Usually its in the 50s at night at his house. Except for when it snows, though it often accumulates with temps in the mid-30s and does not melt for several days though temps never drop below freezing.

Really impressive mid-March lows. Upper 20s along much of the coastline, 27 at Grants Pass. Also interesting that lows west of the Cascades were generally lower than east side. K-Falls got down to 14 though.

Unfortunately this all true!    We can go through a period of offshore flow when its ridiculously warmer out here than other places but then when precip arrives its snowing here and raining elsewhere.    Seen this many times.

But the clouds did hang on all night in the EPSL... which was not expected.

I'm just kidding, I believe you had some clouds hang on which kept temps up. Happens a lot around these parts.

I wanted to address your claim/question about if there has been any year on record in the airport era where the seasonal low at EUG was in October. Jesse is very skeptical of this idea, and honestly I was when you first mentioned it to me. I thought of 2002-03 and 2006-07 as obvious examples of years where this likely occurred. However, when I looked into it, at least in regards to those years you were right. The coldest low of the 2002-03 season at EUG actually occurred on November 1st, in 2006-07 EUG had a low of 17 on 10/31, but did record a colder low during the January 2007 cold snap (Which was actually a pretty impressive cold snap at EUG with 4 straight sub-freezing highs.). There may be another year this occurred, but I have not found it yet.

Did you have some wind too? Typically cloud cover like that would not keep the temp above freezing here with an airmass this cold.

Nope... calm all night.   The clouds were much thicker overnight and at dawn.  It was not just here.   Temps across most of EPSL were about the same in the low to mid 30s.  Watch the satellite loop.

Not EUG, but Medford‚Äôs 19¬įF on 10/31/02 was the coldest temp recorded there between Dec 1998 and Dec 2005.

That Thursday/Friday system should bring a good shot of mountain snow. We'll probably see some flakes at least here.

Looks good for the mountains up here starting Thursday evening.   New GFS shows around 60 for a high on Thursday and then low 50s on Friday so I doubt we see any snow here.    Some mild rain would nice though.

My gut tells me some wonky year in the 30s or 40s could have done it but I could easily be wrong.

Depends on the definition... I am calling it mild rain with a temp around 50 with showers on Friday.¬† ¬† ¬†That is better than the 37-degree rain we had here on Sunday evening.¬†ūüėĀ

Low of 26 here. Easily one of the lowest temps I’ve recorded this late.

It was crystal clear with heavy frost earlier. Now dense fog and 33 degrees.

Yes and there are some terrible years in there. 1917-18 was objectively worse than anything in recent memory. Not a single sub-40F high that year.

Justin has done some great posts on that winter.

1933-34 was another doozy. 1925-26 as well. Then there was a pretty prolific stretch of crappy winters in the late 30s thru early 40s that rivals some of the modern stretches.

Some pretty impressive lows this morning throughout the region. Sort of a fun event to cap off the cold season.

I am happy to see a wetter pattern with mountain snows on the horizon now. Definitely what is needed at this juncture.

Trade burst over the IPWP, initiates right at the equinox as expected. Then propagates eastward into cold tongue region.

Those LR anomalies should increase in amplitude upon approach once ensembles fully capture that next step and spread decreases.

You really think you are going to be at 50 on Friday at 1100'?! Maybe if you get a sunbreak that lasts a few hours, but honestly it looks like a low 40s day down here... We are talking about sub 528 thickness and pretty cold air aloft, if precip is falling it is probably going to be pretty cold.

The IPWP is the source for downwelling OKWs which¬†warm the subsurface, so stronger trades there do more to produce the multiyear Ni√Īa than trades over the cold tongue/EPAC. Trade bursts over the IPWP during boreal spring are of significant consequence to ENSO evolution, statistically speaking.

Which is why ni√Īas under the east-shifted/extended IPWP regimes (like 2017/18, 2005/06, etc) tend to be single year events that transition +ENSO with time. And the +PMM is a symptom of that extended equatorial warm pool.

We’re clearly in the more retracted phase of IPWP right now. And the -PMM is a symptom of that.

Now it’s the parallel GFS that better fits the GWO/ENSO analog pattern evolution than the legacy GFS.

With the very strong late season PV now, you could have a net poleward shift in the surf, but likely not to the extent of the legacy GFS.

The years with stronger vortexes still have the -PNA/western trough, just with more of the cold up in Canada. However, none of the analogs I can find resemble the legacy GFS (beyond hyper transient 1-2 day intervals).

This is good to hear but I feel like to a certain extent we need to let it ride. Long range weather is inherently unpredictable. As it stands you and Jim combined are going to spook what is probably our best chance of a notably cool spring/early summer in a decade. ;)

Chill, my far more anxious brother in arms.  This summer is a no-brainer, at least by 21st century standards.

What¬†choice do we have? ūüėȬ†Just trying to do what I enjoy, playing ma‚Äô nature‚Äôs game.

And I doubt it’ll be 100% cool/troughy. I think there’s a good chance for a warm/ridgy interlude in late April and/or the first half of May.
