Probably won't happen but when I lived in Bellingham, we got down to at least 4.1 degrees in December 2008.

And the temps it shows for where I live now are not the coldest I have seen since I moved here. 

 

Oh, absolutely, such temperatures can happen here. I know the records. But, they’re pretty d*mn rare.

It's called clown range for a reason.

Yeah, I can't remember what date it was, but we dropped to 2F here, probably on that same day. By far the coldest we've been here, but the 18" snow depth no doubt helped. Other than that I've dropped into the single digits one other time in the past 13 years.

A week long ensemble mean being that anomalous at that range is bonkers. I'm not very familiar with the extended GFS ensemble though. Hopefully tonight's run looks similar.

 

Edit: This is the control run not the ensemble mean but week long anomalies that strong are still pretty incredible.

 

I should have mentioned that I posted it for entertainment purposes. That said, long range models are advertising lots of high latitude blocking. We can only hope. 👍

Silver Falls hit 12 with the first arctic push in December 2008, given there was solid snow cover, and our location is a lot better for radiational cooling than the park, it was probably easily into the single digits here. The park ended up recording a 32" snow depth on Christmas, which was a record for December. 

Coldest we've been since I have lived here was 2 just after midnight on 12/8/13.

00z Canadian Ensembles Day 10-16

Looks a lot like the GEFS, which looked a lot like the ECMWF weeklies, which looked a lot like the GEFS Extended. 

Overall pretty good agreement among the ensembles for a favorable pattern change coming up in the near future. Feeling cautiously optimistic.

I do like extreme rain stats... and those periods usually result in a nice reward.

Still sitting under this moderate rain... been for a quite a while.

Going to go all night per the models... you can also see we have a long way to go based on the IR loop.
