12Z EPS... AL pattern on track and wettest precip anomalies focused way south.

Seems like the AL part has been pushed back a bit? Wasn't the EPS showing it locking in around day 12 like three or four days ago?

Doesn't look too different than previous runs.     Looks even more stable on 12Z run though.

Looks about the same. 57/58? There’s one 60 but could be overexposed.

Do you still have a personal weather station you based your obs off of, or do you just find the warmest nearby station on wunderground?

You know an El Nino pattern is setting up when this page is relatively quiet (but not deserted) and WW is the site I am refreshing instead. I'm originally from there and have family still living in the area so it gives me something to be excited for. Maybe @Anti Marine Layer will enjoy his shower outside.

Nice day!

Could stand to be a little cooler and cloudier. I realize if I fell into line and agreed with you I’d probably avoid the daily nanny treatment, but I stand by my (incorrect) weather preferences.

Currently 62F at my PWS. We are in the southerly wind downslope area of Mt Pisgah and also have southerly downslope from the Kalapuyas which keeps a small area here warmer than other surrounding areas at times.

Just talked to a farming buddy in Chesaw, He said this is the worst snow conditions there since 2005 easy. His depth at 5kft is 11 inches and the average depth there this time of year is 35-40.  The area can have large snow events well into April so they still have hope but are worried about fire season already.

We are almost totally melted out in the sunnier spots at our place. Over an inch of rain last few days.  Just a little different a year ago.

So this will be interesting to see what the frogs do when it cools down. This time of year with a average mid 30's low and around upper 40's high they wont make a peep but now that they are active i'm not sure if they will stop. Last night sounded no different than a may evening.

Yep i'd take an ice storm. I like weather that changes day to day routine. Makes memories.

Fair enough; all of my memories from this most recent one will be pretty terrible 😂

They will quiet down when it gets cooler.   It seems pretty simple... they are active when its warm and not when its cold.   Its not like once they are active they have to stay active.   I remember in 2019 they were active here in January and then nothing again until the second half of March and then they went crazy again.   They don't seem to care how long the break is between warm periods.

This is correct. Animals are flexible and reactive to the conditions they face, not bound by any seasonal or annual plan. If those same frogs were transported to a pond in Alabama they would just be active all the time.

For example, bears that live near the arctic hibernate for up to 5 months at a time, while members of the same species down South may not hibernate at all.

I have never seen a bear around my property or tracks in winter so they must hibernate over there. I don't think they do west of the cascades.

Euro looks pretty decent, although main action is focused south of you.

Euro keeps trending south but if it holds there we will get dumped on.

 

SIERRA SNOW: Probabilities for 3+ feet: Tahoe Basin (30-40%) &
  Alpine/Mono Counties (85%). Areas south of the Tahoe Basin will
  have duration on their side so snow probabilities for 4+ feet 
  of snow are nearing 60-70%. For Sierra communities, now is the 
  time to prepare and clear what you can before this next storm 
  arrives. At Lake Tahoe level, blended guidance highlights a 60% 
  chance of 2+ feet of snow. For Eastern Sierra communities, such 
  as Bridgeport, Lee Vining and Crowley Lake, there is a 60-70% 
  chance upwards of 2 feet as well.

I am pretty sure they hibernate around here.

This is a big generalization. True for some animals species but definitely not all.

Not gonna lie, got a little SPRING FEVER kicking in this afternoon.

That was NOT the case 35 years ago RIGHT NOW. About an hour from now, HEAVY graupel shower resulted in a FLASH FREEZE at the coast as temps dipped into the upper 20’s with DP’s around 20 during strong ONSHORE FLOW. Artic front arrived at about midnight with snow bands continuing into following afternoon.

Looks like the torching has finally reached PDX. 62 there so far. At least it waited until February, so January’s stats won’t be polluted. 🤮
