50/36 day here. Solidly chilly. Thick overcast with light rain and drizzle at times. Felt like the cloudiest day in weeks.

Tried to soak it in since we go back to the sunny type of troughing we have seen most of the spring tomorrow. Followed by endless ridging.

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!

The 00Z GFS is still warm and basically dry next week... but the 00Z GEFS is warmer and looks more like the EPS.

00z Euro tries to dig energy back from the east next week too now, like the GFS. Still is mild and dry, but cooler than previous runs. Much cooler than the 12z for the mid to late part of next week.

No doubt the ECMWF shows it getting pretty darn cold before the warmup.   Three consecutive nights with widespread freezing low temps with Saturday and Sunday nights having record low potential.  A couple of chilly max temps as well.

Looks like a lot of uncertainty creeping in with how the pattern will look later next week.

A sloppy coating of the remnants of c-zone hail on the ground this morning and 35 degrees.

This storm also over-performed in this area in terms of precip.  North Bend has picked 1.32 inches of rain since yesterday afternoon.

00Z EPS was still warm and dry... but the GOA ridge is replaced by a GOA trough which should lead to a wet pattern eventually.

Today in 2016 it was 81 for a high in Klamath Falls.

That was right before one of the most amazing patterns for mid-Spring thunderstorms southern Oregon has seen in quite some time. One of the sunsets I had that month with rolling thunder in the background. I have some video of these on youtube.

Its really interesting to see the GFS continue to cut-off energy into the SW next week and now the ECMWF and EPS trending that way.   The ECMWF was always the model that had a cut-off bias.   Now it seems the GFS is more prone to cutting off energy and its actually leading the way at times.

Looks like the euro shows us getting 0.10” from the next system then another lengthy dry streak. The days are somewhat chilly to start but we get fairly warm towards the end of the run.

Yeah, it’s early/anecdotal, but the new GFS has definitely been heavy with those cutoff ULLs, particularly over the North Pacific. Often erroneously so.

Obviously the upcoming pattern will favor them more, so if that is a GFS bias then maybe it plays into that.

Of f**king course our troughing keeps getting pushed back. Now it’s mostly warmish/SW flow until the end of next week with the exception of 1 day. It’s always something.

12z Euro doubles down with the big changes for next week. Much cooler. Still a mostly dry pattern though. Energy digs in from the NE and hangs back over the west

Even though I am a fan of less warmth, I also feel this change could also potentially delay the eventual switch to a wetter pattern.
