Keep that trend going another 10-12 runs and as the block shifts offshore, then pivots we would probably see a backdoor blast.

I think you are seeing/wanting things that aren't there.  It may show up down the line but that big blob of red is sloshing around in the about the same place.

Briefly beautiful sunrise this morning. Shot from the car. You can even see the inverted shadow of Mt. Hood.

Not on 'this run', but if the block keeps trending to build further west, then yeah we would see a good shot of cold air into Eastern Washington.

I hope it happens for you.  You put a lot of time into posting some cool maps.

Man you’ve really got us cold freaks’ numbers. We are just double standard having imbeciles.

Smoky skies in the summer actually aren’t too bad in small doses and make for some interesting sunsets. The main thing I don’t like about them is the weather that causes them. I realize not wanting it as hot as possible in the summer is another cardinal sin though.

Similar with fog. I find it kind of asthetic and beautifully moody in small doses. I wouldn’t want to sit in it for weeks though. Would mean pretty boring weather when we could be getting storms or mountain snow. Or even cold east winds which is another common side affect of inversion patterns down this way.

Happy holidays! 🎄

No measurable precip in the region Dec. 1-14. Seems legit.

Same thing happened in December 2009.     And it only rained on just 7 days that month.    Crappy summer followed.

Also was a ridge that retrograded into a big arctic airmass over the region during that period. So a lot more 500mb variance.

Well looks like next week we’ve got a good chance of seeing some strong easterly gusts from the stampede gap. So far this fall/winter our strongest wind events will be of the eastern variety and that trend will continue. Haven’t had southerly winds top 40mph so far but had much stronger winds on Labor Day and could have some decent gusts coming up next week.

Yeah, that would be similar. Of course it was a natural shift coming after a really cold and troughy December, the likes of which we did not quite benefit from this month.

Early February 85 was pretty nice.

KLGX radar is down until further notice.

I was just going to post this... sounds like it might be awhile.    Good timing.

Sounds like a major failure.   They have a couple weeks to get it resolved and then it should be good as new for late December snow events!    

I remember the days with no coastal radar.   That sucked.

Excellent. If that doesn’t make exciting weather manifest, nothing will.

It's called clown range for a reason.
