This is an extremely useful resource I found recently.  It has ENSO data back to 1871.  

. If you scroll down you will find a table where ENSO events are ranked from 1 (coldest) to 140 (warmest) and it is broken down by quarter years (or maybe it's thirds).  I actually like this better than a table of monthly anomalies.

Thanks big fella.

Awesome photo. Im betting this storm won’t be the only one we get this year....I’m sure this won’t be the strongest either. You’ll be able to catch the next one. 

I will enjoy the storm through you guys!

Just finished star watching with zero light pollutions here at the Lava Beds monument.....just incredible!!!

Really a shame to see it so badly burnt there. My list of favorite spots that have been burnt is getting longer than the spots that haven't been burned.

High of about 60 this afternoon. Some steady light rains early in the morning gave way to clearing skies throughout the day. Picked up 0.13".

00z WRF shows gusts getting up to about 40mph around the Puget Sound tomorrow, peaking around 2PM. 12z Euro was about 10 mph or so higher, FWIW.

wow nice early storm, but which model to lean on for this? And the advisory is until 6pm so far maybe they will change it.

Things are really looking up on the GFS in the believable range.  If the improvement continues for a few more run this might end up pretty good.
