.82 in North Bend and probably not much more here.   Hoping the system tomorrow can deliver an inch of rain out here.

 

Rainfall total of exactly 1.00 in North Bend since yesterday afternoon.   Last batch of showers moving through now.

It’s kind of an odd map. Not sure what the big blue circle from the Portland area to Salt Lake City is.

Contour line depicting the boundary where cooler than normal conditions become the most likely option compared to normal/warmer.

In this case there's a donut hole in the west where cooler than normal conditions are not selectively favored.

Looks like Spokane’s official station (GEG) could hit 50 for the first time since early November today. They are currently 49.

A spring like temp profile throughout the region today, one of the first days areas in the Columbia Basin have been significantly warmer than the west side. Up to 63 in Pasco on the hour, 59 in Hermiston, 69!! in Hermiston.

That number is so large it is incomputable. Must be a sensor error.

Ah, must’ve been why he chose that map.

Ended up with a chilly 47/39 day here so far. All day rain, heavy at times, with a sunrise high and early afternoon low. Picked up close to 1.25” precip.

There are some moderate showers moving overhead now even though the main front has moved east, so that should add to today’s totals.

Seems like 74-75 ended up being a decent analog.

For our place in Twisp the rainy spring really didn't get going until late April I thought. It was pretty dry in March. I think Spokane area may have had a wetter March than us but not sure how your area did. 

We did really well. I think March was normal so we planted early. Then we had a week where it snowed daily for 6-7 days ending the day before Easter. We had 2 or three inches on our wedding anniversary in mid April which might be the only time it ever happens. After that week we had lots and lots of rain esp in May and June. Didn't really have any 90 days or so until around my wife's mid July bday when summer kicked in.

 The local fire agencies kept saying they'd catch sparks or small fires that struggled to ignite due to the high precipitation. We only had one semi moderate fire within 50 miles of us and on the other side of the Snake River whereas 2021 we had three fires within maybe 30 miles of us and around the same time though we weren't even in a Stage 1 set officially that year.

Getting some rain outside now. Looks steady. I might need to out my rain guage outside this week now that the really cold days are generally over.

California Drought

3/13/23 11:02 PM
UPDATE
*Data valid as of March 7th, 2023.
Overall the drought situation throughout the state is much improved.

 
The weekly change tables since January 3rd really shows the improvement. The only area where there has been any positive or increased area has been the [none] category where no drought or even dry areas are detected. *Note the dramatic week to week decrease in the D1-D4, D2-D4, D3-D4, and D4 drought categories.
 
The overall population affected has also dramatically decreased since January 3rd. Total population now experiencing no drought has increased from 26,441 now to 5,893,501. Since January 10th those experiencing Moderate to Extreme Drought has decreased substantially from 36,929,795 down to just 5,580,157.
 
Remember, this isn't even factoring in any precipitation that has fallen over the past 6 days and from the coming major storms. It will be interesting to see the changes by the end of March. We should continue to see several areas now under D1-D2(Moderate to Severe Drought) whittled away. Great news!

Chilly morning. Down to 28, looks like SLE is at 30. 
 

Yesterday was 43/32 with 2” of snow. 
 

Today marks 3 weeks of snow cover.

Our soil is not abnormally dry here. Quite the opposite.

8” on the deck where I have my yard stick. But as you can see there is bare ground under the tree in the front yard. Down to 27 now, 14/14 on freezes this month.
