Great stuff. This is crucial to keep in mind, and really should be shouted from the highest roof top. I am printing out your “Most people like the stuff I like” t-shirt as we speak. Will ship it to you once I grab a Big Mac and large diet coke from McDonald’s and finish season 7 of The Bachelor.

Andrew generated this response on here with his 99% of people are wailing and despondent over the current weather BS.   Of course you loved his completely illogical posts and take offense at the logical responses.   Must stay in our tribes!   🙄

The hot weather does feel nice in its own way today, it's really not that serious. The problem lies in how much of this kind of weather we have seen in recent memory.

As for this present afternoon, it has been many months since we hit 90F, so it feels pleasant. Will get old soon enough though, I'm sure. Especially when the heat starts to get into the house...

Agreed. Today is not at all unpleasant at face value (although not great for strenuous physical activity like hiking). Any unpleasantness has more to do with the context of warmth in our climate in recent years, and the damage it has done to our region.

Dude, what’s your problem? My post was in response to the whole “99 percent of the region is weeping” or whatever BS was posted earlier. We can all enjoy some nicer weather in Spring without worrying about the ecosystem dying or the entire region going up in flames.

For the record, I like variety in Spring and would be concerned if we didn’t get any decent precip in June, but it’s way too early for the sky is falling narratives we see consistently by the usual suspects on here whenever a ridge pops up in the warm season.

I think my latest post was reasonable.

Interesting, thanks for sharing that. I guess I wasn’t thinking it was similar to June 2021 since while there are some daily records falling, it’s not absolutely shattering all-time records like that ridiculous event. Is it just due to the position of the max heights being a little further north vs. June 2021?

That's a good part of it. Also the weaker sun, higher moisture content at the surface, and the overall cooler airmass. Remember that those graphs are depicting deviations from average; averages that are much cooler right now than they will be at the end of June when that heat wave fried us in 2021. That airmass was significantly hotter--the hottest ever observed here. This today would be pretty decent by late July standards.

Was the perfect temp for working on the boat in the garage. Interior is now clean and mouse urine/feces clear! Smells much better.

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!

Now you choose to trust the 18z?

No... just mentioning that is what it shows.

91 at the non-Tim North Bend is pretty nutty.

As he pointed out last week, that area often overperforms in this type of pattern.

Snoqualmie Falls has hit 90+ as early as 4/19 (1934), and five times earlier than today. So not one of the more nutty observations out there, imo.

The 91 at KUIL stands out more to me.

EDIT: Nevermind, misread which North Bend you meant. Yeah, that's nuts.

I think he meant the Oregon one on the coast

Arrived PDX yesterday and hopefully home tomorrow to enjoy some more T-Storms!   What a way to come back home with temps in the 90s! 
Federal Way currently 85* 

Did a little storm chasing on my way home.  Nothing severe but I was under a Tornado watch in Cozad Nebraska. Also stayed in a unique Airbnb in the Ozarks to see if I could attract a tornado 🤣. Rain and Thunder sounded cool in the silo !

Looks like that's the all-time record high for May. The 2008 event only had highs in the low 80s there.

Old all time at KHQM May high was 87 in 2007, yesterday became the new one at 89 and if the 90 is recorded today, that will be the new all time high for May.
