December 2023 Weather in the PNW

Recommended Posts

Long range pattern on the EPS continues to trend more niño-like as it gets closer in time. Been a consistent theme for the last week. Reminds me of December 2015 to some degree.

Another take.

Typical El Niño timing for blocking and cold as well. Similar to the 2015-16 analog you're teasing about

True. But I’ve struggled to see things correctly this fall, so nothing would surprise me at this point.

Now that’s an old school niño December. 🔥

As reliable as any subseasonal tendency out there.

Does that mean we're going to get our cold air from Alaska this winter??? lolz

It means Putin will get your cold air. And everyone else’s.

At least for the next 2-3 weeks.

It's okay, Phil. Recently I learned weather forecasts grow more difficult the further out in time you are projecting. Did you know, forecasting beyond a week out for a given point is nearly a crapshoot, especially in the winter?

From what I've read, the European Union has their own supercomputer running their own weather model. It's called the 'ECMWF', and according to some of the weather nerds I've talked to, it's supposed to be pretty good.

Does Snoqualmie have a target date for open or they SOS?

No, but after they were barely able to open at all in 2014-15 they did some extensive brush cutting at Summit West, so they can usually get that open quickly. I bet it opens next weekend as long as they get at least a foot after this AR. 

The writing is on the wall for skiing in that area, maybe 20-25 years left before they give up.

Cold is still hanging on at the cabin with snow and 29 degrees. I decided not to go this weekend because I knew the rain would wash the snow away tonight and tomorrow.  Next weekend looks much better for a little snow and cool temps.

How much snow has fallen there so far?

You might only have to wait until this weekend for thunderstorms if that warm sector punch verifies. Nasty airmass.

TWC is talking about the PNW Pineapple Express. One of the commentators said Seattle people always carry umbrellas on hand when going out because it’s always wet.

I assume that’s not quite accurate, but :lol: .

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

Literally the opposite... no one carries umbrellas around here.

I work DT.  You can always spot the transplants by those that do carry umbrellas.
