If you are cheering for a cold May... the thing you really have to hope does not happen is Jim coming back on here screaming about frosty nights and historically cold patterns.     That is truly the kiss of death.

Some rainfall predictions for the next 7-10 days.   Most lowlands locations 1-2 inches Mossman’s house 6-8” Tim’s house. 30-40”. Tim will report he can hear the rain pounding on his roof at least on

Looks like OLM achieved a new late season record low this morning with a low of 23.   Low of 31 here, but no frost since the air is so dry. One of my later freezes in memory.

Pretty interesting.

Anyone watch the new Michael Moore movie “Planet of the Humans”?

 

Got totally slammed by certain environmental groups for exposing some of the corruption and hypocrisy of the modern green movement, and the narrow minded dogmatism of what the climate change debate has become. Once I saw that I knew I had to see it. Like him or not the dude is a truth telling mother******.

0.03” of rain today. Dry month.

 

 

Looks like the Cedar Lake station ended up around 5 inches for the month... 8 inches is normal.

Greta will not be pleased.

My preferences can beat up your preferences’ dad.

Close to 1.4” here. Normal is 2.8”.

 

 

Relatively close to the same departure in terms of percentage.    

 

The Snoqualmie Falls station which is about the same distance from here as Cedar Lake in the other direction ended up at 2.53 inches and normal is 4.47.

Ya think?

Made for some very entertaining, and in some ways sad, memes though.

I always figured you just hated her for being an outspoken young person. Annoying!

I find the chart useful as well... looks generally warmer and drier than normal in the mid and long range.

Yeah, that seemed to be the period where the global climate really turned the corner away from the 19th century/LIA hangover regime.

 

Then of course there was another relative cool down from the mid 1940s thru the 70s. Followed by the current modern warming regime. Part of me wonders if we could ever see another couple decade bump down at some point, even with a multi-decadal warming trend continuing in the background, but the 2007-12 negative PDO period was sadly the best we have been able to muster thus far.

 

The generally +PDO and weak ENSO forcing with a rapidly warming globe does sound an awful lot like the last 6-7 years, though. Just oscillating about what is now a much warmer mean than 80-100 years ago.

 

There've been some similarities for sure the last few years, just in a watered down sense. From a national perspective, I don't think something like 1935-36 would be possible nowadays.

Everything is possible. Things can change quickly. If its happened before it will happen again.

I suppose February 2019 and October 2019 were solidly cold in a sustained manner we haven't seen for awhile. And of course there have been our PNW "Dust Bowl Jr" summers of 2015, 2017 and 2018 thrown in the mix. As well as our most honest to goodness cold winter of the last quarter century in 2016-17.

 

Sort of the Western Family version of dynamism.

Finally got to look at it outside of the rhetoric filter on here, and the 00Z GFS was a very decent run.

Was hoping it was enough to bring Jim back.... not yet it appears.

There is a May thread now.

 

 

That was 2 days ago and was posted in this thread because he was summarizing his April stats.
