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!

Hope we can hit some 70s by month end.

That would get the grass going!

You have to wonder if the EPS control was already seeing what the coming SSW might bring.  This is a pretty legit shot at something good coming up.  In the mean time it's going to be cool at least.

For some people sunny and warm weather in the middle of winter is depressing,  no different than for some people rainy and gloomy days in the middle of summer is depressing.  Spring like weather in winter depresses me and always has. But I can't do nothing about it but relocate and that I will do soon. 

In this case spring even hit over there....and the entire country for that matter.  As I said the other day the weather is going big right now.  Painting in BIG and BROAD strokes.

The crotch rocket riders certainly felt the seasonal vibe today. Got passed by two doing whole lane splitting thing. 50/50 they’ll survive the summer and actually experience the December REGIONAL BLAST.

Every time I see those guys I know they won't be around long.  Kind of sad actually.

But it wasn’t a LEGIT blast. It was FAKE COLD. 

I beg to differ.  One of the coldest max temps on record for many places with that event.  That airmass was a beast.  The only time I ever had pipes freeze here.

It takes some serious balls. It’s a lifestyle where you’re one lane change by Prius away from almost certain death. YOLO!!!

My preferences can beat up your preferences’ dad.

This whole weekend would be a jacked thunderstorm pattern a few months from now.

Was just thinking that. This pattern will probably reappear at some point in AMJ.

Any appetite in a North Sound meetup over the next week?

 

Also looking at a Portland meet up later this month if there is any interest.

I hear there will be a Jesse piñata there. They may also burn him in effigy. If so count me in!!!

Plus we have had a long run of cold and snow in February.    Winter peaking late has been the norm.

It's crazy warm in Minnesota as well with no end in sight.  I don't see evidence of my family and friends packing up and heading for the north pole to avoid spring in February... at least not yet.

Actually see lots of posts like this...

Should make you feel a little better that there is no escape east.   It's just a Nino set up.

The good news is we can get this Nino off our back and hopefully we have a winter next year so fuckkking cold it kills every palm tree north of the California state line.

Yep we needed a regional dud. And we sure got one.

Dude.  For some reason you just can't accept that palm trees grow all along the entire West Coast into SW BC.  It's nothing new.  It's a borderline Mediterranean climate.    This is Seattle... not Siberia. 

Side note... all the palm trees around here just survived a 3-year Nina with no problems.  ;)

Looks like an outlier from the EPS mean. Operational runs/control runs have little use beyond D5 or so.

They won’t survive being doused in lighter fluid and set on fire.

There’s a re-education camp in Palm Spring’s with their name on it. Hopefully it’s not too late for them to become good people with sane, reasonable preferences.

The upcoming +PNA will attack the PV and possibly force an early/dynamic final warming.

It might be too little too late, but if we do pull off a top-tier dynamic final warming, the niño tendency towards warm/dry springs in the NW US could be muted to some extent.

That said, it didn’t work out that way in 2016 (which was the last such occurrence). Niño might be too strong/stubborn.

Depressing is probably not the right word for this. Most of us on here don't like that this weather is happening, but it's a lot less depressing than cold rain. We can actually enjoy weather like this, it's hard to enjoy cold rain, although during cold rain you can go up to the mountains where there is snow, that is enjoyable. Most of us here wish we weren't getting this weather, but I doubt anyone actually will go outside and think to themselves "being outside in comfortable temps, with the sun shining, the birds chirping, is depressing, I'm miserable out here"

 

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And this weather is making some D**n good lemonade.

There was a late SSW in 2016?

We got bit by the 60 bug here today. First 60 of the year here, and since early December, with a 60/44 spread. At least we made it one solid winter month without any, although most areas weren’t as fortunate.

It was partly sunny and if you tried not to think about what time of year it was felt kinda pleasant out. But complimenting climate fueled days like this kind of feels like telling someone they look good when they lost weight because of chemo.

Sadly I have seen palms grow in Switzerland and Southern Norway. So yea those hardy bastards grow in a lot of places.

Was is climate fueled in Feb 1962?   We can't touch the record highs set on the 1st and 2nd that year.

The reaction from some on here is so silly.   It's just part of life on this planet.    They grew in the ice-free arctic for a surprisingly large part of the last 500 million years.
