Pacific Northwest Weather -June 2023

Maybe it’s just me but it does seems/feels like our marine layer around here is gone in recent years for this time of year. I think this type of weather is usually morning clouds, then burn off in the afternoon for sunshine in the 70s. Right now, we’re going into the 70s with wire to wire sunshine.
 

Also the fog, we don’t have many foggy days anymore, not really counting the inversions. Seems unusual, but may just be the new trend, weather going forward. 

Just for clarification... SEA has not reached 70 since Sunday and that was not even on the hour.   It has not been above 70 there for 6 days.

The point still being is that it’s not particularly warm or hot lately despite the sunshine. It’s perfect Goldilocks weather. The post was more about what happened to the marine layer.

Beautiful day at Cape Blanco.

Totally agree.   I was thinking the same thing about the lack of marine layer and yet somehow we are still managing perfect temps.    

Correction to my last post... it has been a full week since SEA has been above 70.   It barely touched 70 there for a little while at some point late Saturday afternoon but the last time it was over 70 was one week ago this afternoon.

Looks like Maine is taking a break from summer.   Crashed today and stays cold and wet for most of the next week.

The high will be over 70.

People say Idaho and Montana are so sunny in the summer.   They might not have marine layer but they frequently have lots of mid level convective clouds... particularly during the afternoons.

Sometimes it seems like the NWS is making forecasting too hard. Like why bother mentioning the possibility of hitting 100?

Current NBM deterministic guidance shows around 90 degrees for the
interior valley, while the 50th percentile has low to mid 90s for
Tuesday. NBM also continues to slightly back away from temperatures
above 100 degrees. Currently there is around 10 percent chance of
100F at PDX, and 5 percent at KEUG for example. Temperatures cool
slightly to the mid 80s to low 90s for Wednesday.  Does not look like
record breaking temperatures, though could be if the more extreme
forecast comes verifies.

Amazing how different 94°F feels when it isn’t humid. Barely broke a sweat outside today.

They seem to have forgotten how that “model” publicly humiliated them in late February.

A light frost that only lasts a little bit is fine, yesterday was the first time in my life I have seen frost in June though, thought that was cool!!

Heck yeah. We went to Texas last month and while the temperature was only 5-10 degrees warmer, the humidity made everything feel so different.

It was wild, but I was freaking out about the garden. I woke up at 4 am to go feel the windshields in the dark to see if it was frozen even though it was 34/35. Sure enough solid ice. I thought for sure I’d lose everything. Good to know the tender stuff can take it.

Really nice day. 75/44 spread here. Mostly sunny and a little breezy in the afternoon.

This weather and these kinds of temps are great for the warm season. I really hope we can manage more rain this month though. The window is closing quickly, since wishing for significant June rainfall after the summer solstice feels a bit like a fool’s errand.

I grew up growing stuff in Tennessee. I love gardening with a passion, but it has been a difficult transition to learn the process here. Between deer and cold it was a steep learning curve. I put zucchini out in April my first season 😂😂. Nice to hear/see everyone’s success stories, keeps me motivated.

Your area seems to be significantly cooler than King County.    Do any of your neighbors have gardens?

Cold? It’s been one of the warmest late April through early June periods in recorded history throughout the region.

It was cool before that, but in a much more pedestrian way relative to the current warmth.

Pretty sure he meant in general it's colder here in April and May than it is in Tennessee and that has been part of the learning curve.  Not that it's been that colder than normal.

It’s “cold” compared to TN though. An average July in Memphis would obliterate all time records in W-WA.

You really should move down south. Since records began in 1877, Downtown LA had its 20th coldest May and 23rd coldest January to May for high temperatures.

Another cool morning here. Low of 46 so far.

GFS has been pretty consistent with cooler and possibly wetter pattern developing in the mid to long range. Euro sadly had been more stubborn, though.

The Euro/EPS is king for a reason. Can’t count how many times it has humiliated all other guidance out this way, despite being on its lonesome with whatever solution it projects. It is just on another level entirely.

That said, there are rare cases where it slips up. And I’m tempted to say this might be one of those cases. Last nights 00z EPS made a significant move, with a majority of members jumping into a cooler/+NPO pattern, though there is still a warm cluster more similar to the operational/control runs. But it was a notable shift.

However, the GFS progression is more -NPO, which is one of its biases associated with GOA cutoffs, and none of the EPS members look like that, either. So I suspect the GFS is wrong on that front.

But I’ll also go out on a fragile limb and predict the Euro/EPS will shift substantially cooler by 12z today or 00z tonight. 😬 We’ll see.

CPC outlook remains bullish on precipitation chances throughout the intermountain west through week-4.

What an incredible difference a year makes.
