D**n, how far is his house from the bay?

About 15 miles I think. Will have to check.

The offshore low was much deeper than this year.

Geopotential heights were lower back then. It wasn’t actually all that different, relatively speaking.

Can’t nitpick with this stuff. It’s a decent match. Whether that continues remains to be seen, of course.

There was a flip to a cooler/stormier pattern in October 1967. Will have to see if that happens this year.

2010 is an interesting analog. Has performed well in the WPAC and the upcoming pattern bears some resemblance.

I guess you have to call it a decent match when you look at the observed weather.  I think multi year Ninas carry more weight though.  At any rate I'm not a fan of the way this is playing out.

It’s late September, my friend. What happens now has no bearing on what will happen this winter. I’m certain you would’ve hated Sep/Oct 1988.

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.

September SOI looks like it will be the highest since 2010 and second highest of the century so far.  This is a very healthy Nina although you wouldn't know it by looking around.

The GFS is a dumpster fire until the final third of the run where it does turn pretty nice.

BTW...I'm sure this is the mode Jesse was waiting for me to get into.  One thing you can count on from this climate is to eventually be very disappointed at some point.  That is pretty much true no matter what kind of weather you like.

I'm fortunate to have a nice view from my hilltop location, but I sure pay a price in setups like this.

Currently 72º, which is just about the warmest I can find in the whole state of Oregon, except maybe for Medford.

Could be worse: my old location in L.A. (also on a hilltop) is looking at a couple of 97/75 days.

Fortunately, it appears that would be slightly outside of the 100 year 24 hour maximum expected precipitation for Puget Sound. Of course, October 20, 2003 significantly exceeded the expected one in a hundred year value at SEA (5.02") which I find hard to believe, but I guess it makes sense since it's only happened once in the last century.

On the other hand, if close to 40" does fall with Ian in Florida it should be right up there with what is meteorologically possible.

There’s something wrong with that map. Maximum PWATs here are much higher than up in PA/OH, as are our rainfall records.

In fact, Unionville MD holds the world record for most rainfall within 1 minute (1.23”).

I mean it's still showing upwards of 28-30" in a 24 hour period for your area which is not exactly a dry day. It comes from middle of the century Army Corps of Engineers data though so it could be outdated/incorrect.

Latest NHC track has it making landfall around Bradenton Beach as a category 3 and tracking right through Tampa Bay. Not good news at all.

 

It seems like models are moving away from previous solutions of stalling Ian west of Tampa for 2-3 days. I guess that's good.

06 ECMWF shifted a little west compared to the 00Z run.    But it basically stalls right over the Tampa area.

Ironic that we have been talking about a dead hurricane season and now we might have a Tampa version of Katrina.

Based on the projected temps through Friday... this will likely end up being the 3rd or 4th warmest September at SEA.   Right now the average temp is at 65.2 for the month but the next couple of days will likely bring it down to around 64.8 

September

1967 - 65.67

2020 - 65.52

2022 - 64.80 (?)

2014 - 64.77

2017 - 64.68

 

Assuming SEA ends up at 64.8 for September... that would put the July - Sept average temp at 68.0 which is the warmest ever for that period at SEA.    Interesting that 2015 is not even in the top 5 as that year peaked earlier.

July - September

2022 - 68.00 (?)

1967 - 67.73

2014 - 67.70

2017 - 67.42

2018 - 67.27

The top 10 also includes 2013, 2020, 2015, and 2019.     8 of the 10 warmest July - Sept periods have happened in the last 10 years.

The two years in the last decade that did not reach the top 10 are 2016 and 2021.    Those years ended up 15th and 13th respectively for the July - Sept period.   2016 and 2021 peaked earlier.    The warmest Apr-Jun period ever was in 2016.  And 2021 was 5th on the list for that period.

Another interesting stat for the traditional warm season (May-Sept)... 9 of the last 10 years have been warmer than the infamous warm season of 1958.

In order:

2015 - 65.45

2018 - 65.12

2013 - 64.86

2014 - 64.84

2019 - 64.70

2017 - 64.62

2020 - 64.31

1967 - 64.26

2021 - 64.06

2016 - 64.01

1958 - 63.89

 

And thanks to the near record cold May... 2022 is the one year that will not make that list!    This year will end up at 63.54 for the May - Sept period.   Obviously 2022 has been making up for lost ground fast since May but will still fall short.

Never ridden on the sit on top, but I did get to ride one of the standup models.  My godmother had a 3-5 acre lake in her front yard (her property was about 30-40 acres), and her son brought his jet skis out one weekend when I was about 8 or 9.  Fortunately (for me) it was his nephew and not me that figured out that when you cut power on those you lose steering.  We were racing across the lake, and there was a dock in the middle.  When he realized he was headed for it, he cut power and turned the handlebars.  Plowed right into it.  Filleted his leg open pretty good and destroyed the jet ski.

That lesson came in very handy many years later when I worked Marine Patrol in Oregon running jet boats up and down the Willamette. 

 

On the weather side of things, got down to 51 last night, and lots of mid-level smoke in the air this morning.

12Z GFS shifted a little to the south and east with Ian... looks like this run shows landfall around Fort Meyers and Cape Coral.    But the heaviest rain is squarely over the Tampa area.

12Z GFS is even farther west with the ULL cutting off over the weekend... which allows more activity to pass by to the north through BC and its quite a bit cooler for western WA than the 00Z run.

I began riding one when I was about 6yrs old. My uncle had two Kawasaki stand ups from the late 1970’s that I rode (back when nobody cared about boating laws and the lakes were a free for all lol) 

Now I really enjoy my sit down comfy rides!

Just an unreal amount of ridging on the 6Z GFS.  Rivers across Vancouver island are gonna be desperate for some rain by then.  

Multiple days in the high 80s for the Willamette Valley in early October. Looks East Bay-like.
