Pacific Northwest Weather -June 2023


Recommended Posts

  • TT-SEA pinned this topic

Ended May with a couple wildfires up here in the North Cascades on the west side. One near Shannon Lake south of Mount Baker got to about 80 acres this weekend while a small fire started by a careless Memorial Day camper burned just off of Diablo Lake yesterday and almost forced the evacuation of my work before it was put out. If we don't get much rain in June it could get a whole lot worse.

At Diablo Lake it ended up having the second warmest average high temp of any May in the last 110 years (75F) behind only 1958 (76.3F). That 75F is the average high temperature there on July 4.

As usual, Jesse cannot bear the June thread being created by anyone other than him, and he is very uncreative with titles.

I don't blame him on the title... creative titles have typically been a curse for that month.    I am pretty superstitious now about even starting the new monthly topic.  😁

Wasn’t last December’s title basically a pre-touchdown end zone dance over having no 50+ temps that month? Christmas Day involved a 60-burger for Eugene!

It's called clown range for a reason.

I think I remember '1954 Redux!' in the title for a summer month last year... ended up being the complete opposite.

Extended persistent cold for months... that should make the cold weather fans happier than just one extreme event.  👍

Maybe we’ll get 4 or 5 days of Juneuary this year…

A few rainy days is not really Juneuary... its just June.    That name should be reserved for when it's a frequently gloomy and damp month and never really warms up.  And that does happen.    It has been earned in years past.    Appears we are going to start June this year with 10 straight days of sunshine.

A slightly above normal June would be a miraculous win.

Made it down to 40 this morning. Currently 52.7. The low this morning is actually colder than the coldest low in May IMBY. Got down to 41 on the 10th.

Can we just fast forward 4 months and get back to model riding?

And finally an El Niño/-QBO winter. 🥳

Back from CO. Wish I could’ve stayed longer, so much I didn’t get to do. Definitely plan on going back.

Adjacently OT, but still have not had a single 70+ dp reading here in 2023! 🥳 A throwback to the weather I remember during my elementary school years (early 2000s), which is when my interest in weather was sparked. How long can it last?

Also a remarkable diversion from post-1998 climate trends. And nothing like the recent El Niño onset years (2015, 2018, etc), which already felt like August before the summer solstice.

Hopefully a good omen.

Besides a few glimmers of false hope on some of the models in the long range recently…it’s Looking like no meaningful rainfall on the way for the next 10 days. That hopefully this means summer will come to an end in late august or September this year instead of October like 2022. Meteorological summer just started but it doesn’t feel much different than most of the last 10 years.

I know there’s an El Niño for this upcoming winter but since the La Nina’s the past three years haven’t exactly planned out just like typical La Nina’s, any very early guesses on the winter weather coming up in a few months? Just curious to what you guys think since this weather is sooooo boring. 

My guess is warmer and maybe a bit wetter than last year. But not necessarily a wet year either. Don’t think we see any great lowland winter weather events west of the mountains but will be better east of the mountains per the norm.

I think we might get one good cold shot and snow shot most likely towards February and possibly a wet/stormy October otherwise very El Nino like Mild and pretty Dry, less mountain snowfall and not much in lowlands tho again Feb maybe get a little.

I still think SEA ends up with about average snowfall most likely from Feb for this winter mostly likely like that ranges from maybe 2" below average to maybe 2" above average but overall should stay about normal. Rainfall more towards average tho maybe less in some spots but not regionally. Temps should average a couple of degrees above average Oct-March but could have a cold shot February particularly 2nd-3rd week. Not to say one or two episodes can't happen Nov, Dec or Jan but very unlikely.
