Thank you.   Sorry been a crazy day. Got the kiddos back to their mom in the central Willamette Valley and have just now gotten our cozy place somewhat back together.   Such kind words. Y'all have sav

If you crop out the date, you'd think these were early winter scenes...

I hear ya, things are good here.    Overall health is improving quite well.    Hang in there man.

Lots of people do back breaking manual labour for work and still can’t afford a jet ski.

 

Phil said summer would peak early this year so this could be as good as it gets.

I had my full time year round job at the golf course and also worked part time at a wedding facility doing grounds work as well...Really wanted that new jetski and made it happen! Was single at the time so my priorities were a tad different than they are today.

Feels like winter out there. Right now, the sun should be around 50º high for the Seattle area, and the amount of light reaching the surface is on par with late fall.

Seems like mid January today only 52 degrees out here and breezy with rain!

Hopefully our wildfire threat will be low this season due to all of this cool and wet weather...However I did notice that central Washington was extra green when I was over there a few weeks ago...Hopefully that doesn’t translate to extra fuel later in the season.

from what I recall the spring and early summer of 2017 had a decent amount of rainfall around western WA then it turned hot and dry in the second half of June. Ended up being a smoky hot summer still because there was virtually no rainfall after early June. We will just have to wait and see hopefully we can avoid that.

Definitely more disposable income when you’re single. This family thing kicks the out of your bank account

Will just have to make sure we have frequent bouts of rain and cool weather this summer to help avoid that.

Looking back at some photos, June 9 2015 was an interesting weather day. A lot hotter, and had t'storms 3 different times in less than 24 hours. 

 

The storms in the early evening kicked up a fairly big dust cloud in town, visibility was maybe 1/2 mile at the peak of the dust.

The storms in the early evening kicked up a fairly big dust cloud in town, visibility was maybe 1/2 mile at the peak of the dust.

 

A rare phenomenon also occurred in the AM storms, the energy was pulling up all sorts of things from the environment into the air. Made me a bit nauseous, heavy breathing. Australia has this thing called thunderstorm asthma, I guess very rarely it can happen in the United States as well.

This pattern change seems a little more robust. Aleutian low with west coast ridging.

It’s real, but like the one in May, it’s tied to transient tropical forcing(s) within the constraints of the relevant seasonal boundary states. So the duration is questionable, and it won’t be handled well at-range. Especially now.

I prefer pattern changes with unquestionable duration. 

Low. Solar.

Good soaking two times a week during the nighttime hours is my preference.

Keep repeating this two times a day during any hours and I’m sure it will come true!

GFS has consistently shown Friday being wet and cold while the ECMWF has consistently shown it being dry and much warmer.

 

Recent history has proved that the GFS is actually better than the ECMWF with surface details now.   I am assuming that Friday will be wet and cold.

Hoping we can end up with some decent thunderstorm activity this weekend...this last weekend didn’t amount to much in my area. Last month was pretty awesome though!

Models also show some rain tomorrow and Thursday for western WA... not much a break for us for the next 8 or 9 days it appears.

I think summer like weather will probably make its first appearance sometime late this month. Fingers crossed that the 4th (which is on a weekend) is dry.

This absurd trolling is almost as annoying as seeing everyone get their panties in a bunch over a typical rainy pattern. Almost.

 

Truth is you live almost 3,000 miles way and no one really cares what you think our weather should be doing.

 

Personally I'm hoping we get somebody from Fargo to join the board so they can spend the entire winter telling us about how awful continental air is and how we shouldn't be rooting for anything other than endless SW flow. That would be extremely interesting and highly relevant.

I just have more than a feeling the 4th is going to absolutely suck this year.

I lived in SW Yamhill County at the time and had a foot of snow, an inch of ice, and another foot of snow.

 

EUG had a bit of snow going into the initial Arctic airmass and then a couple of sub-freezing highs but then moderated as the low came in just a bit too far to the north so as to bring them marine surface winds.

 

EUG also hasn't had a White Christmas since 1990. Their longest streak on record without one.

So 30 years since a White Christmas. You are due dude!!

Personally I was able to enjoy one back in 2008, fortunately.

 

But the young winter weather enthusiasts in the south Willamette Valley know nothing of them, which is pretty fukkin sad to be honest. The near-miss back in 2008 as well as missing out on 2017 makes it seem as though a White Christmas will never happen again in Eugene in our lifetimes.

Only ended up with 0.41" here today, about as fall-like a day as I've ever seen in June with the rain/wind this morning.

It’s been a bit breezy here too...definitely didn’t feel like June. So far it’s the 3rd wettest day I’ve recorded in the month of June in the last 15 years.

Personally I was able to enjoy one back in 2008, fortunately.

 

But the young winter weather enthusiasts in the south Willamette Valley know nothing of them, which is pretty fukkin sad to be honest. The near-miss back in 2008 as well as missing out on 2017 makes it seem as though a White Christmas will never happen again in Eugene in our lifetimes.

 

February on the other hand...

Sorry meant to say for the Eugene area and since you are living there down you need a White Christmas. We received a White Christmas up here in 2017. It makes Christmas feel even more special, especially for the kids hehheh
