month it equates to "winter".

Those 75 degree showery days in early June sure felt like winter. Brrrrr!!!!!!!

Yes... 40s and 50s with rain all blends together.   Seems obvious that we don't have very well defined seasons.     When its 52 and raining in October... 48 and raining in January... and 55 and raining in April it all blends together to most people.  But go ahead and pretend otherwise.  ;)

Its the nature of our climate.   There are usually two distinct seasons... rainy and dry.

The 93 degree rain I saw in late July was sure a nice little throwback to winter!

Hilo and Windward Hawaii have 12 months of winter!

2003 was pretty incredible.  Late heatwave, MAJOR October flood, and then a late October / early November Arctic outbreak.  The cold was so sudden it turned the leaves black here.  The only time I've ever seen that.

Was my first year at WWU.  I remember going to a Halloween party out in Alger and everyone was freezing their asses off.  The party was huge and most people were outside huddled around the outdoor heaters.

I wonder what it would take to have Weatherbell predict a below normal winter for the NW?  If a third year Nina with +QBO isn't enough it's probably not possible.

Bastardi def has an east coast bias in his predictions.  I actually really like their approach with the Pioneer model.  I haven't reupped my sub yet as I really don't care about summer weather.  Give me gobs of snow and purple 360hr snowfall maps though.

It was cloudy all morning here... but now the sky is 90% blue with just a few clouds and the sun is shining.   Onto a gorgeous weekend with no smoke.

We moved to Bellingham from the Willamette Valley July 2003, so that was our first Halloween up here, and yeah, my kids were pretty miserable.  My wife and I were also pretty miserable trying to figure out how to fit coats and sweaters underneath Halloween costumes.  Our kids were about 12, 6 and 3 at the time.  That was our second big reminder that we were not living in the WV any more.

 

The first reminder was (since we moved here July 1)  how incredibly bright it still was at 9-10 PM at night.  We would be driving around exploring, look at the time and see it was 8:30-9 and we still had to get home get the kids bathed and in bed!

Bastardi is as much of a climate denying Rube as Maue

 

both are turrible

I'm not sure if he is just saying it's not provable how much of the change is natural cycle and how much is man caused.  People have to remember we have been coming out of a little ice age.  That kind of skews things to look more dramatic than they might really be.

The small piece of land just south of Nova Scotia under the strongest winds is Sable Island National Park Reserve. It's a remote barrier sandbar that's home to around 500 wild horses and a large gray seal colony. It looks like a really beautiful place but it might never be the same after Fiona.

The last two times we have gone have been in the fall and it is really nice after Labor Day IMO. Especially during the week, things can get pretty crowded in the summer sometimes.

When we stayed in October 2019 there was some non-sticking snow in Bend and a nice dusting on the pass. It was around the 10th I believe.
