It seems like the rain and cooler air is never gonna come.  Heat forever in the PNW now...

In all seriousness, the smoke is back for the majority of the Puget Sound and parts of Western Oregon.  Here are some maps and satellite images.  Most locations are now at moderate with some unhealthy thrown in.  Don't expect conditions to improve until we finally get this blasted heat away, some rain, and onshore flower.  We've been promised rain for many weeks now, and it never comes as forecasted.  

I'm grumpy about this.

Late onset of the rains, abyssmal mushroom season.

The mushroom season is really the most important thing... collecting fungus in the forest is all we care about.  😀

I see people complaining about aspects of winter or lamenting a possible dud...we haven't had a sub-freezing high here since the 2016-17 winter. No Arctic episodes since that point...none.

Somehow I don't feel like this area is due for a dud. We've never gone this long without an outright Arctic air intrusion.

Snow on the other hand has been plentiful. Very wet and heavy snow but I have enjoyed the fuckk out of it. It's just weird as hell to have gone this long without a true Arctic event.

Yeah I’m trying to talk myself into it today!

Low clouds are already surging inland.  Tomorrow should be quite a bit cooler.

1967!!

 

The thing is the 500mb pattern that brought the hot September in 1967 was totally different than this year.  That year there were many more hot days than this year.  This September's warmth is mainly from high mins the first half of the month.

That was only a first year Nina also.

ECMWF shows patchy low clouds getting into Seattle for a couple hours tomorrow morning but also shows 79 for a high in the afternoon... which is the same high temp it showed for today.     It seems like it would have to be a little cooler if low clouds make it into Seattle in the morning even if they are gone by 9 or 10 a.m.

Decent snowstorm in January 1968 though. ~5" of snow and sustained east winds of 30mph at one point here from the COOP station.

The interesting thing to see is whether we will come out of this with a predominately cold pattern or a wet one.

The winter was ok until the ugly torch in Feb.  I would consider it a disappointment, but not a total bust.

11.6" of snow is pretty good in my opinion. And a temp of 23 in mid April. Obviously the next winter's 39" was much better though!

I think 1967 is a decent 500mb match, actually.

What if its just normal with rain on many days but nothing extreme and some dry days mixed in and temps around average?

Quite a shift east from the 12z EPS. A lot of members now take Ian across the Florida peninsula. Hopefully we can get some solid model agreement on the 00z runs tonight so we can shrink down the cone.

Is it looking like Ian will bottom out as a Cat 3 or a Cat 4?

Here’s some truly incredible PDX weather stats of late:

No high temp below 70 degrees for 98 days. 

Not been below 50 degrees for 127 days. 

<.25’’ of rain in the past 99 days.

58 out of the last 63 days have been warmer than normal including a streak of 40 in a row.

Hottest week ever in July, hottest month ever in August, hottest September ever.
