Most of the days since 3/1 have hit freezing at OLM, 25 in total. Pretty impressive.

A number of record lows in there as well.  Their period of record is pretty considerable too.  Even IMBY it's been top tier for cold nights.

Too funny.    And yet lots of people are looking forward to it... people like what they like.   As we have discussed billions of times!

Well I know that I don't like sitting on a tinderbox and the prospect of our entire metro area being destroyed.

Yeah a lot more factors than just climate. Go to any city over 100,000 people on the West coast and be witness to total societal collapse...

True enough, certainly a factor in our decision to move.  Not the only reason, but definitely one of the pieces of the puzzle.

 

Check out the Asheville area.  One of my best friends from high school lives there and has a pizza shop, and his brother has a brewpub.

 

Highlands/Cashiers is really nice but spendy (I think even by West Coast standards.)  A lot of people from Atlanta have vacation/retirement homes in that area.

It’s a worthwhile sacrifice if it means sunshine prevails at Tim’s house, though.

We visited the Cashiers/Highlands area last summer. Truly amazing climate up above 4000ft there.

Temperature was 95°F back home on the day we left. The high that day in Cashiers was 73°F. Upslope flow and clouds FTW.

Noticed today that trees are leafing out in North Bend along Hwy 202... about 10 days later than last year.  

This should be a really fun week with an explosion of greenery.    :)

I don't find frost interesting at all... or cold anomalies unless there is snow on the ground in the winter.   But I do enjoy the transformation of the landscape each spring and fall.   Always have.   👍

There is usually a 6-12 month lag on that stuff.

Depends what you’re referring to. Some of the effects begin much earlier than that.

Of course whether this is potent enough to affect climate remains to be seen.

My guess is no.

50/38 here today. Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and some hail at times. Breezy!!! NW winds.

Clear and calming now. Temp is down to 41 so may set a midnight low.

A freezing west wind in Ellensburg tonight.  That gives a true picture of just how cold this air mass is.  Talk about impressive for April 10th.

Not buying the GFS for the 10 to 16 day period BTW.

Just looking at some record lows for Landsburg, and the late 1940s and 50 were ridiculous.  25 on May 1, 1954, and 27 on May 5, 1952 as just a couple of examples.  Looks like no really extraordinary cold snap to beat tomorrow though.

The ECMWF indicates many places will see lows in the low to mid 30s even into Thursday at least.  The cold nights will really mitigate the daily averages for some places.  Could be some really impressive diurnal spreads coming up.

The temperature is really tumbling here after some clouds kept it falling more slowly early in the night.  Down to 37 now.
