For everywhere wondering/speculating about where I have been, I am very flattered We have been on a road trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone this week. Took a nice week off before starting a new

Getting married tomorrow so that’s why I’ve not been around a ton of late. Looks like we are about 68F out there and are ready for some much-needed rainfall overnight.

Well I haven't been around in a while. Been a little, erm, preoccupied. Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine and warmth lately! I'll be in Arizona for the weekend, and hopeful I don't melt!

Probably has more to do with lack of rain than anything, my deeply delusional amigo.

I'm not sure why you keep digging at me like this.

I'm pretty sure it's colder than that.  Phil has pointed out that the data set used in the maps you post is warm biased.

Not looking at maps... looking at water temp observations.   Ocean Shores and Long Beach are 49 and 49.2 respectively this morning.    Average for April is 50.5.   But its early April so its probably just a little cooler than normal.    And it will likely be warming up with the pattern next week.

The first half of April is looking very warm and dry on the whole. More of the same garbage we have seen every spring since 2017, and since 2013 before that. Not even a moderate Nina can buy us a little respite.

Granted it’s still relatively early, but this is pretty much the last thing we want to see right now.

WTF are you talking about?  It's running below normal for many stations and the next week looks pretty cold for the most part.  OLM has been setting record lows left and right lately and I think Eugene set one yesterday.  Dry...yes...warm...no.

I know my climate is semi-arid but isn't it a little different that I went from mid-August to early April without a heavy rain? I don't think any of the AR's in the PNW did any major amounts of rainfall this past season. A few days with 1/2" rainfall isn't abnormal in the winter here.

I’m sorry. It seems like we have a really really different way of viewing the current pattern. Mine is based on recent history, yours is based more on 70 years ago history. Both have their strengths I suppose.

The lows might lean cool, but honestly my highs are a little above current average.

Nice to see yet another trough trending colder in the home stretch.  A little more digging could go along way toward giving us a colder outcome.  If it's going to get warm next week I hope we can get a notable round of cold before it.

Too early... even in a normal year.  

Its best to plant grass seed when the daytime temps are consistently in the 65-75 degree range.  

Grass seed started growing here a month ago. Even with minimums deep into the 20s.

The eastern boundary current is stronger than average thanks to the NPAC High, hence the -PDO/cold horseshoe look.

The northern flank of the horseshoe probably warms up this summer. But the -PMM/-PDO itself (with cool subtropical Pacific) likely stays put.

I think your summers are usually quite a bit cooler than Seattle.  Most recent ones have been a bit too hot for my liking.  With the cold SSTs and likely domination of the Pacific High a cool / very dry summer seems the most likely although you could have drizzle with the chilly onshore flow at times.  I would love to see a few quick hitting autumn like troughs.

I think the PNW will be on the gradient. Between the beastly 4CH and NPAC High (the latter of which favors more marine influence). Pressures should be higher offshore so that’d favor NW flow, but if there’s a 4-corners death ridge then it could be a battle, especially in August/September.

Thursday night / Friday looks solidly chilly.  Freezing low temps early Friday for some places and then the cold system drops down during the day to keep the max temps low.  Some places could see somewhere around -8 departures on that day.

Just a little bit better on the next few runs would add up to something.  It's pretty easy to imagine the trough verifying sharper than currently modeled.

Overall no complaints from me. Summer 2019/2020 both didn't have any considerable heatwaves at my place.

Already seeing yellowjackets and such way earlier than normal so the insect situation is not encouraging.

So far everything has been normal up north. The only thing that seemed early were the abundance of frogs that started to make themselves known in March when my neighbors tell me that is an April kind of thing.

Mosquitos/midges are about the only thing missing, but that comes when we stop getting lows below about 30.

Yup. Yellow Jackets and Wasps have been my neighbors for the last few weeks in Klamath Falls. One got in the house in mid-March. 🐝

About a couple weeks ago I found Giant House Centipede (giant isn't exaggerating) in the bathroom. It disappeared when I grabbed a glass large enough to capture it. Poof. I haven't seen it since. Around 6" long. 

Not a current picture but an example. This was Sep 3 2017, after we've already experienced most of a toasty summer, and highs were near 100 degrees when I last saw one that big. This one stayed on the wall long enough to let me measure it and take HD photos. Exactly 6". How did the one two weeks ago survive temps in the single digits and I'm assuming limited sources for food? 🤪

The lows might lean cool, but honestly my highs are a little above current average. 

We are running +9.1F on April highs currently and it looks to be that or higher for the next 14 days. Lol

Warmest April recorded here was 1992 and it looks like we will crush that record this year. Good news is that following winter was one of the all time greats!

June 2011 maybe?

Overall no complaints from me. Summer 2019/2020 both didn't have any considerable heatwaves at my place.

I think 2012 is a better summer analog than 2011. Though I might be wishcasting subconsciously...2011 was by far the worst summer I’ve ever experienced. Hope to never repeat that.

2012 also had a decaying Niña with a downwelling OKW that warmed ENSO transiently under -PMM/-PDO.

Also, a somewhat similar (large scale) pattern transition from March to April. Though 2021 was displaced poleward over NPAC vs 2012.

Yes, bad year for me from tree pollen. When I was younger it seemed that only grass pollen bothered me. But now March and part of April is miserable and grass pollen doesn't bother me as much.

There are similarities right now to 2012... its was ridiculously warm in the Midwest in March and April that year. Although I think it's been much more sunny with more days in the 60s in my area this year so far compared to March and April of 2012.  

It's definitely colder in Alaska this month so far than that 2012 map.

No two years will match perfectly. 🙂

We flipped into some legitimate troughing in April 2012. The coming transition is quite reminiscent of that.
