89 at Troutdale.

Another east wind favored location!    @SilverFallsAndrewmight want to investigate the possibility that those areas can be warmer in certain patterns and not imply people are lying about it being warm.   ;)

Your area is definitely protected from the east wind.    Hard to believe it didn't get to 80 there on 4/28 when it was in the upper 80s in the Snoqualmie Valley.  

Looks like SEA notched another 80+ day today.  North Bend has been stuck at 85 for a couple hours.    Must have maxed out the potential for today. 

Yeah out of all the towns in the Snoqualmie valley it seems Duvall is the coolest. Monroe it’s at 81. Carnation is at 83 and so is Fall city. Though down at lower elevations of Duvall it is 80 right now. 79.6 IMBY still. There’s has also been a slight north wind going on here throughout the day.

Mt Si golf course restaurant... best spot to eat in the valley on a summer evening.

Nice. We used to like Druids Glen when we were in Maple Valley. Kind of spotty on food and service but can’t beat the view on a sunny evening.

Water temp on Lake Sammamish up to 63... went up 3 degrees since yesterday.   Should be into upper 60s by early next week.   Maybe 70 by the end of the week.

This spell is going to make bodies of water a lot warmer than normal if the rest of the Summer is somewhat warm.

Welp the left half of my face and neck is sunburned to hell and the right half is white as snow. Was driving with the top down for awhile with the sun on my left and guess that’s all it took.

It’s bad enough that I’m considering intentionally burning the other side to even it out. 😂

Hey I was there this evening too out on that rubber patio. Golfed with some clients earlier in the day who live out there. I golf Snoqualmie ridge on Monday for the Providence golf tourney.

Might have some lightning to contend with on Monday afternoon.

No fall last year, no spring this year. What a disappointment here in our climate crisis. Looks like yet another record warm month on tap. I feel bad for us.

Looks like PDX has a significant issue with their sensor reading warm recently. Might be time for another email @Cascadia_Wx

Ya I noticed that. I don’t like golfing in the heat let alone the humidity on Monday. I wouldn’t mind some clouds and showers and a lightning show.

In another week or two I take the top off the jeep for the summer and my left arm will get burned driving around town with it hanging over the half door. sometimes I remember to sunscreen just my left arm. lol

Vancouver also hit 90 yesterday, and Troutdale hit 89

Yeah, Andrew is just being a huge weenie about the heat. It makes sense that they hit 90. 
 

But, I do understand his emotions as it’s depressing to see our climate get so hot.

Such a weird setup. Usually if your area torches in spring so do we. We are headed for our 7th consecutive below average month. We are currently running -14F on high temps for May. It was 28F this morning and my heater is still running. I hope this upcoming summer and fall go back to a more normal pattern but I doubt it.

The usual suspects can downvote this all they want... but I still have a feeling Tonga is playing a role in making our seasons more extreme and abrupt.   No way to prove it... just a feeling.   Last summer and fall was surreal and it is starting to feel that way again.   But maybe June will be totally different.

Have any snowpack left? 

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

Thank you for being understanding, I am definitely in the denial/anger stage right now, I'll get to acceptance in a few days... Every dang year...
