It looks like the fact I was abstaining in protest really got some legs! I just couldn’t log in for several days after the sealed indictment was handed down.   Prison really changes a man, though. I

1 year ago. This is the night we had thunder snow and about 4 inches in 1 hour. Very cool moment with my son as we were standing outside watching the lightning light up the snow flakes. I really made

Wind really picking up. Should pick up further south along the sound as that low is still staying strong and headed down Vancouver island right towards the souther tip which is the sweet spot for a puget sound windstorm. Not a common trajectory for wind storm here so interesting to see how this plays out as it heads south.

Probably some of the strongest winds I’ve seen here before. Nearby stations showing sustained winds 40-45 with higher gusts.

 

The wind field is moving north with the passage of the low, right?

I was assuming the wind would be increasing from the north as the low is moving south. But the wind gradients could be strengthening from the south too as it wraps around the Olympics. Similar to how precip fills in around the sound.

It was awesome earlier this evening as the squall line moved through.

 

10 minutes of rain, totaling .06".

 

Wind was strong enough to blow some of the rain under my patio cover and slightly dampen the couch cushions.

 

February just graded out to an A+ because of tonight.

Maybe a minute or two of moderate rain, but that was it. Better luck next time, I suppose! Maybe the next windstorm will be more favorable to this area.

Winters been pretty meh for most of us puget sounders excluding the far north posters. It’s been even worse south of chehalis unfortunately. There’s been some modest weather excitement in the Puget sound area this winter atleast.

Temperatures are dropping guys...

 

This February might work out after all!

At this rate it will be in the upper 20's by sunrise. Might be a high cloud shocker though and keep maximum radiational cooling from realizing the potential of this airmass.

 

Either that or the smoke from the raging wildfires near North Bend, WA

These post frontal showers are way more intense than that weak front earlier.

I just got off the phone with the NWS and they said we only see that kind of thing once a year at best.

i can’t believe you guys aren’t excited about the mid February potential!!!

 

People here are such downers. Just extrapolate a little, people. I see hour 240 has a lot of potential if the block is thirty-three notches stronger and 300 miles to the north.

You're really on a roll with this changing quotes thing. Groundbreaking stuff, and a classic precursor to dry/warm springs.

Someone’s been a little salty lately over a tanked winter forecast. It’s ok. Phil probably did a little worse all things considered.
