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

I for one would love to have the “goods” mid December through the new year. That’s  the best possible time in my eyes. Makes the holidays more memorable as well. 

There’s nothing better than gathering closely with tons of friends and family as the snow falls outside.

There seems to be a bit of a trend in todays model runs to slightly weaken the death ridge over us during week 2.  

Last nights Canadian Ensembles:

Last nights GFS:

And how the current 18Z ends:

That looks like noise to me. Esp given it’s 384hrs out.

Well most synths are virtual nowadays. VSTs. I’m into making music on the PC and own a few programs if you ever have a question about that. 
 

Although you may just be interested in the old school legit synths. But those take up real space in your house and can be very expensive.

I know this is a weather forum, but this triggered a memory.  I used to have a Roland Juno 106 analog synth years ago and sold it back then.  Just looked them up and they run anywhere from $800-$2000!  Didn't pay much for it and sure didn't sell it for much either.  Must be popular now.

The models seem to be having real problems resolving the strength of the supposed week 2 ridge.  A strong ridge is best if you want it to be cold.  In general I would like a strong ridge for a number of reasons.  Hopefully the next few runs will stabilize a bit.

It’s week 2. What do you expect?

Good point.  I'm just ready for it to clear out.  I hate this drippy gloom.

It just refuses to clear out here.  Probably going to be a long wait now for it to frost again.  People in OR are the clear winners for cold nights thus far.

It’s what synthwave musicians use. The neon lights, new-80s sound that is taking over pop radio (making it better IMO) and has slowly been doing so since the early 2010s.

Fog lifted into low clouds here in Battle Ground and never cleared.  3 miles west, the sun is out.  High of 45 today.

Yeah, hit 48 here. 

Trees are about or maybe a little over 50/50 now on the bare/leaf split.

I have a feeling this was the last sunny day. Tomorrow might be more inversiony with clouds.

Pretty interesting article from Scott about trying to verify Mount Baker's snowfall claims in '98-99. It's amazing that the ski area had 178" in November!

49/36 here today. Some low clouds early but cleared out by late morning.

Crystal clear and down to 39 currently. Should score a frost or freeze tonight, maybe even before midnight at the rate it's dropping.

You want it to clear out so you can get some fog tomorrow and be in colder, drippy gloom. Do I have that right?

Isn’t the moon a waxing crescent today? Or is that just the camera?

Hell yeah! Except this time it’s going to be in the high 50s and sunny at the passes instead of snowing at the passes!

You guys don’t really do the inversion thing up there do you?

Not so much.  Even during the real strong winter inversions, Shawnigan Lake will often be above the cold fog layer.
