Actually, it is very easy not to model ride until 11/20 or so.

I can’t remember the model riding ever starting this early. Y’all are gonna be burned out by January at this rate. 😆

I was on Weatherwest earlier and a guy from Palm Springs said he had 143 days of 100+ this year, a new record, and that 150 is possible.

I couldn’t imagine living year round in that.

That’s literally hell on earth (for anyone not named Tim).

Maybe! or close to it. I'm real eager to see how the models look once the ridge merger/block evolves HR 60 to 72(Day 2.5 to 3) Given how models have trended stronger with the merger/block and shunting the cut-off northwest of Hawaii, models might turn even colder. C'MON!!!!

Can't blame Jim for that one. This is squarely on me fueling it every night. Not wish-casting, but definitely model riding.

I've not read it, though I know Bill Simmons tries to re-structure the hall of fame like a pyramid and goes into quite a bit of alternate history. He made a revision last year. He's a die hard Celtics fan that's for sure.

Looks like we're up to 50F.

More showers than I was expecting this morning.

It appears they are associated with a little shortwave moving through. Skies should clear out behind it later on.

Here in Skykomish it’s currently raining and 43 degrees. Lots of trees came down across Hwy 2 I noticed, must have been yesterday. Power crews were still working on power lines as well. 
And the deer were cleaning up my driveway this morning, thanks!!

Can’t wait for some crisp days and chilly nights next week. Should really get the leaves turning, they are still surprisingly green around town.

I'll second that. 55º with sunshine and a few clouds here.

To see that it's already 90º this morning at my old house in LA in an endless string of 90º+ days makes me very glad to be here!

Looks to be about 10 days out for any of that interesting continental air to make it down this way.
