Yup.  A cold / dry airmass comes very close to clipping us.

Highs go from 20 degrees above normal to just 12 degrees above normal.  ;)

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!

Backwards.    This anomalous and persistently clear pattern has allowed OLM to maximize radiational cooling due to its geography and sandy soil.    SEA is on a hill exposed to north and east wind.  SEA will be naturally warmer in this pattern... not UHI in this case.    

There’s probably some UHI component too as well..it doesn’t just vanish. Doesn’t mean it’s the only factor.

The EPS is much cooler with the 850s late in the week than the GFS operational.  It digs that backdoor feature in much more sharply.

Flipped the sprinklers on today.  An April first!  No foolin’!

Probably not necessary given the pattern change coming up.

The mid levels are already cooling though.  We'll see where it ends up.

 

Well it may be cooling but good chance we will actually end up a bit warmer than yesterday’s high of 76...already 73 here.

Looks like cooler air is working into the coast now probably won’t be in time to stop this from being the warmest day of the heat spell. Gonna be ready for some rain by next weekend.

One of the fastest leaf outs I can remember... does not seem like we are behind for mid-April any longer.

Up to +0.6F on the month and a whopping 0.06" in the gauge...yikes.

Red flag warning still in effect. Even trying to burn weeds spreads fire like crazy.

Still? Don't you think the fire marshals are being a 'bit' over paranoid with using up their red flags so early in the year? At this rate they'll use em all up by July 4th when we need them the most!

 Shouldn't they wait closer to summer time like late May or early June for issuing this kind of crap?  Do you think they are putting the lime in their coconut and drinking it all up?

Don’t think there’s a “limit” to the fire watches they can put out...nor is it unnecessary right now. It’s been pretty dry over the whole region this spring even more so down there.

Plant/tree growth and blooming is even behind 2015 at this point. But somehow the bug season is like 2 months or so ahead of most years I've seen here.

And funny, the jackets have found a liking to one of my garbage bins, they're nesting in it.
Googling how to handle that. ;)

The 18z GFS gets pretty cold in the 25th to 28th period.  That seems to be the time frame emerging for a significant cold trough to dig in.

Looks like it. Yet another improvement on the 18z GFS, following the 12z model suite.

The models are really liking the idea of general blockiness in the higher latitudes during week 2 with an undercutting / cool jet over the NW.  I'm a big fan of the general blocking theme emerging this year.  My money is on another big GOA block sometime in May.

What a perfect weather weekend it has been, 77 for highs both days. Currently 76. 
Just finished mowing, hose bib covers are off and hoses are hooked up! Had to water some of the plants today!

If we hit 81 degrees here it’ll tie a record for the biggest diurnal range I’ve recorded at this location.

I also wonder if some of these diurnal changes are daily records. This is like October, not so much April.
The avg high is only in the mid-50's.

This is still no April 2016 though. I would need a +5.0 Mean at the end to qualify ;)

And, lots of thunderstorms which might entirely be missing until May here.

76/25 at KLMT.

I also wonder if some of these diurnal changes are daily records. This is like October, not so much April.
The avg high is only in the mid-50's.

We camped somewhere near K Falls many years ago in late August and I remember frost on the car in the morning and (seems like) 80s in the afternoon. My wife gave the local chipmunks a few Cheezits and learned that they do not respect boundaries or personal space when there are Cheezits to be had.

And yet Seattle WFO's anomaly is much closer to OLM's.

SEA is the DCA of the PNW.

And OLM is Dulles.

Good lord I cannot get over just how amazing this stretch of weather has been! Enjoying a Margarita in a can out on the deck after two days straight of BBQ’ing and eating on the deck in shorts in mid April! And it felt like July working in the yard! 
Oh and this spider has taken over my shop, apparently it likes to golf.

Hobo spiders/giant house spiders (same arachnid family) are really interesting. They're originally from north/central Europe and while they occasionally reach goliath proportions, their bites are no worse than a pissed off wasp. They immigrated into the region via cargo ships into the port cities of Seattle and Tacoma in the late 19th century.
