DCA running a whopping +.2!

A negative departure there would have been hilarious. But alas, all good things must come to an end. :(

 

That anomaly is gonna go berserk at the last minute.

That looks colder than normal.

 

I thought normal was 110/95 with a dewpoint either side of 100?

Haha. You’re talking about North Bend, right?

 

My condolences on the -45*F anomalies this week. :P

In other news, the 12z ECMWF has some impressively cool afternoons for PDX later this week.

Side note... the 4th of July "high" shown there is actually just the high through 5 a.m. that day.

 

It will be in the 80s that day if it has the 500mb pattern right.

Yes, I’m aware (240hrs from 12z today = 12z on 7/4).

 

That’s why I didn’t mention the last day. :)

Was not really meant for you... just for clarification.

So stupid how -1 on the high and -1 on the low still averages to 0 because of the idiotic rounding procedure.

And OLM.. -2 on the high, +2 on the low, but +1 overall. It’s like they actively seek positive departures.

SEA ended up with -0.7 on NOWdata.

 

Looks like the OLM departure number was corrected to -1. Or -1.4 on NOWdata. Conspiracy over!

And the daily departures are not meaningful in terms of the monthly departure.    They don't just add up the daily departures.

Could finally have a negative departure @ DCA today. Still only 73*F as of 130pm.

 

Crapload of rain..3.3” fell in just 1 hour. Between 5-6” in nearby areas. That’s a lot of water.

Now approaching 50 days above 90*F @ DCA. Probably less than 10 days under 90*F since late June. ☹️

 

Looks like many more to come as well. I think 60+ is within reach this year.

What's the record?

I think (for the modern DCA location) it’s 67 days in 2010 but I’m not 100% sure about that.

 

But there’s not much variance. Even “cool” summers such as 2013 and 2014 rack up 25+ days above 90*F.

Zero math has been done on my end.

I was kidding, man. All I know is that I probably came in last. #UHIfail

Primary reason for my busts..nighttime lows. It has been two months since DCA fell below 65*F. The 7th longest stretch on record. Might finally happen tonight!

 

Edit: Yay, just barely did it. Fell to 64*F last night, which is the coldest low since June 23rd & just the 10th sub-70*F low since the summer solstice. Lol..

Congrats to Shawinigan. Seconded re: appreciation for the quick scoring.

 

I didn’t do as terrible in the PNW as I thought I would. Turns out it was DEN and DCA (lol) that killed me. For some reason DCA has been running exceptionally warm at night lately. Not sure what happened @ DEN. Probably just a typical pattern bust.

I ended up too cold at all the PNW stations.   My cold bias got me again.   ^_^

 

Predicting a warm summer across the board was clearly the way to go!

So was it a wet and gloomy summer, a perfectly normal summer, or a warmer than average torch.

 

Your narrative seems to switch just about every other week depending on the context. ^_^
